Networking Events

Networking is one of the main reasons why so many executives attend RHIC, opportunities are provided throughout the conference.


Our new contact system allows registered delegates to pre-arrange meetings before you even arrive at the conference, ensuring you make the most out of your valuable time.

The fast paced business card exchange is a popular ice breaker to begin the conference. Participate and it could be the fastest, most beneficial and enjoyable 60 minutes of networking you will ever do!

Grab every chance to expand your network - why not do that over a nice cup of coffee.

The exhibition is the heart of the conference, where meetings are arranged and deals are done.

Continue networking into the night, catch up with old friends and make new acquaintances.

Azimut Hotels are delighted to host the RHIC networking reception at the Azimut Moscow Olympic Hotel. A perfect opportunity to catch up with colleagues and new contacts, whilst enjoying fine wine and food in splendid surroundings.
