Speed Networking

Speed networking is a series of timed, eight minute appointments between bloggers and sponsors. Sessions are offered both days of the conference, according to the time schedule below. If you are unable to secure a time to meet with a sponsor via BloggerBridge, remember that sponsors will be staffing their table throughout the event and you are welcome to stop by to chat at any time.

For those participating in speed networking appointments, we ask for your compliance with the timed appointments and to move your next appointment when directed to do so.

Date & Time:

  • Friday, July 15th – 3:15pm – 5:15pm
  • Saturday, July 16th – 3:10pm – 5:10pm

 

Location: Auditorium 4th level Multi-Purpose Area 1

Details: Speed networking appointments are pre-set and last 8 minutes each, followed by a two-minute period to move to the next appointment. We will be making announcements to keep you on schedule as you meet with all of your appointments, and ask that you observe all time limitations. If you haven’t yet set up your profile yet, please use this link below to get started.

Please use the email address you used to register for TBEX (that is also your Username) to log in. If you don’t have a login yet, please request a new password. That should re-set things and let you log in.
