With every event, the goal is to make it as engaging as possible to catch the attention of your attendees. Our matchmaking 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.

Creating Interest Tags

  • In your admin console, go to Engage.

  • Select matchmaking.

Add Interest Tags Manually

If you only want to add a handful of topics, then typing it in would be the easiest way to do it.

  • Type in the topic in the field and hit enter, in this example 'Music'.

  • It will then be shown in the Available Tag box below.

  • To delete a tag, just click the X on the tag.
