A conference is about more than just topics and speakers. It’s about meeting other like-minded individuals and leaders
Looking to swap business cards, exchange experiences, and gather new ideas? We get it. Conferences can facilitate valuable networking time that allows you to meet with other business leaders like yourself, which can help foster relationships and encourage collaboration.
At SMWL18, we’re all about relationships
Alongside our sessions and workshops, you’ll have the opportunity to meet and network with people like you: entrepreneurs, business owners, and marketing extraordinaires. In between each session, we will provide you with time to get to know other attendees.
We encourage you to meet the people at your table, seek out the speakers, and find the NOW team. Start a new relationship. Perhaps you’ll meet your next business partner! Be sure to have conversation starters ready to go, and schedule extra time before and after conference days so you can have the opportunity to make more connections with others.
If you are looking for networking tips, here are a few of our favorites:
- Bring your business cards
- Plan some ice-breaker questions
- Share personal stories to help build relationships
- Be sure to ask open-ended questions
- Always be genuine and keep eye contact
- Follow up with your connections after the conference is over
We are so excited to meet all of you and help build relationships in 2018!
There will be spaces available for you to sit and talk with the people you meet, both in a group setting or private setting. Our goal is that every attendee gets to enjoy good food, great company, and informative sessions at #SMWL18!
