You will be aware that developing a strong worldwide network of agents can, if not carefully thought out, require vast expenditure both in time and money travelling the world to meet and consolidate relationships with your partners.
All the members in one place at one time
During the annual meeting every CQR member comes together in one place at one time, thus saving substantial absences from the office as well as considerable travel expenses. Instead of travelling to country after country and city after city to meet the same amount of people and exchange the same amount of business, you travel to just one.
Forge lasting relationships
Conqueror's annual meeting is the time when you can promote your business on an international platform, do deals and as one of our 2012 delegates put it, 'forge lasting relationships'. Our annual meetings are, without doubt, the biggest benefit you can take advantage of as a Conqueror member, which is why it is of the upmost importance that all members attend.
You will have two days of one-to-one meetings, which you will be able to book yourself via the one-to-one online scheduler.
As well as the more formal settings, there will be many opportunities in more relaxed surroundings to have conversations with other members.
Whether it's having a cocktail, enjoying lunch or drinking a coffee between meetings, there will be countless opportunities to build relationships and do business!
The next Annual Conqueror Meeting
It will provide plenty of opportunities to build such relationships, key to the success of any business. After all, if given the choice, we would all choose to do business with those we know and trust the most.

A big thank you for the fantastic event you put together for us. The food, the hotel, the presentations,... it was a fabulous experience for me as a newcomer. It exceeded my expectations, making some terrific connections and many networking contacts for future events.
The networking opportunities were invaluable!
I look forward to working with many of the group members that I met.

The Meeting was really good and we were able to get close with some agents and are thinking of doing some business with them in the near future. We thank the CQR team for making this conference a great success.
Many thanks again for the organization of the annual meeting. Once again it was a successful annual meeting and felt like ‘coming home;’ with all the partners we are already doing business with, as well as getting to know the new members.
The quality of the companies attending was high and the agents were very positive in their approach for future business and mutual cooperation.

I had a great time in Bangkok and it has certainly added value to my knowledge and understanding of this trade. I think Conqueror has given us a good platform to start and continue doing business with our CQR partners. Keep up your good work and I am looking forward to seeing you all in 2014.

This was the first freight forwarders conference that I have attended and I was most impressed with the professional way in which you and your team organised the event. The synchronisation of the entire programme was flawless.
Melbourne , Australia
I thought the meeting was very well organised and again it was great to see friends and meet new agents. I think the main strength of the meeting was that 90% of the agents were the same as last year, which is great for continuity as it usually takes a couple of years to build solid relationships. Conqueror’s vigorous selection process also helped, meaning all the agents in attendance were high quality partners.
