IAAF meeting scheduled for June

Published:  08 May, 2014

The IAAF has announced its second networking morning is to take place on 4th June at FPS in Sheffield.

The industry body's first breakfast time network meeting was held at First Line in Banbury and was considered very successful. All 30 places at the morning were taken, with attendees able to discuss industry matters in an informal environment. After this, the IAAF announced plans to hold events in the north and south of the country, allowing more of its members to take part.

The meeting will again feature a presentation by guest speaker Adam Petford on the opportunities provided by social media, in particular LinkedIn, using it to make new contacts and provide sales and marketing opportunities.

Wendy Williamson, IAAF chief executive, said: "These network meetings provide members with a great opportunity to see first hand the efforts the IAAF is going to every day to protect, secure and promote the independent aftermarket and, at the same time, gain an insight into using LinkedIn to best effect. Demand for places is expected to be high, so we urge all members not to miss out and sign up to attend as soon as possible."
