Increase your Global Presence
and Stand Out in an ever Growing Market
Networking is a key part of any a4uexpo and produces tangible results. Even in an increasingly digital world, meeting face to face remains the best way to do business; building relationships and generating trust.
Networking involves personal commitment and enhances business opportunities. When carried out effectively it can offer wider scope and simpler implementation than the more costly aspects of your marketing agenda. To maximise the possibilities of networking, it is important that you surround yourself with the right kind of people to do business with; Decision Makers, Marketing Managers, Directors, E-commerce Managers, Affiliate Managers and people with the power to sign off deals in an atmosphere conducive to interaction.
a4uexpo Europe focuses heavily on networking across a range of structured and informal networking opportunities, enabling delegates to enhance existing relationships and establish new ones. Bringing people together is another string to the a4uexpo bow.
As the number one forum for performance marketing on an international level, PerformanceIN puts people in touch – qualified connections that improve business results.

First evening networking Reception
a4uexpo Europe attracts delegates from all over the world, many of whom fly in a day or two early. This is why, the evening before the first conference day, we like to offer a relaxed but productive environment for delegates to catch up with friends and colleagues alike and potentially meet new ones.
The first evening drinks reception is an informal networking event aimed at bringing together delegates, speakers, sponsors and exhibitors to network and share insight before the two packed and exciting days of education and interaction begin.
Expo Hall Networking Reception
As day one of a4uexpo Europe comes to a close, we offer the second of our networking receptions in the expo hall. Meeting other delegates and exhibitors in this setting gives delegates a chance to build on previous conversations from throughout the day, as well as a great opportunity to find out first-hand the offerings from the best performance marketing enterprises across the continent.
Official a4uexpo Networking Party
Taking place on the evening of Day1 of the show, the a4uexpo Official Networking party has become the stuff of industry legend, providing the opportunity for delegates to continue to network and develop vital business relationships whilst enjoying a beverage or two in a relaxed and informal environment.
Miss it and miss out!
