With industry conferences getting shorter and shorter these days, attendees need to make the most of their networking time.
Here is an idea that will help them do just that.
If your conference ends at 4 or 5 pm, many of your attendees will be able to catch a flight out that night. But, some will be stuck staying the night, or choose to stay the night in order to conduct other business in town the next day. Give them one more chance to mingle with their fellow conference attendees by holding a “Stragglers’ Reception.” It doesn’t have to be long or lavish, but it will allow this group one last chance to accomplish their networking goals.
