PPLI/VA's high-impact networking

Meet the people who matter to you

We’ve structured PPLI to make it easy for you to connect with the industry leaders that our event brings together. With lots of dedicated networking time and a smart matchmaking tool, it’s never been easier to start a conversation with the right person.

Start networking before the event

We’ll open up the digital platform two weeks before the event, so you can create a profile and start getting to know your fellow attendees. 

The more you say about yourself, the more likely you’ll meet people most relevant to you. 

Make sure your networking starts on the right foot.


  • Your remote control to see the live sessions, poll, Q&A and Room Radar - to meet people watching the same content at the venue & online
  • Your networking tool, see connections, book meetings, chat, video call,
  • Take the event with you – use your digital briefcase to collect content from exhibitors, sessions and around the venue to further your knowledge and refer to later.

Easily arrange and accept meetings

The networking part of the digital platform enables you to arrange meetings before, during and after the event.

Once you have found a time that's convenient for both you, the meeting will be added to your personalized event schedule.

Making it easy to have the conversations you want, with the people you want. Wherever you are, and whenever works best for you.

Find like-minded attendees onsite

The event agenda breaks into two streams, giving you a chance to dive deeper into topics that interest you most. You'll join like-minded attendees, so save some business cards.

Stick around for a drink

Prefer to network the old fashioned way? We've got you covered. The first day ends with a happy hour and networking session, where you can connect with attendees. Drinks are on us!

Follow up after the event

After the event, follow up with your new connections. 

The platform will stay open for one week after the event finishes.

So if there's anyone you weren’t able to connect with during the week you can still use the platform to connect with them.
