Notification for SAIS 2020

Networking is a key part of any event and we have made sure that virtual networking is even easier and better. However, there is one thing to note. Networking happens on both the web app and the mobile app via the “M&I” button (Match&Invest). Here you will find full profiles of attendees, suggested meetings for you and the place to have a virtual meeting call. You can use the “M&I” function on the mobile app as well. Under the “attendees” button, you only use it to browse attendee profiles with a glance. Do you have questions?  

Meet and message on M&I for meaningful connections.

M&I is an online platform that makes finding who you need easy. It matches your need with offers from the audience. Easy!

For the 2020 Virtual 365 Edition all premium registered attendees will not only get access to the business matching and networking area during the event, but also year-long access to the business matching and networking in the online SAIS Community platform.
