CARILEC’s traditional Face to Face (F2F) Speed Networking sessions have provided members with tremendous value during our annual conferences over the last decade. This process provides a level of efficiency for utility leaders, by providing them with a platform to undertake an initial vetting and assessment of offerings which may fulfill their various commercial needs. These sessions have also afforded associate and affiliate members the opportunity to gain access to utility representatives throughout the region within a short space of time.
Virtual speed networking provides huge cost savings and reduces the need to travel all over the Caribbean region or internationally to individual business meetings. It has been echoed by many members that the speed-networking event is a significant Return on Investment (ROI) to their membership. Therefore, we understand the needs of our members for such an event, especially during these difficult economic times. During these sessions, Associate, Affiliate and IPP members take the opportunity to introduce their products, services, technologies, and methodologies during a 3-5-minute elevator speech.
