Prepare for Your One-on-One Business Appointments

One-on-one business appointments are scheduled by PartnerLinx® 2.0, HDA’s online business appointment scheduling system. The user-friendly system intelligently matches your preferences with available appointment requests and generates your team’s appointment schedule. Download these PartnerLinx Tips and User Guide for help navigating the system.

PartnerLinx is open for BLC 2024 coordinators and captains to select and rank appointment requests through April 26.

Launch PartnerLinx

All attendees must adhere to the 20-minute appointment duration to ensure equal meeting time with trading partners. There will be 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 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.

For more information, contact Entoria Nicely, Manager, Member Services.
