Poznań Speed Business Mixer brings together firms from across Europe

Header spcc 2016 10a

The event took place on 23 February 2016.

in co-operation with Gold Sponsors:

and Silver Sponsor:

Poznań's Hotel Andersia was the venue for another business networking event jointly organised by the British Polish Chamber of Commerce in cooperation with the German Polish Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Belgian Chamber of Commerce, the Scandinavian-Polish Chamber of Commerce, the Swiss Chamber of Commerce in Poland and the Polish-French Chamber of Commerce.

The Speed Business Mixer is an attractive and proven format in which each participant takes part in a series of direct meetings, during which they have an opportunity to present briefly their company, talk about their offer and services, exchange business cards, make new contacts, and have the chance to acquire new customers, suppliers or investors. Each participant was assigned to a different table at which they would meet with nine other people representing potential clients. Each session around the tables lasted about 20 minutes. After its completion, on a given signal, participants would move to another pre-determined table. This allowed all participants to come out with over 30 new contacts after one hour. This unique networking formula allows business people to get many contacts in a short time while having fun and enjoying a get together.

The formal part of the event around the tables was followed by a usual business mixer where over drinks, guests could continue the more promising business conversations from the formal meetings. The event was a success thanks to the commitment of the organisers and the sponsors.
