The official meetings platform for the CIPD Festival of Work 2019

Fill your agenda with pre-arranged meetings with attendees you would like to meet

CIPD Festival of Work is enhancing the attendees’ show experience by launching a meetings programme for all visitors and exhibitors of the event.

Festival Connect is a free of charge networking feature that allows users to search through hundreds of CIPD Festival of Work’s contacts and book 1-2-1 meetings in advance. 

Once registered, attendees will be able to log into our Festival Connect portal, build a personal profile, browse contacts by sectors and interests and request meetings to fill their schedule with meetings prior to the event.

Meetings will be held in the dedicated Festival Connect Lounge. This feature will be hosted by a team of matchmaking experts who will be offering support leading up to the show and will also be based in the Festival Connect Lounge during the event to assist with the matchmaking and introduce meeting partners.

You can access the portal now and gain access to your Festival Connect profile.
