Networking Opportunities

Meet those you came to learn from

Discover those you didn’t even know could offer the solutions you need to succeed

Speed Networking

Speed Networking Sessions will take place daily at the event allowing buyers and sellers to come together through a series of short 3 minute meetings enabling professionals to swap business cards and get an overview of each other’s business.

Speed Networking sessions are organized by Melinda Templeman, VIP Relations Manager, and are run on an invite only basis.

Facilitated Meetings

The VIP Networking Team at Cloud Native World are dedicated to ensuring that attendees make the most out of their time at the show. Working with senior level executives and solution providers, 1-to-1 meetings are arranged on behalf of higher level sponsorship packages to enable maximum ROI at the show.

If you want to meet senior level decision makers from the ecosystem, then get in touch with the team for more information about how to utilize this service at the show.

Hosted Lunch Tables

We’ve identified that during the hustle and bustle of conferences you don’t always get to meet some of the most important delegates. What happened to that really great contact you wanted to swap business cards with, or even better, get to know properly?

Our hosted lunch tables ensure this doesn’t happen! Open to our VIPs, speakers and selected delegates, taking part in this informal session means you can get a decent chance to build relationships with the right people.

How do they work?

  • We’ll get 6-8 of our best speakers, those who you’d want to meet, and book them in to host a lunch table
  • You can sign up for seats at the registration desk on the day (allocated on a first come, first served basis)
  • You just have to turn up for lunch and sit down. Easy!


At our successful launch event, Container World, we worked with the Container Days team to host the Open Container Night Meetup at the end of the first day of the conference.Hosted by the un-conference expert, Dave Nielsen, the evening attracted active members of the Container community, who enjoyed more talks, networking, drinks, and refreshments like beers, pretzels and ice cream.
