How Is Your Itinerary Assembled?

Your personalized itinerary is assembled via our online appointment system. A few weeks before the event, you will select the conference sessions you wish to attend and the sponsor locations (economic development organizations) you want to meet with. Only with your acceptance will a meeting be scheduled. Typically you will spend 50% of your time in conferences, with the remainder of your time spent in educational sessions and/or meals.

Your itinerary will be broken down as follows:

  • One-on-One Meetings: These 30-minute meetings are held with individual location sponsors. Sponsors remain in their meeting area for the business hours of the day and delegates circulate to meetings. On average, delegates can expect to have 10-15 prescheduled appointments over the course of the event, depending upon your interest.
  • Mealtime Meetings: Mealtimes are part of the meeting itinerary and delegates’ table seating will be determined by our matching system and based on meeting preferences.
  • Conference Sessions: Delegates will spend a portion of their time in a variety of keynotes, seminars, workshops, and think tanks.
  • Ad-Hoc Meetings: Free time at the event is limited. However, some time is available to arrange ad hoc meetings with delegates, sponsors, and speakers, as requested.
