•  A pre-event informal introduction the evening before the conference
•  A minimum of five hours’ networking built into the two day conference agenda
•  A networking grid which enables you to make your target contacts aware you are looking for them
•  The option to join either social drinks or dinner during the evening of Day One
•  ACI’s on-site team will assist you in locating your hard-to-find target contacts & make face-to-face introductions

Of course, if there is anybody you are unable to meet over the two days, ACI’s event team will do their best to initiate contact after the event.
