Our Purpose

Our goal is to maximise the number of quality connections that our exhibitors and visitors gain from this one-day business expo. That’s why we have developed the HBS 2021 App which functions as a social network and one-stop-shop to the expo. Simply sign up manually or securely use your public information from LinkedIn and browse other attendees, request to add individuals of interest, send direct messages, arrange appointments in our designated ‘Meet Me’ zone at #HBS23, keep up to date with speaker announcements, locate stands with the interactive floor plan, download event materials and much more!
