GPHA Vendor Speed Networking |Business Connections, One Table at a Time

Vendor Speed Networking works a lot like 'Speed Dating' without the 'Dating'. It is a defined opportunity to meet hotel industry professionals face to face, in a structured format. This event offers members the perfect occasion to connect to all participants and to expand your business, social or enterprise contacts – 3 minutes at a time. 

This is our 7th year putting on this event, previously known as the Power Meetings & Business Opportunity event and we have decided to change up the format of the event. The committee, made up of hotel and allied members, have decided that this year, hoteliers will be seated at the tables and vendors will move from hotelier to hotelier every 3 minutes.


We have also added a Vendor Speed Networking with the Airport Hotel Members for 2020; date TBD. There will be no additional cost to participate if you attended the March Vendor Speed Networking event. Two events for the price of one!


We feel building business relationships should be a comfortable, sophisticated and relaxed venture. An opportunity to create opportunities.


How it works

Simply register online, download and return your completed registration form, or select the Events tab on GPHA’s homepage for a listing of our events and you are all set! You will be sent a confirmation from us and your name will be noted on our Registration List. Any questions, please contact Sue Geyer by email at sgeyer@gpha.us or call the GPHA office at 215.557.1900.

On the registration page each vendor will select three (3) hotel executives that you are interested in meeting. A personal meeting schedule is then drawn up for you and sent to you the week prior to the event. You will receive a hard copy of the schedule which will include information of all participants at the registration desk.


Our host accommodates seating for four people at each table - two hoteliers and up to two representatives from a participating company. Vendor representatives will move together and only two representatives per company can participate in the event.

You also have the option of exchanging business cards and bringing a giveaway item for each hotelier you meet, should you feel so inclined.

When you arrive please check in with our host at the registration desk. After being shown to your table you will rotate from hotelier table to hotelier table in a comfortable and inviting setting every 3 minutes. We would like to RESPECT others’ time with hoteliers and not have anyone go over the 3 minute allotted time. There will be time at the end of the event for more networking.

Once the Speed Networking has completed and all participants have had the opportunity to meet each other - you are welcome to stay and mingle.
