IAGTO Connect is principally an online meetings event exclusive to IAGTO member companies and organizations around the world. In 2022 we will be focusing in particular on Asia, Oceania, the Indian Ocean, the Gulf States, South Africa and North Africa.
Three days of meetings will be combined with announcements, promotions, presentations and interviews on our TV News Channel and News Bulletin.
IAGTO Connect is a three-day event open for 22 hours on each of the first two days, allowing you to schedule your meetings at times convenient for you, wherever in the world you are located.
The good news is that your Appointments Diary will show your meeting time in your Local Time as well as the official event time which, for 2022, will be Thailand/Indochina Time (ICT) to highlight our focus on our Asian member destinations.
Of course, with the Appointment Diary being open 22 hours a day, you will be able to very easily block out all times that are not going to be convenient for you for meetings. It is entirely up to you when and on what days you accept and schedule meetings, and how many you have.
We use the Marcom eScheduled PRO platform for appointment scheduling which is the same that we have used for all of our in-person IAGTO Conventions for the past 10 years
You can register colleagues free of charge to share your meetings or substitute for you
Zoom is the video-conferencing system that we use within the virtual Marcom platform, giving you access to all Zoom functionality during your meetings
Standard meetings are 15-minutes with a 5-minute break between meetings, but you can of course simply keep talking if you need more time
