Curated Research Meetings

Your time is valuable, which is why we skip the usual “wandering the exhibition hall” and connect you directly to relevant solution providers.

Tell us about your current challenges during registration, and we’ll arrange meetings with a tailored set of solution providers who can help. It’s a simple, fun way to do solutions research in a relaxed, no-pressure environment.

The vendor discussions were of great value and the educational sessions were extremely well done. Superior to other events I’ve attended."
Global Program Manager, Caterpillar
I really appreciated this different type of venue and format, and the extra work toward personalization to make the most of the time invested. Everyone I interacted with at QN was super helpful and responsive."
Southwestern Electric Co, VP of Engineering
I was introduced to solution providers that I would not have otherwise found & found details that I would not have gotten from websites. It’s already generating further dialog about how we can work together in the future."
Blount International, Manager Engineering - Machine Design
