The 4 Event Types

Peer Networking Events

A networking event where participants from a single peer group are placed into one-on-one chats. Typically, hosts create a booth for each topic area so that participants can elect what topics they wish to discuss. Peer networking events can also be configured to have a single booth where are chats occur. Peer networking events allow everyone within an event to chat freely; participants can connect with anyone else who is attending the event. Peer networking events are used to facilitate engagement between members of the same group or organization.

Examples

  • University
  • Admissions
  • Pre/Post Conference Networking
  • Regional Networking
  • Industry Networking

Mixed Networking Events

Mixed networking events allow two different groups of attendees to be paired in chats. A/B events facilitate engagement between members of two different groups. In this scenario, participants in one group can only connect with attendees that belong to another group. This type of event works well to encourage communication across different groups within an organization.

Examples

  • Student/Alumni Networking
  • Mentoring
  • Office Hours with Alumni Advisor/Mentor
  • Coaching
  • Resume/LinkedIn
  • Admissions
  • Mixed networking default settings
  • Meet and Greet
  • New Student Orientation

Open House Events

Open House events are generally hosted by a single organization that places participants from two different peer groups into one-on-one chats. Open house events typically have multiple booths and have representatives assigned in each of the booths. The representative role has elevated permissions, such as the ability to follow-up with participants and the ability to block participants from chatting with other representatives in the booth. Representatives are typically permitted to engage in more than one chat at time, while non-reps are limited to one chat within the booth. Representative information is also visible on the booth screen.

Examples

  • Recruiter Office Hours
  • Team Meet & Greets
  • Internal Employee Hiring/Development
  • Benefits Open Enrollment
  • Single Employer Career Fair
  • Lead gen
  • Mentoring
  • University Admissions/Prospective Students

Expo Events

Expo events allow two different groups to be paired in chats. Representatives in the superior peer group are assigned to booths to facilitate chats with participants. The representative role has elevated permissions, such as the ability to follow-up with participants and the ability to block participants from chatting with other representatives in the booth. Representatives are typically permitted to engage in more than one chat at time, while non-reps are limited to one chat within the booth. Representative information is also visible on the booth screen. Expo events are hosted by one company but contain booths across multiple organizations and involve multiple booth stakeholders.
