To make the most of your time ‘onsite,’ take some time before the conference begins to play around in the event platform. Find out how to access sessions, check your audio, and work out any glitches.
Treat a virtual conference as you would an in-person conference with respect to your calendar and task load. Prioritize the time to be truly present in the experience, engage with the sessions and presenters, and use the chat and other networking tools regularly to connect with other attendees.
Choose the conference sessions and topics that relate to what you want to learn right now and make a note of people you would like to meet and booths you would like to visit. Presentations will be made available after the event for you to revisit, however, the people you would like to meet may not be as assessable, so do not worry if conversations or meetings run over.
Within the Lobby area you can see everyone that is attending the conference. You can use the message function to make contact and arrange a time to meet at one of the tables available in the Lounge, or simply dive straight into the Lounge area and join a table for instant networking.
When you are attending an event alone, it is easy to “multi-task” and get distracted. Instead, try to reduce notifications, grab a notepad, and get ready to start learning and take full advantage of this huge networking opportunity!<< Back to Meet the Members Home Page
