Networking Opportunities


You can use the award-winning Brella networking app to identify prospects and set up meetings 2 weeks before you arrive onsite. 

Brella has an enhanced match-making facility that will seek out new contacts for you. 

You can schedule meetings with old friends and new prospects in the dedicated meeting zone - just don't forget your business cards!


Fill out your attendee profile in the app with your areas of expertise and the attendee types you'd like to meet. 

Brella's smart algorithm will then identify and suggest like-minded people or those seeking your expertise that you might want to meet. 

You can then use the app to approach new prospects and schedule an introductory meeting in the Brella zone.

Off the record interactive discussions

GAD boardroom discussions are designed to get people talking and sharing expertise. 

Limited to 25 participants and held under Chatham House Rule, these intimate discussion forums will draw on the experience of hosts and participants to tackle common business challenges.

Meet the speakers

During networking breaks, discussion roundtables will be hosted by speakers, VIPs and investors. 

This is your chance to put your question directly to our high profile speakers. 


Prefer to network the old fashioned way? We’ve got you covered. 

Each conference day ends with a happy hour and networking session to connect with all the new contacts you have made. Drinks are on us!

Follow up after the event

After the event, follow up with your new connections. If there's anyone you weren’t able to meet on site, you can still use Brella to connect with them.

GAD is a must on our calendar. It presents a fantastic opportunity to check the temperature of our industry; to preview new opportunities; and, of course, to network with friends and colleagues.
