LOS ANGELES – XBIZ LA attendees kicked off their first day at the event with an hour and a half session of rapid-fire schmoozing during the Video Secrets-sponsored Speed Networking event.

More than 60 guests filled the meeting room of the Sofitel Hotel while half of them circulated around the U-shaped setup exchanging business cards and as much information about their company offerings in two-minute increments.

SafeNames.net’s Steve Miholovich sifted through the stack of business cards he gathered during the event as he told XBIZ that there were a number of industry professionals he would definitely be following up with and several others that were potentials.

“It’s a close-knit industry and it’s important to get to meet them face-to-face,” Miholovich said. “Even though it’s a little hectic, it’s great to have them as a captive audience and it gives you enough time to determine whether there’s a possible business opportunity.”

SafeNames.net is a global domain registrar that offers international brand protection.

Another participant Jon Waterman, CEO of Findology Interactive Media told XBIZ that Speed Networking is by far the best part of XBIZ LA.

“This industry was built on networking,” he said, “and today I met a lot of people offering several diversified products and services.”

Other Speed Networking attendees included Stockroom.com affiliate manager Monica Jean, TopBuck’s Kim Kyser and Iron Crosss CEO Evan Seinfeld, who recently launched multimedia management agency Sinnergy.

Another round of Speed Networking is set for tomorrow from 10-11:30 a.m. with registration for the event beginning at 9 a.m.
