As the IFE’s Match & Meet Show is fast approaching, here is a short how-to-maximize your Match and Meet experience with Swapcard

Swapcard is an event and networking application, that can easily be accessed online or can be downloaded to your device before Match & Meet.

Here is how Swapcard will be a valuable tool to make the most out of your experience at the Match & Meet:

  • Personalize Your Experience: Make sure to register if you haven’t already. Then it’s time to personalize your experience. Making meaningful connections is a top priority! So begin by clicking on ‘My Profile’ you will be prompted to add: Your profile pic (Import a nice picture in 240x240px minimum and no larger than 1MB.), your name, your email, etc. There is also an ‘About Me’, fill in as much as possible to insure that you maximize your virtual experience. Meeting virtually has become the new norm, so the more effort you put into this experience the more you will take away from, having made new and viable business connections.
  • Network: The Match and Meet site allows you to find all the attendees, and then send an invitation to connect with people you’re interested in. You can arrange meetings before and during the Match & Meet.
  • Reminder relevant sessions: You can bookmark the sessions you are interested in by clicking on the ‘Conference tab and then add sessions by clicking the calendar icon. During Match & Meet, Swapcard will send you a reminder so you do not miss out on anything! 
  • Do your homework: Take time to best fill in your profile info, browse through the site to get familiar and comfortable with the functionality. Browse through the Match & Meet site or application to make sure you do not miss the opportunity to connect, learn and experience with your industry peers! You can also find information about all of the exhibitors and speakers.
