Choose how your attendees suggest a meeting to their matches

Attendees can suggest meetings in two different ways in Brella. Choose the best option for your event:

Option 1 : Scheduled networking slots

*Enable meeting slots in Details tab in the admin panel.

You'll need to create networking slots and attendees will be able to suggest meetings at the times given by the slots. So they'll network during the times allocated in the slots only.

Option 2 : Chat open for networking

*Disable meeting slots in the Details tab in the admin panel.

You'll not need to create networking slots and attendees will be able to suggest meetings directly through the chat at any time of the event. They will need to arrange their virtual meetings via chat.

Note: Option 2 needs more engagement from attendees as they have to set their own meeting times and can be a bit more time consuming from their end.

Tip: It's recommended to have scheduled networking slots so when attendees make a meeting request, they'll be able to choose a specific time to network with their match.

Option 1 : Scheduled networking slots

It's good to choose this option if you:

  • want to have specific meeting times during your event.
  • want attendees to have the option to have fixed networking times.

So, how would an attendee network with 'Scheduled networking slots'?
