Although the vaccine has been approved in certain countries, the ghosts of a global pandemic are still lurking around. The times are far when we could actually declare countries or the world COVID-free. But does this situation equate to the loss of your business due to lack of networking?
Not at all! With the growing developments in technology, we are much-better equipped to deal with uncertainties. We have been able to stay in touch with vital members (both in personal and professional lives), but have somehow been terribly stuck in expanding the network. However, this is just a temporary halt and not a dead-end. If you’re wondering how you can possibly grow your network and build value-driven business alliances amidst a global pandemic, then this blog is for you.
We won’t highlight the top 5 things here, but would focus on one that will bring sure-shot results in bringing you under the same roof as your industry’s experts. If questions are popping up in your mind, then there’s a one-word answer for all of them- conferences. Yes, contrary to the assumptions, conferences are still taking place and remain to be one of the most sought-after ways in which you can truly expand and add value to your network.
If you’re getting paranoid just thinking about attending a conference in a pandemic and wondering that it would defy the very premise around which the rules to fight COVID-19 are built, then you’re mistaken. The past one year (almost) has prepared event organizers to mould their ways and innovate in order to create the conferences that are conducive with WHO’s guidelines. To cite an example, Prism Events, Inc., a US based event management company that organizes international conferences (such as IFAH, InterCon, and GFEL), is all set to host 8 conferences, which cater to varied industries, in April 2021. Right from the precautionary measures to adherence to government policies, extensive efforts have been taken to ensure the safety of the attendees. Along with this, a detailed agenda is prepared to ensure that the delegates are able to expand their knowledge horizons and network with the brightest minds in the industry.
If you pay enough attention, you can find a conference that matches your needs. By attending it in person, you’ll be able to network well with other members of your community/sector. So, it’s important to do your due-diligence, and identify the conference(s) that you want to attend to grow your knowledge and network.
Don’t hold back and wonder if things are happening that can stir important discussions, because they are! All you have to do is identify the ones that you want to attend and sign up for them.
