PPLI/VA's high-impact networking
Meet the people who matter to you
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.
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.
