FLORAL FLASH Speed Networking
Tuesday, June 26, 2018 | 8:15am – 9:30am
Here at IFE, we strive to create as many opportunities as possible to connect key buyers with new suppliers. For the second year, we are hosting Floral Flash Speed Networking sessions as a fun and quick way to make important connections. Last year was we hosted over nearly 200 mini-meetings and we received lots of insightful feedback to make the event even more successful this year.
How does it work?
- Fill out the application below from our partners at Speednetworking.com, a third party organization that specializes in buyer/supplier matching at industry expos like IFE.
- Applications will be processed to ensure the best possible matches and applicants will be notified of who they are meeting with at least 48 hours before the show and given a schedule for their morning meetings.
- Participants arrive Tuesday morning and will be given instructions and table assignments/schedules. Then it’s time to network!
- Buyers will hop around to different supplier tables for quick “flash” meetings – less than 10 minutes each. Think of this as your “elevator pitch” you will have just a few minutes to connect – we do this to ensure that participants meet as many people as possible. Don’t worry, there is ample time to continue the conversation at our networking receptions and on the show floor!
How much will this cost? What’s the catch?
This program is completely FREE of charge to both registered buyers and exhibitors! Space is very limited and unfortunately not every supplier applicant is guaranteed a spot. We do our best to work with Speednetworking.com to ensure that we can host as many meetings as possible. This year we will be notifying matches at least 48 hours in advance to allow more time to prepare. The idea is to quickly and spontaneously meet as many contacts as possible. For those that would like to continue to meet longer after the Speed Networking is over, IFE offers complimentary meeting space for buyers in the Key Buyer lounge as well as exhibitor rooms.
