Pre plan your meetings

Networking is a huge part of Develop:Brighton and something we know is super important to all our attendees. So in addition to the many social networking events during the day and after hours, we offer an online networking tool - Meet@Develop powered by MeetToMatch - which all registered visitors can use before the event and onsite to contact each other and set up meetings in a meeting zone within the Develop Expo.

The Meet@Develop meeting zone is located within the main Expo hall.

The Expo is only open on Weds 10 and Thurs 11 July, but this year tables within the Meet@Develop zone are available to be booked on all three days of the event Tues 9, Weds 10 and Thurs 11 July.

If you'd like to use Meet@Develop then all you have to do is register for a Conference or Expo pass and then you will automatically be sent your login details nearer the time.

Meetings by choice, not chance.


What is Meet@Develop?

Meet@Develop will allow you to make your own connections with people and companies you are particularly interested in collaborating with – and others looking for people with your particular skills and experience will be able to reach out to you!

Meet@Develop uses the MeetToMatch meeting system that helps connect you to other Develop:Brighton attendees based on your needs.
With a calendar you can personalise, it's easy to set up and keep track of meetings and arrange your schedule.

At the event, Develop:Brighton provides the Meet@Develop meeting zone on the gallery of the Expo hall where your meetings will take place.

You can search for people or companies using keywords as well as take advantage of more advanced search options. Once you find someone you want to meet, you can check their availability and suggest a mutual meeting time.
A meeting table will be automatically assigned to you in the Meet@Develop meeting zone or if all the tables are booked at that time there is a Meet@Develop Meeting Point just outside the Expo where you can you can meet up and then find your own meeting location.

Where can we meet?

There is an area within the Expo reserved for meetings, this area is called Meet@Develop. The MeetToMatch system will automatically allocate you to one of the available tables.

Can I meet people in other places?

You are welcome to meet anywhere inside or outside of the venue and there is an option within the meeting system to let you propose your own meeting location. Keep in mind, however, that if you take your meeting away from the venue it could impact the time you have to get to talks and other meetings. 

Also, the Meet@Develop area is set up to facilitate great meetings - with 50 tables that seat up to 4 people in a quiet area off the Expo floor, with water and a hostess to help with any queries.

How do I change the time/location of my meeting?

Go to the meeting details by clicking the ‘confirmed meetings’ button on your dashboard or by clicking the meeting in your schedule. Then use the ‘reschedule’ button to reschedule the meeting to a different date/time/location or to transfer the meeting to a colleague.

How do I contact the person I'm meeting?

Once a meeting is confirmed you will be able to see the other person's email address.
If they have provided additional contact information, such as a phone number, you will be able to see this as well.
