How to break the ice at a conference, before getting there

You’re flying out to one of the hottest tech conferences tomorrow morning. With your itinerary sorted and suitcase packed, all that’s left to do is brush your teeth and get to bed early. As you put on your pyjamas and reach out to switch off your night lamp, you visualise shaking hands with a potential investor and confidently voicing your elevator pitch.

Will you two hit it off? How will you break the ice?

Technology’s solution to this problem comes in the form of the unique business networking app, Scheduit. Designed as a tool for business travellers, the app will help you connect with compatible matches outside your social network while on the road.

With Scheduit in your pocket, you can spend your time worrying about other matters rather than what topics might interest fellow delegates. Here’s how the app can help you break the ice and become a confident networker:

  1. Take full control of the participants list
    Get to know who will be at the conference before landing. Through the app’s geo-mapping facility, you can discover who has announced their presence at the event, their background, interests and skills. Targeting the people you would like to socialise with prior to the event will give you a competitive advantage.
  2. Connect online, interact offline
    After getting an idea of the demographics of the other participants, Scheduit’s messaging feature allows you to connect with compatible matches to let them know you are looking forward to getting to know them. If all goes well, you could schedule a meeting and if confirmed, the app will sync it directly to your phone’s calendar to make sure you don’t miss it!
  3. Follow-up
    When the conference is over, you will boast a list of matches on your app, without having to hand out a single business card. The app will house all your successful networking ventures, making it easier for you to keep each other up to date with future opportunities.

Be part of the networking revolution. Scheduit is available for free download on iOS and Android.
