WHAT are the One-on-One Business Meetings?
This is where deals get done!  An integral part of HDAW, the One-on-One Business Meetings match distributors to the suppliers they want to meet with for private, focused business meetings off the Product Expo floor.

Participation in these extensive private meeting opportunities are limited to distributor companies and exhibiting suppliers who are members of a sponsoring or affiliated organization and are officially registered for HDAW '22.

WHEN are the One-on-One Business Meetings?
Meetings take place the morning of Wednesday, January 26 and all day Thursday, January 27.  They do not conflict with any Product Expo hours.  There are a total of 20 time slots (8 on Wednesday and 12 on Thursday) and each time slot is 35 minutes in length.

WHERE are the One-on-One Business Meetings?
The One-on-One Business Meetings will be held in the convention center area adjacent to the Product Expo floor and on the third floor meeting rooms of the convention center where education is held and meals are served.

Is there a COST for the One-on-One Business Meetings?
The One-on-One Business Meetings are complimentary for distributor companies to participate.  Suppliers must pay a fee for their private meeting space, where price varies depending on the size of the space.

The deadline to commit to participating in the One-on-One Business Meetings is Tuesday, November 30, 2021.
