As we continue to navigate the new normal, the discussion around virtual event engagement persists as a challenge that many event planners are facing today. With the sheer amount of virtual activities every person is putting up with currently, any additional webinar, conference, or online meeting can seem like a daunting task, rather than a reason for excitement. 

However, one thing people are craving is connection. Since most places still have harsh restrictions for in-person gatherings of any size, any opportunity to connect will likely be treasured. That’s why networking has become an even hotter topic in the world of virtual events.

The Attendease event management software has recently announced its newest feature to better support event planners in fostering networking and engagement for their virtual meetings and events. 

This is the first of a series of attendee networking features that will become available throughout the year on the platform and includes the ability for attendees to create their attendee profile and share it with other attendees in that same event so that they connect in multiple ways. The profile includes their photo, job title, company, social media profiles, and email address. Attendees can also search or browse other attendee profiles who have opted to have their profile public. New functionalities will be coming soon! 

How to make the most of virtual networking opportunities

Thinking about event design, it’s important to plan how the networking component of your event will connect with the entire event itself. Here are some tips to make the most of the virtual networking feature:

  • Make sure to communicate well ahead of the event how the networking portion will work, so attendees know what to expect.
  • Communicate multiple times – it’s easy to get emails lost in the inbox. 
  • Let attendees know how they can create their profile and how to have their profile public.
  • Share some templated messages they can use, as a sample that can save them time and give ideas on messages they could send.
  • Make time between sessions and remind people to go to the networking tab to connect with other attendees.
  • Suggest people connect with at least three other attendees each day to make their most of their event experience.
