TECHNICAL TIPS:
Please review these technical tips to ensure a smooth experience.

NETWORKING AT THE SUMMIT:
There are two ways to easily connect with other attendees at the Summit.

THE PEOPLE TAB: You will find this located  in the right hand side bar, throughout all areas of the event. You can search for attendees and invite others to video chats here. Be sure to complete your Attendee profile so that others can easily find you! 
You may also use this section to:

  • Chat privately with other attendees – find the user and select “send message” button
  • Schedule a video meeting
  • Report a user in a case of inappropriate behavior.

More information on using the PEOPLE tab to connect with other attendees here.

SPEED NETWORKING: 
The Networking area is the place for automated one-on-one meetings and is Hopin’s way of facilitating connection discovery at an event.

  • In the networking segment – visible on the left hand side of the event window – when someone clicks the Ready button, the system automatically pairs you up with someone else who has also clicked the Ready button.
  • Matches are paired randomly (similar to speed dating).
  • If both parties are available, the two are matched instantly and the video chat begins and lasts for 30 seconds minimum, 180 seconds maximum.
  • During Hopin’s Networking segment, matched participants will have the opportunity to exchange contact information by clicking on the ‘Connect’ button.

While we have created times in the schedule specifically for Networking, that area will remain open throughout the event. 

NETWORKING FAQ’S:

Q: How do I network with specific people?

A: The Networking area is random, so you are not able to pick who you are paired with. However, you can create 1:1 meetings with whoever you like. By going to the ‘People’ tab of the event, find the person you would like to connect with and click the invite to video call button.

Q: How do I find my Networking connections after the event?

A: After the conversation (if both parties chose to connect) they can follow up with each other. At the end of the event a list and summary of connections will become available under the profile page in the Connections tab. Once a connection is selected each user can choose the way they want to follow up: Email; LInkedin; Twitter

Tip: The available channels depend on the details filled by attendees on their Profile page. Make sure to add the preferred details to your profile to let other connections easily find you after the event.

THE EXPO HALL:

This will be open throughout the Summit. We also have set aside times in the schedule each day for you to visit and interact with companies and organizations.

To enter, click on Expo, located on the left hand side bar of the event landing page.
