Saying goodbye at conferences

Most of us will have to attend a business conference at some time in our lives and for some it is a regular occurrence.

Conferences are a great opportunity to meet business associates and make new contacts. Knowing how to greet people and say goodbye in a correct and appropriate way is important but often difficult to do for many non-native English speakers.
