In our second Inside The Studio, we talk through our top tips for attending conferences. Conferences are a fantastic place to meet new people, build relationships and meet new clients.
1) Push your conference comfort zone.
In our experience, there is a lot to learn and gain from attending conferences outside your usual circle.
By attending less obvious events, you have an opportunity to meet new people and bring value into the conversation.
Conferences are expensive, both financially and time-consuming. Attending a conference with an open mind, willing to meet new folk and share stories gives you a high chance of meeting someone whom you connect with.
We often find our best ‘networking’ can be had outside of the main conference schedule.
3) Follow up
Conference networking doesn’t finish at the end of the day.
Make notes and take details of people you meet and follow them up once you’re back in the office, this is especially important, leading up to the same conference the following year.
