Meet the people who matter most to you

Meetings that matter

The ConnectMe Lounge in the expo hall is easily the best place to arrange your meetings during the event. Pre-book through the networking app and connect at your assigned table when the time comes. 

2023 attendee feedback and app data showed an average of 12.5 meetings per person took place across the three days. Resulting in an incredible 15,000+ meetings!

Connect with innovators

Finovate's signature short-form, live-demo format makes it easy to see a large number of innovations in a short space of time. 

We break up the demos with plenty of networking opportunities so that you can meet the founders and teams who caught your interest. 

Join them at their demo stands to see the technology one-on-one or schedule meetings with them through the event app.

Note: Demoers only have a stand on the day of their demo, either May 21 or 22. All companies can be reached through the networking app. 

Stick around for a drink

Sit back, enjoy the networking receptions at end of Tuesday and Wednesday and let the conversations flow. Drinks are on us!
