Each slot lasts for just 5 minutes. Keep to the time limit to make sure you meet as many of your key targets as possible. 

7. Set up a meeting


Arrange a time outside of the session to continue your conversations and discuss business opportunities further.

Follow up

Post-event, make time to follow up with airlines you have met on the day via email or a phone call when you return home after the event, but don’t leave it more than a week or two.
