Networking Opportunities

Grow Your Network. Expand Your Opportunities.

Meet and network with 450+ experts from banks, buy-side, regulators, Silicon Valley, academia and beyond

We’ve structured QuantMinds International to make it easy for you to connect with a global audience in Hamburg or from the comfort of your own home or office. With lots of dedicated networking time built into the agenda, our networking platform makes it easy to start conversations with the right people.


We’ll open up the digital platform two weeks before the event for both physical and digital attendees, 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.


Once you've set up your profile, you'll be able to browse the attendee directory to see who else is attending.

If you see someone you’d like to meet, reach out to them through the platform to make contact and schedule a meeting in person or online.

Make lasting connections

Attendees with a physical pass can enjoy a wide range of networking events in Hamburg including drinks receptions, meet the speaker lunch tables and champagne roundtables. 

Helping you to nurture existing relationships and build new contacts.


The networking part of the digital platform will enable physical and digital-only attendees to arrange meetings before, during and after the event. 

When a meeting is agreed upon,  you can simply meet in person in Hamburg or the platform will provide a link to connect face-to-face via video chat. 

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


For digital-only passes you can still break-out into small group discussions to debate the issues facing you and your company. Hear what your peers are thinking about the topic and improve your market knowledge whilst broadening your network.

These small, focused discussion groups will only be available while the event is live - make sure you don't miss out!

Meet and network at the trade war game

Hosted by John Hulsman, Geopolitical Expert & Life Member at U.S. Council on Foreign Relations, attendees will have an opportunity to take part in a trade war game simulation mimicking current global politics.

With six roundtables representing the US, Canada, Mexico, EU, China and Japan, put yourself in the shoes of Presidents and Prime Ministers and assess how you will manoeuvre your way through the geopolitical uncertainty.


After the event, follow up with your new connections. 

The platform will stay open for physical and digital attendees one week after the event finishes.

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