More than just 3 full days of conference and exhibition, the event offered numerous networking opportunities in informal settings as well. The Pre-Event Cocktail held at Equinox provided a chance for the Guests-of-Honour, Keynote Speakers and Foreign Delegation to mingle and share ideas and information. While the VIP Cocktail held at the poolside of Concorde Hotel allowed most participants that equal opportunity to do the same.

Delegates and visitors provided feedback that the event met their main objectives of finding out about technology developments, meeting potential suppliers and meeting technology developers, giving them more networking opportunities than expected.
