AIEN 2022 International Energy Summit

Networking Opportunities

Speed Networking Event
Tuesday, September 27 • Hilton on Park Lane Hotel

Face-to-face networking is a powerful & necessary tool for one’s career. Whether you are new to the industry or a seasoned negotiator, AIEN understands the value that networking has in enhancing your career. The AIEN International Energy Summit is the perfect forum to maximize your networking opportunities, especially through this offering available to all attendees - a speed networking event. This structured and fast-paced event will be held before the conference this year so that you can build upon your connections throughout the event. 

Speed networking is similar to speed dating, but in a business environment, where participants will have exposure to many people in a short amount of time. You will have the chance to meet with another fellow attendee in a one-on-one, five-minute information exchange, moving on to the next five-minute exchange with another attendee, and so on. During each round, you should introduce yourself, mentioning where you are located, what your professional title is and what your main job responsibilities are. At the halfway point of each round, it’s then the second individual’s turn to speak. The number of rounds you will go through will depend on the number of those who sign-up but you should expect to have between 6-10 one-on-one meetings. The event will conclude with a cocktail reception, allowing time for open, unstructured networking. Participants can use this time to speak with those they did not have a chance to speak with or to seek out those who they would like to continue the conversation with. 

All Summit attendees are invited to participate in this not-to-be-missed event, no matter your registration type! In an effort to streamline the onsite registration process for participants, this year the event will be limited to 80 people and will be on a first-come, first-served basis with no pre-registration required.

Breakfasts, Lunches, Networking Breaks

Delegates are invited to join fellow attendees in the networking areas for breakfasts, lunches and coffee breaks. These scheduled networking times are ideal for idea sharing, meeting colleagues and making new contacts. Start your day off each morning at the continental breakfast and talk to others about what’s to come for that day. Use your time at the coffee breaks to meander the foyer area and view the exhibitor tables. Take part in networking time while enjoying a bite to eat at the conference luncheons taking place on Wednesday and Thursday.
