How the brokerage event works

1. Registration
Registration opens on 11th July until 28th August

2. Set up a profile
Next you create a profile that will be visible to other participants on the event website. The profile should describe what you are looking for and can offer to potential partners.  The sooner you set up your profile, the better chance other delegates will have to request meetings with you.

3. Request meetings
From the 10th August you can start to receive and send meetings requests to other participants who you would like to meet at the event.  You have until August 28th to finalise your meeting requests.

4. Build connections
A few days prior to the event you will receive an email with your meetings schedule showing who you will meet, what time, and the table number where the meeting will take place.  You can always check this online or via the app.
