Become a Networking Whiz at ArabNet Digital Summit

ArabNet Team, Apr 26 2018

Only a few days separate us from ArabNet Digital Summit 2018, so it’s time to start getting your game ready by upgrading your networking skills. 

The ArabNet Digital Summit, taking place from April 30th to May 1st at the Madinat Jumeirah - Conference Center, is the ideal place for you to network and meet with global and regional leaders, investors, entrepreneurs and many others.

Here is a list of ways to enhance your networking experience:

1. Be Inspired by the Agenda
Give the agenda a good read. Learn about the different forums, panels, and speakers. After doing so, choose the ones that are most relevant to your business or interests. The agenda is your first tool to devise a plan geared towards your goals.

Should there be specific attendees, exhibitors, or speakers you wish to connect with, do your proper research about them beforehand. Equipping yourself with background information about your target connection will smoothen the networking process.

2. Download our mobile app
Our mobile app (available on both Android and Apple) is designed to help you network with other attendees both before and during the event via the in-app messaging service. The app also includes a list of all the speakers and the agenda, so you can identify in advance the speakers you want to meet and when they will be speaking.

3. Bring lots of business cards
You never know who you might be meeting at the Summit. For that reason, it is very important to keep your business card with you at all times. Keep that in mind while you pack your things in preparation for the Summit.

4. Hang out at the TechFair
The TechFair is the accompanying exhibition to the ArabNet Digital Summit, featuring over 50 exhibitors from around the region and the world. Leading companies and promising startups will be showcasing their best to the numerous attendees. Check out the TechFair to mingle, connect, and also discover the latest trends, applications, and technologies. 

6. Follow up with your new connections
When you're back home or to your hotel room after a long day of networking, don't give in to the urge to rest. Send out short, personalized emails to all the people you've met while it's still fresh. And if reciprocated, continue investing in the relationship in the future.
