Speed Networking

A much loved feature at WTM London and back again for 2022 due to popular demand, introductions made at WTM London Speed Networking sessions have helped many business make new contacts, build their product offering and maximise their time at the show.

With nothing to lose and everything to gain, speed networking provides a fun, exhilarating and informal way to meet many suppliers in a short amount of time and our sessions have produced many long standing new partnerships. Receiving lots of positive feedback and requests to return, the sessions are always in high demand, so with limited places applying early is key!.

This year we are offering two key speed networking opportunities for buyers and exhibitors with one session specifically tailored to welcome our first time buyers at WTM London.

What is speed networking?

  • Speed networking last for 1.5hrs and consists of a rotation of short 5 minute introductory meetings with Exhibitors. While this sounds like a long time, believe us when we say that time flies!
  • Buyers are seated at individual tables for the duration of the session and the Exhibitors rotate among the buyers every 5 minutes
  • Each 5 minute meeting will be sounded by a bell and an announcement
  • A speed networking brochure features a list of buyer participants along with their products and geographical regions of interest
  • Speed networking takes place before the show opens so there is no overlap with any prescheduled meetings

What is the cost to attend?

  • Speed networking is free for buyers however we do ask for £100 deposit to ensure attendance.
  • This is a deposit and not a fee and it is returned once attendance at the relevant session has been verified

What is the benefit of speed networking?

  • Find relevant leads matched to your business needs
  • Forge new business relationships
  • Set up longer meetings during the show
  • Meet Exhibitors you weren’t able to pre-schedule a meeting with
  • Maximise business leads by meeting Exhibitors you otherwise might not have had the opportunity to meet at the show
