WTM Speed Networking

What is WTM Speed Networking?

WTM Speed Networking offered WTM 2013 a thriving start to the prosperous event with sessions taking place on Monday and Thursday mornings.

Organisers anticipate 2013’s Monday and Thursday networking sessions will help generate deals worth over more than £2.2 billion.

296 senior decision makers of the WTM Buyers' Club were ready to conduct business with over 1100 exhibitors over the two WTM Speed Networking events in 2013.

With 5-minute slots, timed on a giant centre stage clock, the buyers had the opportunity to meet, greet and discuss business deals. Buyers were sectioned and colour matched to the regions that they most wished to buy from. The foundations for new contacts were agreed and long term business partnerships formed, all in one hour.

WTM Means Business was the key theme for WTM 2013 and the WTM Speed Networking sessions were no different. Providing an invaluable opportunity, buyers were able to fulfil their expectations whilst expanding their connections and businesses. WTM matches the right buyers to exhibitors and will continue to be an unmissable diary date for WTM 2014.

Registration for WTM Speed Networking 2014 will open later in the year, to be kept up to date with all WTM Speed Networking and WTM Buyers' Club information, register your interest below.
