If you are a part of this vibrant Technology Industry then participating in various Technology Events matters a lot!
Thinking about participating in an upcoming Technology Event in your City? Or your company has decided to send you as a delegate?
Don’t think twice, it’s a great opportunity believe me. If you are a first timer then lots of unusual thoughts will come in your mind.
But I will suggest you to go there to gain knowledge, experience & exposure. Some people will tell you, what will happen by attending those events?
Don’t listen to them. There will always be some Naysayers but you have to understand your benefit first as an individual and also for your organisation where you work .
Most of the people intentionally/ unintentionally stuck in their dull & boring job roles & always curse that.
Even, if they get a good opportunity someday to move further or higher, they got confused & never be able to move an inch. So don’t be like them.
When you are in Technology Space you have to be dynamic & quick decision maker, otherwise you will not be able to cope up with this rapidly changing Tech Landscape.
Either you are a Tech Entrepreneur or an Employee in a Tech company, if you have the dream to grow in life then you have to be very quick learner & decision maker.
Don’t hesitate for taking any bold decision, whether it’s money wise or capability wise. Trust me the return will be tremendous.
It’s not only for Techies but irrespective of any sector these kind of Networking or Business Events/ Meets are highly effective for all kind of professionals.
Only if you can utilise it properly. Yes that’s the only catch. It’s not the catch but I think it’s the fact.
Because at the end of the day you have to crave your own path by knowing proper ways & by implying proper strategies.
So now the ultimate question is, what benefits you will get by participating in these Technology Events/ Meet-ups?
Check out the following benefits.
Expanding your Reach & Contact
It’s the first & foremost benefit. Expanding your reach, contact & network.
Because lots of things are happening around us, so if you can’t expand your reach, don’t meet with new people & talk to them about their work, then how you will be able to know ?
So this type of Technology Events/ Meet-Ups gives you that exact scope.
Enriching your Knowledge Base
When you will meet with various people of different level, get to know their work & gain insights, then it will enhance & enrich your knowledge. You can utilise it in your scope of work.
Because we always think in a certain way, so to get an overall idea/ knowledge it’s very important that we listen others opinion too.
In this way our depth of thinking increase & we can push ourselves beyond our limit.
Possibility of Collaboration
Suppose in an Event you have met with a fellow Entrepreneur who is working on an exciting technology or idea.
After talking with him/ her in detail you have found out, you both can work collaboratively to make a bigger impact.
Because the idea on which you are currently working is great but it has some shortcomings, which can be resolved if both of your ideas can merge.
So this is a great benefit which you can get from these Technology Events.
Getting a new Business Partner
As I have mentioned in my previous point, collaboration can have tremendous potential for your business’s/ company’s growth.
In the same way Business Partnership too can be really helpful. Let’s say your expertise is in software but your software application is dependent on a specific type of hardware.
So in that event if you find a suitable company who are specialising in that type of hardware then you both can become business partners.
So getting partnership opportunities are also a reason.
Finding new Investor/ Mentor
If you are looking for a good Investor for your Company/ Start-up/ Idea, then also you can utilise this platform.
In these kind of Technology Events, you will be able to meet many notable persons in Technology space & VCs (Venture Capitalists) who are also looking for next big thing to invest on.
So you can pitch your Idea/ Business Plan to them directly. Beside investment, if you get an experienced person as a mentor then wouldn’t that be great?
So try harder to make any of these realise.
Attracting new Clients
Hurrah….. How will it be if you can attract a few clients from an event. Because in a platform like this when you are getting a chance to present your product in front of so many people, utilise it properly.
So who knows, after seeing the demo of your product somebody can become a direct client of yours.
Helps you to become a more confident person
Yes that’s your ultimate gain for your inner self. When you meet with such big personalities, talk to them, show them your product & discuss with them, then ultimately it will boost your confidence level to a great extent.
Not only that in a big Technology Event you will also get a scope to attend many high quality seminars & workshops on different emerging topics by some notable speakers.
So this is also a great opportunity to be inspired by them and become more confident like them.
These are the 7 significant benefits which you can get by participating in these Technology Events. So don’t think or hesitate, if you have got the opportunity, leverage it. Best of Luck 🙂
