To engage in a chat during a networking event, you will first need to register and enter a live event with the link you received about 2 hours before the event started. You may also access the link through your registration confirmation email.
Once you are logged into an event, you will enter into the event lobby, as shown in the below image.
When the event is LIVE, your availability status (orange toggle switch) on the top left of the screen will be automatically set switched to “available”.
Then the green chat button will be available on the top right as shown in the below image:
Each booth displays statistics about the current expected wait time and how many participants are currently in the booth. Select a booth that interests you, then click "Enter" to enter the booth, highlighted in orange.
Once inside the booth, you will see a green button on the right side of the page. Click "Chat" when you are ready to chat.
You will be automatically placed into a chat when another participant within the booth is also available. You can also be available or in line in multiple booths at the same time. Return to the event lobby and follow this process again to make yourself available in multiple booths within the event. Your upcoming chats, based on your current availability, will always be displayed on the left-hand side of the event page.
To manage your availability within different booths, please review the support article on "How to manage your availability during an event."
