About the PYM LIVE format

The desire to network and make new connections is the No. 1 reason why people want to meet face-to-face. At PYM LIVE, we connect attendees and our exhibiting partners through a networking-centric conference app, interactive education and — most importantly — during the speed meetings that serve as our version of a trade show.

When you register, we let you tell us who you’re most interested in meeting and make sure you see them first. You also can request to be connected with sales reps before the show if you want more than a few minutes to speak with them. In this industry, however, you never know who you’ll need this year or next month, so we do build in time for you to meet everyone.

When we’re not beta-testing that tech, the planners stay seated and our exhibiting partners rotate. Want to know more about what we’re beta-testing and experimenting with? Read this Innovation Guide to our 2014 events.
