Networking Opportunities

Hosted Lunch Tables

Container World Hosted Lunch Tables – your chance to actually build relationships and spend time with people at a conference!

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

Our hosted lunch tables are a way to ensure that this happens. Open to our VIPs, speakers and selected delegates, taking part in this really informal session means you can get a decent chance to actually 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!

Speed Networking

Speed Networking Sessions will take place daily at the event allowing buyers and sellers to come together through a series of short 2 minute meetings enabling professionals to swap business cards and get an overview of each other’s business.

Speed Networking Sessions are organised by VIP Relations Manager, Tim Katz and are run on an invite only basis. If you would like more information about getting involved please email

"We very much enjoyed the speed networking even. We have acquired booth space for next year because of the good experience" - Chief Scientist, Geenwave

Facilitated Meetings

The VIP Networking Team at Container 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.

Networking Drinks

Container World attendees are invited to exclusive Networking Drinks after the conference on February 17.  This is a perfect opportunity to mingle with other professionals in a relaxed informal atmosphere, catch up with a speaker you saw present or meet that potential customer over a glass of wine.
