10 ways to improve your networking at a conference

As I’m heading to INTIX on Monday morning, I’ve been thinking about my goals for the conference.

As a regular conference attendee, I’m often amazed at how people don’t use a conference to the maximum of its potential.

Here are 10 ways to improve your networking at a conference:

  1. Have a plan for the people you want to meet.
  2. Set yourself a goal for new people you want to connect with.
  3. Add value from the start.
  4. Speak if you have the chance.
  5. Spend some time in the sessions.
  6. Spend more time focusing on people than on your technology.
  7. Focus your follow up.
  8. Make sure you are present at the social events.
  9. Reach out and set appointments to talk with key people in advance.
  10. Focus on relationships, not on meeting people. (Less is more.)
