Global Hand European Conference - January, 2005

Global Hand European conference, Vienna, February 4th and 5th, 2005.

As part of Global Hand’s increasing presence in Europe, we will be meeting for a mini-conference, in Vienna, on February 4th and 5th, 2005.


Conference Agenda:

1. Introduction to Global Hand

This will, primarily, provide an introduction for people unfamiliar with Global Hand. As interest has grown about its service, this meeting was designed to give an opportunity to explain the site, services offered, questions about membership, etc.

2. European Application

Discussion will be held regarding ways Global Hand should develop its activities through the Austrian office and neighbouring areas. Topics will include the strategies considered most helpful, product most needed, partnering opportunities of greatest value, promotional activities and conferences or consultations of relevance, etc. Numbers will be kept limited in order to ensure input from all attendees.

In brief, the details are as follows.
