Speed Networking

Back by popular demand! Designed to give attendees the opportunity to meet a large number of people within a limited amount of time, Speed Networking sessions eliminate those sometimes awkward or extra effort introductions in a conference setting.

Participants will interact with a fellow attendee for three to five minutes, then rotate to the next person. During each rotation, attendees will discuss their networking goals to determine whether their interests align, and if they do, then participants can exchange contact information and arrange a time to meet for a more in-depth conversation.

Speed Networking supports building business relationships and identifying potential opportunities for cooperation. Additionally, these breaks offer a forum for job seekers or potential candidates.


Monday, May 4, 10:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. & 4:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. | Tuesday, May 5, 10:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. & 3:45 p.m. – 4:15 p.m. | Wednesday, May 6, 11:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.

Chapter and Regional Networking Lunch

Monday, May 4, 12:45 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.

In an effort to cultivate local relationships, ACMP has developed the ACMP Chapter and Regional Networking Lunch. This event allows attendees to interact with fellow practitioners and make connections with people in their local area.

Dine Around

Monday, May 4, 7:00 p.m.

Enjoy a special evening of exploring Anaheim while interacting with fellow attendees during ACMP's special Dine Around event.

Dine Around provides mini networking opportunities, as each event has a different focus area relevant to change management. In addition, each event is coordinated or hosted by ACMP Chapters, Committees and sponsors, giving attendees a chance to engage with new people in a more causal environment because each Dine Around is held at restaurants in or near the Anaheim Marriott.


  • This is a non-sponsored and non-hosted event. Each participant is responsible for their own food and drinks.
  • Participation in the Dine Around event is not covered by your ACMP Conference Registration fees.

Dine Around registration information COMING SOON!
