5 Ways to Stand Out at Web3 Networking Events


If you're reading this, chances are you're keen on making a significant impact at your next networking event. We're here to share five unique strategies that will revolutionize your networking approach. By the end of this blog, you'll be equipped to stand out in any networking crowd.

So, how do you stand out at networking events? Here's what Nelly, a content creator on our Careers team, had to say:

1. Discovering Networking Events in Web3

The realm of web3 is brimming with opportunities, offering events both in the metaverse and in real life (IRL). For those looking to immerse themselves in the IRL experiences, websites like metaintro's Events Page, CryptoEvents, Web3 Events Guide, and Dev Events are great starting points. Additionally, a simple Google search for β€œweb3 networking events” can unveil a plethora of other options. Remember, many of these events are free or offer discounts for students, developers, volunteers, and hackers. Don't hesitate to reach out to event organizers if you're looking for a waiver - you might just get lucky!

2. Preparation is Key

Before attending an event, do your homework. Research the companies that will be present and understand who's hiring. By familiarizing yourself with the event sponsors and attendees, you can strategically plan your interactions. This targeted approach ensures you spend time where it matters most.

3. The Art of Ice Breaking

Having a few icebreakers ready can significantly ease the initial awkwardness of a conversation. Simple yet effective openers like,

"How's your conference going so far?"

or

"I love your booth! How long did it take the team to organize for this event?"

(a little flattery can go a long way), can set the stage for a meaningful exchange.

4. Unique Business Cards: Popl

In a world where traditional business cards often end up forgotten in a bag, why not try something innovative? Popl (popl.co) offers customizable digital business cards that can be shared via QR codes or links. They're not only cost-effective but also ensure your contact information is added directly to your new connection's phone.

5. Dress to Impress...Differently!

While professional attire is the norm, consider wearing something that makes you stand out. For instance, a t-shirt with a QR code linked to your resume or LinkedIn profile can be both a conversation starter and a memorable way to share your credentials.

6. Pre-Event Networking

Engage with potential connections before the event even starts. Many conferences have networking platforms like Discord, Slack, or dedicated apps. Reach out to individuals or companies that interest you and propose brief meet-ups during the event. A proactive approach like this often results in fruitful connections.

7. The Personal Touch: Direct Messaging

Don't shy away from directly messaging companies or recruiters attending the event. A simple note expressing your interest in their open roles and requesting a brief chat over coffee can open doors to new opportunities.

These five tips, while simple in nature, are profound in impact. They not only help you stand out but also facilitate genuine connections that can propel your career forward.
