As events across the globe fell under the weight of the pandemic’s social distancing restrictions, virtual conferences have risen to take their place. But how can you achieve the benefits and networking opportunities you’d normally get from in-person attendance? Experts say there are several ways to maximise your time:

  • Prepare ahead: Research keynote speakers, attendees, and exhibitors and curate your interactions.
  • Use the tech: Chat boxes allow you to share insights, ask questions and initiate one-on-one networking conversations.
  • Minimise distractions: Turn off your mobile and minimise your email.
