SustainabilityLive! Network before you get there
Modern technology is a wonderful thing. If you're going to SustainabilityLive! next month, for example, chances are one of your goals is to make new business contacts and network with others active in your field.
While you can't beat the human touch and there's nothing quite like a face-to-face conversation, there is something a *bit* like it...
Here on edie live, you can set up a profile like you would on a social networking site then blog, start discussion threads, message potential contacts and browse other people's profiles.
We've set up a series of user groups to help put you in touch with those who share your professional interestes. Once you've set up a profile, you can join these by clicking on Groups in the green nav bar at the top of the page. There's a general one for SustainabilityLive!, then special interest groups for each of the shows - water & wasterwater for IWEX and energy & carbon for NEMEx, for example.
