Speed meetings are a type of sponsorship where industry vendors sponsor a conference attendee's cost of attending the conference in exchange for face-to-face time with the attendee at the conference.
Speed meetings are a voluntary program created by the AAOE in 2018 to help defray the cost of attendance to the Annual Conference. Participants apply and are selected based on the demographics the vendors are seeking to host (i.e. practice size, product the attendee is in the market for, etc.). Once selected, attendees are asked to schedule meetings with the vendors to take place in a designated time slot during the annual conference.
