One-to-one meetings are the best way to do business – whether making new contacts, or furthering and sealing your future contracts.

CONNECT give you the power to control your own meetings. All delegates have access to the online Delegate Account, a user-friendly site providing essential delegate information, event updates, special offers and the online meeting planner. You will be able to request and confirm meetings with other delegates (airports, airlines, industry suppliers, consultants, tour operators and tourist board representatives). You arrange your meetings and print out your own event schedule prior to the event, so you know who you will be meeting with and when. The system will go live 5 weeks prior to CONNECT.

On-site meetings take place in two dedicated lounges:

  • Airline meetings lounge where airports and suppliers can discuss future strategy with commercial and route development decision-makers from Europe's leading airlines
  • Airport meetings lounge a space for airports, industry suppliers and consultants to meet and build relationships for stronger growth and partnerships

The 20 minute meetings run to a subtle timer system to mark the start and end of each meeting, and additional meetings can be organized onsite with the help of the dedicated meetings team.

Networking doesn't just take place in the meeting lounges – coffee breaks and networking lunches allow delegates a welcome pause, and CONNECT's famous evening networking events allow delegates to relax and further their discussions whilst experiencing the best of the host destination and region.
