As you know we have had to cancel our face-to-face meeting in Berlin this year and have decided to replace it with a virtual meeting. We know that many of you still want the opportunity to meet and talk business so we have created a space where you can still do this…
We are trying to keep the format of the Virtual Meeting as close to the real thing as possible. We are going to give you structured meeting times so you can make sure you get to talk to the companies you want to meet and we will also give networking time, which will be very much like our welcome receptions, you can join different tables and chat to whoever is sat at that table.
When you have registered for the event you will be able to pick the company you would like to meet and we will show you the times that you are both available. You can then select the time, choose which delegate from that company you would like to meet and write a note about what you want to talk about. The meeting request will only go into your diary once the other person has accepted the request. Once accepted, this time will show other delegates that you are ‘unavailable’ at this time.
Meeting times will be available 24 hours so if you need to meet with someone who has a 10 hour time difference from you, you can find a time that works best for you both.
We will also show you your agenda for the week - which companies you are meeting at what time.
You will then arrange your meeting however you choose using Zoom, Microsoft Teams, FaceTime, WhatsApp, Facebook, Skype account or whatever you prefer. A telephone meeting is also suitable if you wish.
We are working with Remo to offer the networking part of the meeting (the fun part!). Each company will be shown as their company logo, the room will be full of different size tables and you can click on one of these tables. Once you have clicked, your video will pop up on your screen along with the videos of whoever else is sitting at that table.
You can easily move tables throughout the sessions and chat to lots of different delegates. Please note that these meetings are not private, delegates can join your table at any time. The only time that you could have a private chat is if you are on a table of two.
We will have a Remo session every day lasting around 2 hours. We will schedule these sessions at different times through the week trying to make it work as best as possible for different time zones.
