Entertainment, Networking, and Social Events

In addition to education and learning, some of the biggest benefits to attending any conference is the networking, entertainment and fun, and social events. Take advantage of the time you’re around so many like-minded professionals and set a goal for yourself to meet a few new people. Here are some tips:

  • The virtual conference platform will be available at least two days in advance of the Summit. You can explore the site and find out who is attending the conference before it starts. You can also explore who’s posting about attending the summit on LinkedIn, follow the Summit account on Twitter, or on Slack.
  • Figure out which companies will have people attending the conference – either as speakers, attendees, or exhibitors in the Virtual Expo Hall. If you see a job post for one of these companies that you’d like to know more about, you can talk to some of their employees at the event.
  • Make a list of a few people you would like to meet and write down some questions for them. You will be able to connect with them in the virtual conference platform and see if they’ll grab a virtual cup of coffee with you!
  • Attend one of the networking sessions hosted by TechComm experts and sponsors. Share your expertise and learn more about the impact you can make in the STC community and the TechComm industry.
  • Visit the Exhibitors! They will be in their booths each day for discussion of their products and services.
