Exchange Delegates

You are here

As a strictly senior level, invitation-only meeting, Exchange promises an intensive learning and networking experience like no other. In just a few days out of the office you will gain thought-provoking insight, practical solutions and quality time with top level contacts from the brands and solution provider companies you want to meet.

Why choose Exchange?

Invitation-only attendance

Access to an Exchange is not available to all. Exchange delegates are handpicked based on their ability to contribute at a strategic level, creating the ideal environment for idea generation.
CXOs, VPs and Directors attend Exchanges from the world's most respected organisations, allowing you to benchmark against the best in the industry and build your network of contacts to support your business demands, now and for years to come.

Unlike other events, the strict screening process for both delegates and sponsors ensures:

  • You are guaranteed to meet and engage with the most senior decision makers in your industry, resulting in genuine peer-to-peer networking with executives who are grappling with the same issues as you
  • You will learn from those sitting next to you, not just those on the stage; everyone has something to contribute
  • You will engage with the most sought after technology and service providers to discuss your current business requirements, saving you time and money when making investment decisions

Who Qualifies To Attend?

Delegate attendance is restricted to practitioners. Solution providers can only attend as sponsor partners.

Every attendee must have an active project within their function, and must meet certain qualification criteria in order to gain an invitation, such as:

  • My company's annual turnover is $1 billion or above
  • I sit in the C-suite or report directly to the C-suite
  • I control or directly influence where budget is spent
  • I control or directly influence strategy at regional, divisional or group level
  • I have a personal budget of $1 million or above for solutions or services to help me achieve strategic business objectives

This screening process means you only engage with senior executives you can relate to, with similar challenges, and who can help improve your business by sharing their experiences.

Interactive learning and networking

Interactive Learning

The unique Exchange format provides you with a productive learning and networking experience. Make no mistake, these events are intense, but highly rewarding. The interactive nature of an Exchange creates animated discussion and debate, bringing you closer to reaching your organisational goals, and answering your specific challenges.

Keynote briefings, best practice case studies and the Exchange's signature BrainWeaves®  and Think Tanks ensure a mutual 'exchange' of information amongst the who's who of your industry, allowing you to develop and benchmark strategies that will improve business performance.

Unparalleled Networking

Not all networking is created equal. Exchange provides one-to-one and group networking sessions for individuals with common interests, goals and challenges. Share experiences with respected industry practitioners and generate ideas that will help shape future trends.
Dedicated networking offers you the opportunity to build and maintain relationships with senior executives that last well beyond the event itself. Foster a network of contacts at an Exchange that will add value to your career now and in the future.

Industry leading content and speakers

An Exchange is a place where great new ideas are born and the foundation for new industry developments is formed.

Nine months of in-depth market research, combined with insight from industry specific Advisory Councils and leading analyst firms creates content that will keep you ahead of the curve, give you the edge in the boardroom and eliminate costly 'trial and error' developments of your own.

We know your time is valuable, so only those with extensive knowledge and experience, and the ability to engage and inspire the VIP Exchange audience are selected to join the speaker faculties. You can rest assured that every minute at an Exchange will be time well spent, learning from the very best in the business.

Market leading solution providers

Exchange simplifies the process of sourcing new solutions, previewing emerging technologies and benchmarking current providers by connecting you with relevant and qualified suppliers.
Through a series of private business meetings with the most sought after technology and service providers in your industry, you will reduce the time and money you spend on selecting new partners, forge relationships for future projects and enable better investment decision-making:

  • When you register, you will be asked to identify the solutions and services you are currently considering, so we can invite experts to the Exchange who will meet your business needs
  • Prior to the Exchange, you will assess attending solution providers and select 6-8 who offer products and services that match your strategic priorities. Your selections are then incorporated into your customised agenda
  • On-site, 30 minute one-to-one meetings give you the opportunity to hear from leading specialists who have reviewed your priorities, enabling them to present an offering that meets your specific requirements. All solution providers are carefully briefed to ensure they add value to your business and provide a tailored solution, not a generic sales pitch

A relaxed business environment

The meetings at an Exchange provide a productive yet relaxed environment in which to conduct business conversations:

  • Just like delegates of an Exchange, solution provider companies will only send senior representatives, meaning you will often meet with CEOs and VPs who can talk to you about the industry as a whole and the problems you are facing
  • Tailor your meeting schedule by selecting the solution providers who can help with your most pressing challenges
  • Both parties review each other's profiles in advance, resulting in an efficient and valuable use of your time

Personalised itinerary

At an Exchange you are in the driver's seat. The ability to tailor your Exchange programme ensures that every moment on-site reflects your needs and interests.

You will build your own agenda by choosing from a selection of:

  • Peer-to-peer learning opportunities
  • BrainWeave® or Think Tank discussions
  • One-to-one meetings with solution providers
  • Networking opportunities with an exclusive group

Your selections will translate into a unique itinerary that addresses the issues that are of the utmost urgency and strategic importance to you and your business right now.

This flexible format ensures that every case study, every business meeting and every networking session provides you with the business intelligence you need to drive dramatic improvements in corporate performance. Our delegates often tell us that it makes the difference between success and failure in their next big project!

Countdown to an Exchange

As the date of the Exchange approaches, here is how your personal Exchange itinerary will unfold:

  • 3-4 weeks before the Exchange: The online meeting scheduler is made available to all Exchange delegates. As a participant, you are provided with an individual password allowing you to sign in and select the learning sessions you would like to attend and the solution providers you would like to meet. This generates your unique itinerary based on your personal business priorities.
  • 1 week before the Exchange: You receive a copy of your complete itinerary, detailing your Exchange schedule from the moment you arrive through to departure.
  • At the Exchange: You will be greeted by the Exchange team and given your customised itinerary and Exchange information pack. This is when you truly begin reaping the rewards of your personalised on-site experience, where every session, networking function and meeting is tied directly to your priorities and requirements. We're always on hand to make sure you stay on track and gain the most value from your time out of the office.
