Networking Opportunities

BIMS offers unparalleled networking connections throughout the event to help you make a deal, find a new partner and learn from peers!

Speed Networking

Speed Networking introduces you to other attendees with 3-minute meetings. Join our dialogues to meet new people and get a quick taste of the challenges and solutions facing other leaders. It’s fast-paced, revealing … and fun!

Welcome Reception & Dinner

Catch up with old friends and meet new colleagues as you enjoy great food and drink. The welcome reception precedes an al fresco dinner on the beach.


Our interactive roundtables connect solution providers with attendees. Select from a range of facilitated roundtables that focus on a choice of timely topics. You’ll meet peers who share your same interests and you’ll be able to swap ideas and war stories on the topics that matter most to your business. 

Meet with Sponsors

Meet all of the BIMS sponsors throughout the entire Summit, or schedule a meeting with them. Contact the sponsor directly or contact Heather Cejovic to connect you with a specific sponsor to reserve a meeting time.

Tuesday Reception

Enjoy the last evening together with fellow attendees for a twilight reception overlooking the ocean. Use this time to connect and make dinner plans for the evening. 

Tuesday Dutch Treat Dinner

Join fellow attendees for a casual Dutch Treat Dinner on Tuesday night at Sea Level Restaurant (at the Marriott). More details will be provided closer to the event.

Fun Runs

Join SIIA president, Ken Wasch, for a fun 3-mile loop along the ocean-side path. He makes it fun and challenging--and be sure to be ready for a sweaty picture! To participate, meet the group in the hotel lobby Tuesday, Nov. 14 and Wednesday, Nov. 15 at 6:00 a.m. 

Breakfast, Breaks & Lunch

Throughout the Summit there are plenty of networking opportunities to connect with other thought leaders between sessions and workshops.
