Top Takeaways

  • Plan for how you’re going to attend the virtual conference. Which sessions do you want to watch live and which can you catch on-demand? How will you store the resources speakers share?
  • Team up! If your colleagues are also attending, create a group note-taking system, and decide whether to watch sessions together or divide and conquer.
  • Interact. Without coffee lines and happy hours, the best way to network and connect at virtual conferences is to participate actively in the discussion. Ask questions, comment in the chat, and reach out to other attendees.
