Networking Opportunities


Use our new digital platform which is tailored to give you an optimum networking and content access experience

Networking and content access for 5 weeks

Make new business contacts

Networking opens 30 November

A week before the live event the networking platform will open for all attendees. You can start making new contacts as soon as your networking.

We've taken the hard work out for you

Save time, and rather than just checking a list of who is attending, answer some simple questions and the networking algorithm will give you a list of suggested connections. 

The virtual coffee lounge

The Virtual Coffee Lounge is open from all day from 30 November - 7 January. Allowing attendees to join coffee networking discussions from the moment the online networking opens, during the live event and until the end of virtual event. 

The Coffee tables provide you with the opportunity to network on a virtual table as though you were in a room together. You can see who is on each table before you join. Once at the table you can share your camera, join by audio or just use the chat function. 

Focused group chats

Join interactive roundtable discussions of up to 10 people. These are breakout sessions which will form part of the agenda and give you the opportunity for meaningful discussions with other groups of attendees on specific topic areas in the event.

Audience Interaction

Enjoy real-time insight and interaction: see who else is watching the live presentations and network with them within the virtual conference room!

Audience members can submit questions to the speakers through the platform chat feature or be invited on-stage with their camera and/or audio only to ask questions from the speaker or panel, much as they would in a live conference hall setting with a microphone.
