All attendees must adhere to the 20-minute appointment duration to ensure equal meeting time with trading partners. There will a five-minute break between appointments to allow for travel time. To take full advantage of each appointment, it is recommended you bring an agenda to help drive your discussions, come fully prepared and bring the right people. In the event that you are unable to keep an appointment, as a courtesy to your trading partner, contact that person so that he or she can effectively use the open appointment time.

HDA’s manufacturer members may have multiple teams participating in the one-on-one business appointments based on the number of registrants from the company.  Each team will have a unique team name or topic and will be available in PartnerLinx 2.0.
