Virtual speed dating provides a unique opportunity to join companies together for a common purpose - to create teams with the right partners. Three sessions offering 15 minutes with 10 potential partners to exchange information, share your value and knowledge, and ask for advice and recommendations. This is more than social networking; it’s business networking in a focused environment. Breakout rooms will be hosted by the following companies, with three or four participating during each 15-minute session:

SESSION 1: 4:15 – 4:30 p.m.
• CHA Consulting, Inc.
• Gensler
• Jacobs
• Woolpert, Inc. / Jviation

SESSION 2: 4:30 – 4:45 p.m.
• C&S Companies
• DRP Construction
• Mead & Hunt, Inc.

SESSION 3: 4:45 – 5:00 p.m.
• HNTB
• Kimley-Horn and Associates, Inc.
• Whiting-Turner Contracting Company

This year in the virtual world, our layout will be different than the events you are used to in the past:

• There will be 3 time slots, each 15-20 minutes.
• There will be 3-4 host firms leading a virtual networking room concurrently in each of the 3 time slots.
• Attendees choose one company for each of the 3 slots to visit with.
• Each host company will run their meeting room, give an overview of their firm, and have open Q&A for participants.
• No RSVPs are required for participants, so there could be between 1 to 20 or more in a room.
• Cameras and microphones on!
