Networking opportunities

As an extension to our Exhibitor Care Programme, participating organisations are given the opportunity to meet and connect with VIP guests through our Exhibitor VIP Programme when you exhibit with us. 

A large proportion of military and VIP attendees visit UDT annually, and partake in our VIP Programme which includes the offsite UDT networking evening. Always a memorable affair, which brings together exhibitors, speakers, and VIPs the event takes place offsite at a secret location in the host city. In order to join, don’t forget to add your ticket during registration. 

To add greater value to exhibitors and visitors alike, we also launched MeetMe, an enhanced meeting request service that helps one arrange meetings with other event attendees before and during the event.

Meaningful meetings | Powerful connections

With a combination of new and traditional markets represented in equal measure, our VIP engagement team work directly with exhibitors. As part of the Exhibitor VIP Programme, we create relevant and balanced programmes for each delegation. Our Customer Experience team will engage with you directly to better understand your engagement objectives during the show.

This helps to ensure suppliers of appropriate products and services are matched with relevant customers.
