Connected Leaders Meetings Programme

Our goal is for you to be inspired to do business, learn, and exchange ideas.

Your Journey As a Buyer Explained.

Buyer Focus Meeting Programme

Our goal is for you to be inspired to do business, learn, and exchange ideas. From completing your application, to attending our Connected Leaders Programme your dedicated VIP Relations team is here every step of the way to assist you in making the most of your journey.

Unlike other meeting programmes, we are taking more consultative approach, focusing on your needs, understanding your obstacles, and developing tailored solutions to the challenges your organisation is facing.

Through series of questions and support from our dedicated VIP Relations team, we are aiming to connect you with most relevant suppliers offering solutions tailored to your needs. 


Applications are opening on Monday 22nd February – Thursday 6th May.


Connected Buyers Programme is taking place from 10 - 12 May, but we know how valuable your time is, so for your convenience we extended this window to two weeks in which you can conduct your virtual meetings.

Your preference selection is a key component of your success at Connected Leaders. We encourage you to be open to meetings with different stakeholders and be strategic. Your preferences play an integral role to the meetings that are confirmed for you in your diary and are pivotal to your experience at Connected Leaders Programme. If you are invited by one of our event partners, our dedicated VIP manager will make an email introduction and will help you to arrange your virtual appointment.
