MEET THE FRENCH – B2B SPEED MEETING SESSION
5.00-6.00pm Sunday 27th January 2013 - Networking Village (Level 1)
AIM and BureauExport are hosting a B2B speed meeting session for UK and French companies to get connected.
The concept is easy, a short time slot to get your point across without wasting time and the opportunity to make 10 new contacts – all for the investment of an hour – what could be easier!
A fast way for you to make new contacts and form strong business relationships focusing on licensing and distribution deals. Each pair of delegates has a combined 5 minutes (ie 2.5 mins each) to promote their business and exchange information with the person sitting opposite them, before moving along to the next delegate. You need to come prepared with your music, promotional material and business cards. Think “elevator pitch” - you only have 5 total minutes per meeting, so there is no time for detail! Introduce yourself, your company and your artists(s)/services – with just the key facts. If you’d like to talk to any of the delegates further, agree to have a more in-depth chat after the session.
Delegates will be required to supply contact information and some basic information about their company, which will be circulated by email before the session.
Places are limited so will only be allocated to those who pre-register and confirm their booking before midem (registration form can be downloaded from the bottom of this page). Application Deadline Friday 11th January 2013
MEET THE INDEPENDENTS NETWORKING SESSION - ORGANISED BY IMPALA
