The VetHealth Global Business Partnering program has given hundreds of VHG delegates incredible opportunities to meet directly with key decision makers, maximizing their business connections with an international group of investors, licensing/business partners, suppliers, customers, government agencies and researchers.
The Business Partnering Program is a dedicated part of the VetHealth Global program and gives you the opportunity to set up 20-minute pre-scheduled meetings. The program is a great complement to your informal networking opportunities throughout the conference. Access to the partnering program is included in a full-conference registration. And a special Priority Access to Partnering Package is being made available to some 2019 VHG sponsors.
You can indicate in the online registration form that you are interested in participating in the Business Partnering Program. We will notify you when the partnering site is open and offer you your login information. At that time, you can sign in and fill out your profile, tailor your meeting availability and review profiles of others leading up to the symposium. Once the meeting scheduling function opens, you will then be able to request and schedule meetings with other delegates during the times set aside in the program for one-to-one partnering meetings.
Partnering allows you to make the most of your time by ensuring you have those important one-to-one conversations with key contacts that will move your plans forward and discuss collaborations.
Partnering Help Desk
There will be a partnering help desk located next to the registration desk at the conference where you can review and print out your latest meeting schedule online. The schedule will list your meeting’s schedule, the people you are meeting with and the corresponding table numbers.
Partnering Meetings Room
There will be a dedicated room where all regular partnering meetings will take place at individually numbered tables. Many meetings are typically one-to-one, but we will have extra chairs available if you want to invite colleagues to any meetings. The Partnering Program team will be onsite to direct meetings and to provide assistance. Tables are numbered to help identify the location of your meetings which corresponds to your schedule. A clock/timer will be displayed and a bell will sound to give you advance notice to wrap up discussions and again when the time is up, so you can move to your next meeting. We request that you arrive promptly for all your meetings to ensure a smooth program.
Priority Access to Partnering Package
New for VHG 2019 is the Priority Access to Partnering Package, which is available to top-level sponsors and which will allow early priority access to the online partnering scheduler and provides sponsors with private meeting room space throughout the duration of the Conference.
Mobile device access to Partnering Site
The online partnering site is fully optimized for mobile devices e.g. smart phones, tablets and this is a great way to check in leading up to and during the conference to request meetings, accept meeting invitations and view your schedule.
We will provide you with the URL for the partnering site once the site is open. All those who register for partnering will receive a notification.
