Each P2PI CONNECT meeting is arranged considering your company’s meeting preferences, cross-referenced with those of our brand participants. Our goal is to deliver each of your top-requested meetings while also providing opportunities to uncover new and unanticipated relationships.

Once all brand profiles are complete, your designee will browse all participating profiles & prioritize your team’s meeting preferences. While we cannot guarantee specific meetings, we do our best to arrange the most desirable meetings considering all parties’ meeting preferences.

Profile collections begins May 8 and must be turned in by May 26.

We recommend that you bring relevant marketing materials for your meetings. Beyond that, you are not required to anything else. If you want to enhance your space with additional A/V, food and/or beverage, and/or upgraded furniture, the information for those items is in the other tabs.
