With every event, the goal is to make it as engaging as possible to catch the attention of your attendees. Our virtual networking feature allows the attendees to choose their topics of interest that will help them get matched with other attendees having the same interests in a networking session and allow other attendees to see which attendees have the same interests when they are looking at the "Suggested for You" section in the People tab.

To know which attendees have the same interests as you, go to the People tab in the virtual event hub and type in the interest tag in the search bar or simply go to the “Suggested For You” section in the People tab to see all attendees that applied the same interest tags as you.
