How to Maximize Your One-on-One Business Appointment Experience

  • Register your team members;
  • Set up business discussion topics;
  • Share promotional materials;
  • Communicate with trading partners;
  • Select and prioritize meeting requests;
  • Block up to three time slots for private appointments;
  • View the conference attendee list and plan your time based on your strategic goals; and,
  • View, save and print your appointment schedule.

Important Dates to Remember

  • Open until April 29, 2021: Distributor conference coordinators enter table topics in PartnerLinx and assign table captains
  • May 3 to May 21, 2021: Conference coordinators and table/team captains select and rank appointment requests in PartnerLinx (three time slots may be blocked for private appointments)
  • Week of May 24, 2021: Schedules are generated
  • The week of May 31, 2021: Appointment schedules are made available in PartnerLinx

Note that your company's registration invoice(s) and HDA dues must be paid to receive your schedule.

All attendees must adhere to the 20-minute virtual appointment duration to ensure equal meeting time with trading partners. There will a ten-minute break between appointments. To take full advantage of each appointment, it is recommended you bring an agenda to help drive your discussions, come fully prepared and invite 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 manufacturer members with five or more attendees may have multiple teams participate in the one-on-one business appointments. Each team will have a unique team name or topic and will be available in PartnerLinx 2.0. The additional teams will be managed by HDA.
