Director of Marketing, Switch:

‘The overall experience of working with the VIP manager was good and overall positive feedback from the lunch.’

Senior Director, Hyperscale Engineering / Service Provider Business, Hewlett Packard Enterprise:

‘The HPE Lunch was very well attended - all seats full. The session was interactive with good Q&A. I believe this was absolutely an event activity that should be employed again.’

UK & I Data center & Cloud Lead, Juniper Networks

‘This worked well and the feedback we’ve had was very successful. DCD were very supportive with getting the right people to the session.’


For those sponsors that decide to use DCD’s VIP private meeting service, our dedicated VIP Manager will work with you in the run up to the event to source attendees from companies you wish to meet with. We work hard to organise pre-arranged 1-on-1 meetings with your target delegates and drive extra traffic to your stand by organising ad hoc introductions during the conference.

Meetings are 10–15 minutes conversations that can take place either in the privacy of your stand or in the intimate setting of our exclusive VIP and Speaker Lounge.

The 1-2-1 Meeting Programme is fully available to Headline, Principal and Lead Sponsors.

Here is just some of the excellent feedback we have received from past sponsors:

Director Sales and Service EMEA, Eaton

‘We are very happy and many thanks. Good communications and follow up. High attendance rate and some good meetings which will lead to new business.’

Marketing Executive, Vertiv

‘The VIP meetings were very productive and beneficial. Having the chance to meet with accounts that we have been trying to get hold of for a while.’

In addition, the VIP team has launched bespoke speed networking. Taking place in the mid-morning break Speed Networking is a series of short, dynamic introductions that enable you to meet with potential buyers looking for the solutions you are providing. This new feature will enable you to hone in on new leads, which can then be converted to in-depth meetings later in the day.

By taking part in this session you could meet up to 15 new business contacts as you move tables, swap business cards and chat to potential buyers.

Both exhibitors and end users alike have enjoyed and commended DCD’s Speed Networking sessions:
