Meet other people who share your passion and career:

Attending different tech events not only will you meet a plethora of different people who all share similar passions, goals and ambitions career wise, but you'll also be in the presence of a lot of your competitors when you're there! This is a great way to expand your network by talking to different people throughout the day. Remember to connect with them on LinkedIn to continue the relationships between people in the tech world. By doing this you’ll be able to grow stronger relationships and expand your professional networks. This could help your company scale up as speaking to people in the same industry and asking if they’re open to looking for different roles and potentially joining your company is a great way to expand your team and open up opportunities for the business to scale up.

Expand your Network

Meeting new people and connecting with them on LinkedIn is a great way to expand your professional network. Another great way of doing this is by joining different social media groups. Subsequently, it will increase your social media presence before and after the event. Making sure you stay active and known in the industry, will lead to more brand exposure for your company. People will be likely to engage in business with you, after they've seen how active you are on social media. Building a portfolio of your work so they can see that you'd be a trusted and successful business part.

Make a Lasting Impression:

As a result of lockdown in 2020, there has been a huge rise in remote working and meetings through virtually rather than in person. Even though that’s become the new norm it’s still so important to meet people in the industry face to face to make a more authentic and lasting impression. It’s a lot more memorable seeing someone and engaging in convocation face to face as oppose to just on a screen via teams.
