Networking Opporunities

Networking during virtual events can be difficult but ALTA has got you covered. There are five easy ways to connect at ALTA SPRINGBPOARD this year. 

The 1st and most engaging way is through participating in the CHATS. There are different chats for every area of the virtual event including the Ideas Festivals, Knowledge Communities, Career Advancement Talks, the vendor lounge & within each individual vendor booth itself!

#2  you can individually reach out to someone through the “PEOPLE” tab on the event platform. This feature allows you to direct message someone or invite them for a one-on-one video chat. 

The 3rd way is to attend and participate in the Knowledge Communities. These round table breakouts are designed to be interactive so go ahead and turn on your video and audio to participate in the discussion. 

The 4th opportunity is exclusive only to ALTA SPRINGBOARD and that is ALTA’s knowledge sharing tool, Braindate. Braindate helps you tap into the experiences and expertise of your fellow attendees at ALTA SPRINGBOARD. It’s an easy way to connect and learn from each other through conversations about things you care about. Share you knowledge and book 30-minute one-on-one or 45-minute group conversations with other attendees on the platform. All attendees will be given access to the Braindate platform in advance of the event in order to create individual or group Braindate topic(s) along with the opportunity to book Braindates with other attendees. It’s important to note that you don’t need to be an expert on a topic to create a Braindate – simply the desire to learn and share information with your fellow ALTA SPRINGBOARD attendees. 

The 5th and final way is through Networking Roulette. These one-on-one meetings are similar to a FaceTime call and are designed to recreate the serendipitous “coffee-in-the-lobby” conversations or “water cooler chats” that are so important at a live event. When you enter this portion of the platform, you will be prompted to share your audio and video and then you will be randomly paired up with another attendee. The conversation will last for a minimum of 90 seconds or up to a maximum of 5 minutes. At any point during this time, both attendees have the option to share their contact information with one another. All contacts/connections will be stored under the “Connections” tab of your profile. There are a few designated Networking Roulette times on the schedule but please note that this feature will be available throughout the duration of ALTA SPRINGBOARD.
