WHAT IS ONLINE NETWORKING?

In todayís fast-paced business environment, the ability to use and plan your time effectively and to be able to make the right connections is paramount. At ITU TELECOM AFRICA 2008 we realize the importance of this, and will feature a number of services to make this happen, including Online Networking.

Online Networking gives you the opportunity to contact clients, partners and prospects before, during and after the AFRICA 2008 event. Establishing and building key contacts online beforehand will enable you to more effectively plan out key meetings and discussions, and utilize your time at AFRICA 2008 to the full.

 

From Exhibitors, VIPs, Forum delegates and Speaker to Journalists and Visitors, all registered participants can use this vital tool to make the contacts they need.

HOW CAN I GET STARTED?

Use the online event catalogue or floorplans as tools to find out exactly who is participating and who, or what kind of companies you would like to make contact with! Then proceed to online networking to start making connections.

Online Networking starts once you have registered to attend the event. Once registered, participants will receive a username and password, which will be your gateway to online networking! From here you can submit a profile (with optional photograph) and update or cancel your profile at any time.

Once youíre registered in the online networking system, you will be able to contact other participants either individually or groups up to five (5) with an email introducing yourself, your company, products and services, and to discuss topics of mutual interest.

This valuable communication channel is now active. Be sure that you have signed up today and are fully ready to take action!
