From AGM's to working group meetings to full scale conferences and workshops, EFD plays host to a range of networking events.  We know how important events are for facilitating social and business opportunities - both locally and internationally.

In addition to structured meetings, we have a range of networking rooms, areas and cafes located on the exhibition floor for informal meetings and business discussions.
