Tips for attending fintech and related industry events

First time attending an industry conference? Here are a few tips for making the most of your experience.

Plan ahead to maximize your experience 

Preparation is key to a successful conference experience. This includes researching speakers, getting a feel for the conference space and how long it takes to get around, familiarizing yourself with the key themes of the event, identifying sessions of interest and setting clear objectives for what you hope to achieve there. 

Additionally, take advantage of the incredible networking opportunities by reaching out to and scheduling meetings with key contacts well in advance. It’s also a good idea to provide contacts with more than one way to reach you, just in case someone has trouble with the app, forgets their password, etc.

Apply effective networking strategies

Before you head out, have your elevator pitch ready. To craft a compelling pitch for your business:

  1. Start with a hook: Open with an attention-grabbing statement or question that addresses a common pain point in your industry.
  2. Introduce your business: Briefly explain what your company does in clear, jargon-free language.
  3. Highlight unique value: Emphasize what sets your business apart and why it matters to your target audience.
  4. Provide a quick example: Share a short success story or concrete example that illustrates your value proposition.
  5. Be prepared for dialogue: Keep it brief to invite further questions and conversation, setting the stage for deeper engagement.

You should also be prepared to share your contact information, whether that’s via a business card or via your phone, LinkedIn, etc. And, of course, don’t forget to follow up after the event.

Creating and engaging in social media discussions using event hashtags can also enhance your networking efforts, particularly on platforms such as LinkedIn.

Come prepared 

Be sure to pack essentials such as comfortable clothing and shoes, a notebook and pen, phone and computer chargers, a portable phone battery, etc.
