IEEE Networking Tips:Maximize Your Conference Experience
One advantage of attending a conference is the opportunity to network with others in your field. Follow these tips to get the most out of your next conference experience.
Tip #1: Before you leave for the conference, do some research about the speakers and other attendees. Make a list of those you’d most like to meet, and try to have a specific objective in mind that will help guide your conversations effectively. Better yet, reach out via e-mail to each person you’d like to meet to ask if they can set aside a few minutes.
Tip #2: At the conference, make sure you are available to meet up with your contacts during the times you’ve agreed on.
Tip #3: Be open to spontaneous connections. Circulate around the room during breaks and networking times. Remember—others are also trying to expand their networks.
Tip #4: Remember to bring business cards. A good practice is to keep a few cards in your wallet or phone case. Being prepared to make a connection makes a good first impression.
