How to Make the Most of Crypto Conferences

Attending crypto conferences entails so much more than just sitting in sessions. You need an overall strategy to maximize the networking, learning, and visibility these events offer. Here are some tips:

  • Clearly define your objectives for attending and focus on those on your agenda or network. Are you scouting for investors, potential partners, or enhancing your crypto knowledge?
  • Research speakers, panelists, sponsors/exhibitors attendees in advance and identify your primary targets for meetings. Reach out through LinkedIn, Twitter DMs or Telegram to schedule meetings.
  • Prepare a one-minute “elevator” pitch summarizing your background, projects, experience and value proposition. Refine and memorize this to effectively promote yourself during networking.
  • Bring plenty of business cards and possibly some marketing flyers or one-pagers if relevant. Collect cards from new connections for following up.
  • Attend mixers, dinners and parties as much as sessions. Casual conversations can spark meaningful connections just as much as curated content.
  • Balance following speakers and panelists you’re interested in with keeping time free for potential meetings. Overpacking your schedule reduces networking time.
