The “speed dating” event is an excellent opportunity for “first-timers” to make professional contacts at the very beginning of the Congress, as well as for regulars to learn new things about their old acquaintances and have a chance to make new AIJA friends. You will have 4 minutes (2 minutes each for you and your partner) to introduce yourself and your company to the person in front of you. After this time one of you will have to move to another table. A facilitator will keep an eye on the time and help you observe the rules.
