Networking

The two most important ingredients in concluding successful deals are market knowledge and the opportunity to network with the right people. Networking is the essence of AHTIC and many opportunities are provided throughout the conference

Networking Live

NetworkingLive is an online forum where delegates, sponsors and speakers can connect with each other in the weeks before the conference to make appointments.

Speed Business Card Exchange

The fast paced business card exchange is a popular ice breaker. It could be the most beneficial 60 minutes of networking you will ever do!

Sponsor's Exhibition
