Event Network

Attendee Networking Platform

Event Network is a messaging feature that allows you to communicate with other registered delegates before and during this event.

How it Works: This networking feature allows you to search our database of registered delegates to find the person you wish to communicate with.

Notifications: When a delegate has contacted you in Event Network, you’ll receive notification via e-mail that states "You have received a message through Event Network." The email contains a web-link that when clicked, connects you to this webpage - Event Network login page.
