Conferences are exquisite. What greater way to meet new people than at a conference for your career field or a subject you’re passionate about? Yes, people are there for the workshops and to hear the speakers. But more importantly, they’re there to meet new people and network.
And the beauty of conferences is that they don’t make the networking feel like some undercover version of speed dating. We all know how those events tend to go over. At conferences, you can chat with a bunch of cool people and if something more comes of it, awesome! If not, you still met a bunch of cool people.
