Speed Networking in the Social27 Events Platform is a beautiful way to connect with other attendees with the same areas of interest and make valuable connections in whichever way best suits you. In Speed Networking, the Social27 platform looks at your selected Areas of Interest. Then, it matches you with attendees who have chosen those same interests. You can connect with your matches, immediately meet with them, or schedule a meeting for a future date/time.
To access Speed Networking, log in to your event, and navigate to the Networking Lounge using the left navigation menu. To start connecting with other attendees, click Meet someone new.
Allow the use of your device’s microphone and camera, then click Join Now.
And select the type of room to start connecting with other attendees :

Once you have verified your areas of interest:

- Or browse through the Speed Networking lobby and schedule meetings with other attendees who have checked out Speed Networking.
If you click Meet Now, you will enter a video call with your match where you can connect over your shared interests. When you hang up from the call, a feedback screen will load asking you to rate your experience, as well as your connection. It is essential to provide this information to help ensure your future matches are an even better fit. After giving feedback, you can meet more companions or return to the lobby.
When you click Find Next Match, the system will display one of your matches to you. Your profile appears on the right side of the screen, and your match’s profile is on the right. You can review the bio information they provided. If they are online, meet with them immediately (a), or if they are not online, schedule a future meeting (b). If you are not interested in meeting with them, click Next Match.
You can return to the Speed Networking lobby by clicking Next Match, then Return to Lobby.
