Speed networking is one of the traditional networking approaches, which gives the opportunity to the attendants of specific event to meet other attendants in a short amount of time in order to make new contact and expand their professional network. The participants have limited time between 60-90 seconds, in some events up to five minutes, to introduce themselves, to present briefly their businesses, business goals and visions and to exchange contact information. Once they hear bell ringing, which marks the end of the meeting session, the participants have to move on to the next person and repeat the same activity.
