MATCHMAKING & NETWORKING OPTIONS
The AFCEA NOVA Small Business Enterprise IT Day 2022 offers multiple networking opportunities to encourage attendees to collaborate and connect with sponsors and fellow attendees as well as government agency representatives and key prime contractors
You MUST be registered for the event to participate in any of the networking activities.
The Exhibit Hall will be open throughout the day for attendees to meet with our Event Sponsors and Exhibitors. View the event Agenda for dedicated networking break time slots.
Join us for the Networking Reception in the Exhibit Hall from 3:30-5:00pm.
Event Sponsors have the option to create a Sponsor Profile. Visit the Sponsor Profile page for company information and to review any collateral or informative links available. This is a great way to learn more about the Sponsor prior to visiting their Exhibitor Table on event day.
Meetings with Conference Attendees
Upon registration confirmation, conference attendees will have access to the Registrant Directory to see who else is registered for the conference. This directory is available for attendees to request a meeting with other attendees either throughout the day or as a means to schedule a follow-up meeting.
If you need assistance, please email email@example.com or stop by the Registration Desk.
