In today’s increasingly competitive business world, establishing and maintaining a good relationship with business partners and clients are the key to success. But while the internet and mobile technology have definitely made it easier for companies to find potential business partners and stay engaged with their affiliates, nothing beats the old style of networking face-to-face.
