Event registration and delegate management specialist Event Connections will debut its new 1-2-1 meetings platform ahead of Venturefest Oxford later this month.

The 1-2-1 meeting system has been designed to offer delegates an easy way to connect with other attendees at events without the need for an app or separate provider. 

Andy Barr, director at Event Connections, said: “With our new 1-2-1 meetings system, event organisers can now offer all delegates a chance to truly connect and network at large scale events without the need for a separate app. We could not be more thrilled with how the new system has worked out and we are looking forward to seeing the results when we officially launch the product at Venturefest 2016.” 

The meeting system will sit within Event Connections’ online registration platform and allows delegates to opt into the networking system as part of the registration process and create a profile. Attendees will then be able to send a meeting request to another delegate with a suggested meeting time. If accepted, the system then allocates an available meeting space at the event. A delegate’s availability will take into account other meetings as well as any seminars that they have signed up to.

The new 1-2-1 meetings system will be launched at Venturefest, Oxford’s flagship annual networking event for more than  800 delegates taking place on 29 June at the Kings’ Centre in Oxford.
