Meeting Request Service

Fern Millican works closely with our sponsors and exhibitors to build relationships between them and our senior level service provider attendees, helping to facilitate this through exclusive one-to-one meetings and introductions onsite.

This ensures our sponsors optimise their time during the conference, meaning they can more easily measure, and maximise, event ROI.

“Event was wonderful, well put together and managed. Especially appreciated all the work done by Informa team to set up introductions and meetings with vendors & partners. Enjoyed the intimacy of the environment and accessibility. Very successful in my mind”

Kyle Williams, Business Development, US Cellular

“Extremely professionally organised. Lauren was amazing with scheduling. Extremely impressed, great value”

Tyler Kratz, CEO, DAS Communications

Executive Speed Networking

Enjoy the benefits of networking by participating in our VIP speed networking sessions, which take place during the morning refreshment breaks. This is a guaranteed chance to pitch your most successful solutions to senior operator delegates – meet 20 senior operator decision-makers in 30 minutes.

All exhibitors and sponsors have the opportunity to take part. Swap business cards and pitch your most promising products and services. If there is mutual interest you have the ideal platform from which to follow up later.

Case Study

Event: SDN World
No. of Attendees: 200
No. of meetings: 42
No. of Onsite Introductions: 24

At SDN World 2013 a total of 42 meetings were organised for sponsors in advance of the event from a wide range of operator and analyst companies. In addition, another 24 informal introductions were made onsite at the event.

VMWare had a total of 8 pre-scheduled meetings with senior level operator attendees organised for them and they were then introduced to a further 5 key target individuals onsite at the event. These meetings were conducted with very high level attendees from operator companies – including Director of Transversal Projects and Innovation, CEO, Vice President, Chief Architect (amongst others).

VMWare gave some excellent feedback on the event:

“I wanted to take a moment to extend my highest compliments on the superb work of two employees, Lauren Menzies and Emily Farrar. Both have been highly attentive, kept events and sessions perfectly on track and maintained an attitude of friendly professionalism throughout the proceedings. We will return, thanks to their efforts on our behalf.”

Bill Wright, Senior Manager, Global Strategic Planning, VMWare
