  • Space is limited to 30 people.

  • You will be given a sheet to keep track of the people you met.
  • Each guest will be identified by their first name and a unique code. The sheets with the names and codes of those you want to keep in contact with will be handed into the host at the end of the event.
  • Personal information is exchanged only if both parties want to be in contact.
