Networking Live

NetworkingLive is an on-line forum where delegates, sponsors and speakers can connect with each other in the weeks before the conference to make appointments.

Speed Networking

A rapid business card exchange session called Speed Networking takes place in the early part of the AHIF programme. Essentially speed dating for business, this unique opportunity allowed delegates to meet each other, exchange business cards and move on to meet the next person. Delegates are requested to bring plenty of business cards to participate in the fatest, most beneficial and enjoyable 60 minutes of networking you will ever do!
