It’s a rare opportunity to get your foot in the door
When you register, your profile will be assessed and given to the buyers so that we can arrange a schedule of appointments for you with businesses who are looking for the products or service you offer.
Make your pitch
On the day, you’ll be able to pitch, present and explore opportunities with key decision makers on a one to one basis.
We’ll help you prepare and follow up
Your success depends on how well you prepare for your meetings and how you follow up afterwards. So we provide you with all the tools and information you need to help with that. Just attend one of our seminars.
Extend your networking with our App
Our venue provides space and opportunity to network and our Delegate Select App enables you to identify businesses who may be of interest and are available on the day to meet. You can even scan a QR code embedded in another attendees’ badge to capture their contact details making follow up easy.

Last year 128 local businesses and 21 big businesses took part in over 500 formal meetings and many, many more informal ones! A buffet lunch is included and there’s Wi-Fi and quiet rooms available to give you a productive day.
