At the WAN Summit we know that you want as much information into new products & services as quickly as possible. That is why we will be holding the first WAN Booth Sprint on Day One of the conference. While there is no running involved, it will allow you to listen to the latest offerings of 10 different companies in just one hour, without having to book a meeting, share your details or even having to take the first step. AND you’ll get to enter the WAN Summit prize draw.

How to participate as visitor:

  • Pick up a stamp pass from the registration desk.

  • Be in the exhibition area at the start of the session.

  • When the bell sounds pick an exhibitor booth and enjoy a quick & concise 5-minute product pitch. No strings attached.

  • When the next bell sounds, collect your stamp and move on the next booth.

  • The next pitch will start with the bell.

  • Repeat.

  • Once you have collected your 10 stamps, fill out your information on the back of the card and return it to enter the prize draw.

  • If you enjoyed a pitch, you can always return to the booth later for a more detailed discussion.
