Event description

Description

We cordially invite You to register for B2B Contact Fair. Meeting such high-achieving business people and innovators face to face has never been so easy. Each visitor of Innovation Drift can register for B2B Contact Fair where they can meet and talk with a selected mentor.

Here we present the mentors of Contact Fair: in addition to delivering a general speech to all visitors, each of them will be able to give some visitor-specific advice or share practical insights by meeting them individually.

The possibility of a face-to-face dialogue will not only offer individual advice but will also be a chance to start partnerships that may help achieve new highs.
