Connect registration can be added to your Summit ticket or you can register to only attend SPLC Connect independent of the Summit. The matchmaking platform will launch by March and all pre-registered attendees will be invited via email to create a profile to begin the matchmaking process.


IMPORTANT: The SPLC Summit Planning Committee staff reviews all Connect attendees to ensure all attendees are a good fit for the event and the correct role has been selected. Suppliers are selected to participate when their products and services offer superior environmental, social, and/or economic responsibility and when those solutions align with needs expressed by registering buyers. Summit Planning Committee approval is a requirement for SPLC members as well as non-members. Please do not book travel to attend Connect until your participation has been approved, which can take up to two weeks depending on the committee meeting schedule.
