1. Download the appNetworking is paramount at an event like RISE, especially if you’re exhibiting. You can judge your success at RISE by the number of valuable connections you make, so start making them early. Reach out to interesting people before the event with the app: your key to a network of thousands of attendees, including investors, speakers and media. Use the search function to find relevant people and favourite their profile in the app. When you get a chance, send a message and introduce yourself. If the conversation goes well you can always invite them to your stand to continue the conversation offline. That’s one surefire way of getting relevant attendees to your stand, making connections that could pay up big later.
2. Get sharing on socialSocial media is a great way to get your stand buzzing at RISE. There’s no need to wait until your exhibition day. In fact, now, in the lead-up to the event, is the best time to get social. The conversation is happening already, so use #RISEConf to join in.
