Virtual Networking

The Steel Decarbonisation Strategies Virtual Conference 2022 has networking at it's heart, to facilitate business and to give you that human connection. 

From the minute you enter the virtual venue you'll be able to see everyone else who is there.  You can find people you want to connect with more easily, as you can search the full delegate list on the platform by name, company name, and keywords – you can see if they are also live online and where in the platform they are.  You can reach out to other attendees via chat/message, email, and video call – plus the video call has the ability to add up to 25 people for a group meeting.  Plus, there will be group "Speed networking sessions" - find out more here.

From the minute you enter the virtual venue you can start networking and booking those all important meetings, start chats, video calls and more - here's how:

From the lobby (or anywhere else), click on 'Attendee list' to see who else is attending – search by name, company, or keyword.  

Every delegate is encouraged to complete their profile, including their interests, to make the best of the virtual networking function.

CRU Virtual Venue Who's online feature

See 'Who's Online' -  wherever you are in the venue - even in the auditorium
.  This filters the 'Attendee List' to just those who are logged into the event – and you can see where they are in the virtual venue – in the Lobby, the Exhibit Hall, the Resources Center or in the Auditorium.

From both the 'Attendee List' and 'Who’s Online', you can click on a person to see their profile, start a chat, start a video call, send them a message (this goes to their email) or request a meeting.
