Lignofuels 2024 testimonials:

Juha Hartikainen, NordFuel – The event was good and size was great not too big, not too small with only relevant people attending event.
Jorge Ribeiro, Galp – I consider that the conference was very well organized and, for me, very useful concerning the objectives we had.
Daniel Torrao Pio, The Navigator Company – 10/10 gig, good topics and excellent networking”

 

At the event we strive not only to bring you to the same location at the same time as your customers/suppliers/peers, we strive to ensure you meet face-to-face with each and every one of your target contacts and to provide you with the time you need to have multiple unhurried conversations with them and build a lasting business relationship:

• 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.
