Follow Up: Networking and 1-on-1 Matchmaker Pitch sessions at ACCESS 2017 are a wonderful way to begin the relationship with a company (Buying Entities and MBEs). Make it a point to follow up with your contact immediately. Make it a point to either remind them where and how you met them or tell them briefly something about your company that you did not get to say during your networking session. Be memorable! And... then be patiently persistent.
