How and why you should be more social

One of the main reasons we attend industry events is to network. So why, when there are arguably more networking opportunities, should a virtual event be any different? To get the most out of Vitafoods Asia Digital Week, we’ve outlined some key things that you can do, to increase your presence and make new business connections.

Before the event

Share, share, and share. It’s important to let your network know you’re attending, this way you can establish and maintain new and existing relationships.

If you are a visitor, you can spread the word by inviting your social network to the event, simply by selecting your preferred social network in the confirmation email you have received. You can also follow the LinkedIn event page and official hashtag #VitafoodsAsiaDW to keep updated on all event-related content.

If you’re an exhibitor, make sure to promote your participation at the event to gain as much exposure as possible. As part of your exhibitor package, you receive web banners to promote your participation along with a guide on how you can make your exhibitor profile stand out. We’ll be sharing some of the best posts our official social media pages.

During the event

Some of the most memorable events are those with the most audience participation. At Vitafoods Asia Digital Week, there are numerous ways to interact once event is underway. Our content sessions will feature a live Q&A, where you can keep the conversation going using our chat function. Learned something new? You can also share your favourite moments on your preferred social media platform for the community to enjoy.

Throughout the duration of the event, participants will also be able to send meeting requests, so it’s important to manage your calendar to meet with potential business partners. Once you’ve met with others, you can even exchange virtual business cards to continue the conversation.

After the event

Once the event is over, it’s time to cement the relationships you’ve made. Head to LinkedIn to follow up with your new connections or send them an email if you’ve swapped virtual business cards.
