Event Details

ALL TIMES LISTED ARE EASTERN

Meet the Consultants Coast to Coast will provide high-quality panel presentations and offer options for attendees to meet virtually in small groups and have discussions with site location consultants.  The SEDC staff have put an extensive amount of time and effort into identifying a platform that will meet attendees' networking and educational needs. We are pleased to announce that we will again be using the Lunchpool platform to bring you to this event. 

Attendees can video chat around virtual tables for face-to-face networking and move freely from table to table, just like in real life! You'll be able to view a list of attendees, and what table they are at to catch up with your SEDC colleagues and perhaps make new ones as you work around the tables. 

And you will be able to network with site location consultants too!  After each panel presentation, there will be 20 minutes of interaction with the panelists when they come out in the “audience” and sit at a table.  In addition to our sponsors, there will be a full hour of networking with site location consultants in our virtual lunch. The five panels will feature three consultants each, and we will have up to 20 consultants for the VIP virtual lunch with consultants and sponsors. 

Please take a look at the photo below and tell me that this isn't the coolest virtual platform you've seen since March!

This "show floor" will go away during the presentations and provide you with a more traditional experience with a live chat and Q&A. 
 

The Lunchpool platform works with all computers, laptops, phones, and tablets, so you will be able to take Meet the Consultants Coast to Coast anywhere you need to be. In the coming weeks, SEDC will be announcing more about how the Lunchpool platform will work for our event and the consultants that you will hear from and perhaps meet at one of the tables. If you have any questions about the event, registration, or anything SEDC related, please contact Matthew at the office. 

Thank you, and please consider attending Meet the Consultants Coast to Coast on June 15th. This year may be different, but it will still pack a wallop of content, consultants, and connections like only SEDC can muster.

Thank you, Sponsors!
