Networking isn't effective if the right people aren't meeting. And handing out business cards in a crowded convention center is hardly enough to make meaningful connections or build business relationships. Traditionally, cocktail mixers and coffee breaks were the norm for "great networking opportunities." However, times have changed as these traditional events are not often producing meaningful, mutually beneficial connections.

“The NATM Convention is in its’ 29th year. To keep up with the needs of our members, which are trailer manufacturers and suppliers, we offer opportunities for networking and business improvement. This year, we offered “Speed Networking” at our annual Convention in Las Vegas, and the response was outstanding. Trailer Manufacturers were able to meet briefly with up to eight suppliers (of their choosing) within an hour, in one location. The event allowed both manufacturers and suppliers the chance to connect briefly and set up future meetings if necessary. Speed Networking is a time saver and a great communication tool for our members.
We plan to host the event again in 2017 at our Orlando, Florida convention.”
