Speed Networking


Have you ever wanted to the opportunity to meet with more airlines and ground handlers at a GHI event, but busy schedules got in the way?

Boost your access to key airlines and handlers and make the most efficient use of your time by registering for GHI's new virtual Speed Networking forums.

The forums are designed to provide you with additional, high quality networking with delegates, whose schedules make it impossible for them to accept all the formal One-to-One Meeting invites they receive pre-event. Once the introductions have been made, this opens the door to more in-depth discussions.

Sign up for speed networking on your personal page and you will have the chance to request quick-fire introductory slots with up to five carriers and five handlers. Simply select who you would like to network with and let us do the rest.

Fancy taking part? Register your interest as a participant by emailing alice@groundhandling.com and be the first to receive access to sign up when it opens.


Why take part?

  • GHI's speed networking forums will boost your networking opportunities with attending airlines and handlers whose busy One-to-One Meeting schedules prevent them accepting meeting invites using our traditional One-to-One planner.
  • Make an acquaintance - introduce yourself or business and exchange details.
  • Time efficient: meet up to five airlines / handlers in just 25 minutes.
  • All the efficiency of in-person speed networking events brought to your screen virtually.

How will it work?

The virtual speed networking forums will take place over two days of the Digital Reconnect.

You will have the opportunity to bid for meetings with a maximum of five attending airlines/ground handler as part of your pre-event sign up. Meetings will last 5 minutes. Your final schedule will be confirmed by the GHI team in advance two weeks prior to the start of the conference. Your access to the speed networking platform will be added to your personal meeting schedule.

Once all delegates have arrived in the virtual check-in room, the speed networking can begin! The GHI team will move you into private virtual rooms where your meetings will begin. The host will rotate participants enabling you to meet a new delegate every 10 minutes.

The GHI team will be able to assist you and will be there for you for the duration of the virtual event to answer any questions. It’s traditional speed networking events with a virtual twist!
