By hosting your own workshop we'll help you to promote your expertise and knowledge to a pre–booked audience.
You'll have a 4m x 5m stand that can be configured in a variety of ways:
♦ Mini theatre with projector and seating allowing you to make a series of presentations through the day.
♦ Workbenches for you to set up your own IT or other equipment.
♦ Demonstration area for your products or services.
Networking is almost an industry in its own right and we expect this to be one of the most popular features of SheffEX.
There will be three distinct zones in the Networking Arena, each designed to do something different and interesting, but above all to engage and provide a platform for people to interact
and find out more about each other and each other's business.
Each section is available for individual sponsorship, giving you a number of options including:
♦ Branding with your banners, merchandise and promotional materials.
♦ Use your own people to meet and greet.
♦ Display your products.
The options for each networking zone include:
Peer to peer networking with a group around a boardroom table with a series of timed meetings. Each Boardroom meeting has a different theme chosen beforehand to attract
the people with expertise and interest in that topic. Potential subjects include traditional high level main board topics such as finance, legal, sales, production, health and safety,
human resources, and forward planning.
Like speed dating, but with business cards instead of a glass of Dutch courage. In one a minute burst, one person will pitch themselves and their business to the other.
Then they swap. Then we move them around and they do it again, giving them the opportunity to work an entire group without the worry of embarrassing silences or running out of something to day.
Facetime is a pre-booked one to one sessions with an expert in a particular field. It's a great way of creating a series of pre–booked appointments throughout the day that
you can support with your expertise.
Hosting one or more events that can be either a drop–in or pre–booked format.
