Get your INTA networking up to speed

In the Exhibit Hall this year you can find many items of interest from around the world. These include Russian dolls, traditional Chinese outfits, Ecuadorian chocolate, Vietnamese figurines and pirates of the Caribbean. Cuddly toys also appear popular among exhibitors this year. You can even win some at one stand if you manage to throw a sticky ball at a target. At INTA’s stand you can view samples of some counterfeit goods, including fake designer jeans and purses.

In addition, you can make 20 new friends in an hour in the Speed Networking section of the Exhibition Hall. The 40 busy networkers at the 20 tables in the section must change tables every three minutes.

Sessions last an hour. Monday and Tuesday each have sessions at 10:30 am, 12:00 pm, 1:30 pm and 3:00 pm, while Wednesday has sessions at 10:30 am and 12:00 pm.

Among the tips provided to speed networkers are: consider developing an “elevator pitch” of a response you would give in any situation when someone asks you who you are or what you do, think about how you want to describe yourself and consider letting the other person talk first.
