Don't miss this fun and innovative way to start the conference and build lasting connections with colleagues from around the world. GALA Speed Networking is a structured opportunity to accelerate your conference networking experience through short rounds of introductions in small-group formats.

A new and improved version of GALA Speed Networking was introduced in Monaco and received rave reviews. The new format allows you to meet approximately 50-70 people in 90 minutes.

How it works:

  • Sign up! Pre-register for speed networking when you register for the conference.
  • When you pick up your badge at registration, you will receive a card with table assignments.
  • You will spend approximately 8-10 minutes at each table, introducing yourself to the others and listening to their introductions.
  • We'll give you some time for conversations and follow-up questions.
  • The emcee will tell you when to move to the next table on your list, and you will repeat the introduction process.
  • There will be six or seven rounds of introductions.
