Enhance Your Profile, Increase Your Performance
The Performance Marketing industry depends and indeed thrives on digital channels, but this has traditionally meant that we often neglect the power of face-to-face meetings.
Getting out of the office and meeting people remains the best way to do business – Fact!
This is why networking is intrinsic to a4u events.
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 London 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, a4u puts people in touch – qualified connections that improve business results.
a4uexpo London begins with a relaxed and informal networking event on the evening before the first conference day. Aimed at bringing delegates, speakers and sponsors together to meet before the main conference begins, this is an ideal first chance to network and share ideas before two days of intensive learning and education.
As an international event, we attract crowds that fly in from abroad a day or two early. As such, we like to encourage a friendly yet productive environment for people to meet friends and business colleagues alike.
Expo Hall Networking Reception
As day one of a4uexpo London 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.
