Benefits of attending tech events
Every year, dozens of tech conferences, festivals, and forums are held worldwide for IT professionals. Here are 4 main benefits of visiting tech events.
Exploring the IT environment and current reality
Any conferences and forums are primarily used as entry points to the professional environment. From this point of view, they are valuable both for beginners and professionals. A person gets an opportunity to look around, to see segment leaders and nearest competitors, to understand who is a significant figure on the market, to listen to who, and to follow. Professionals interested in offering their services to someone can study potential clients and their levels, requests, and moods.
Tech events are always about communication, making new connections, maintaining old ones, and increasing visibility. The target audience, colleagues, and those one step above, whose experience is worth learning can gather in one place. You get into a community with the same interests, preferences, and problems. The more informal the type of event, the easier it is to network. This is usually done by combining an IT conference and a festival or exhibition format.
A conference is an excellent way to PR for a company or a startup. Especially if the program includes an exhibition, where you can buy a stand and hold a presentation of a product or service on it. This increases recognition of the company or specialist and its expertise in a professional environment, especially if it will not only be at the stand but also speak somewhere. Media representatives always attend large IT conferences – the event is covered in print media and on television. This is a chance for any company to be featured in the conference results and thus increase the weight of its brand and become more attractive to potential partners and employees.
Getting new knowledge
You can get new knowledge from every tech conference thanks to the speakers. They talk about experience, research of real cases, and technologies, which the participant can later apply in their work.
SoloWay Technologies’ success at Web Summit 2022
The SoloWay Technologies team was at the Web Summit 2022. It is the largest technology conference in the world. So, when planning a trip to Lisbon, we at SoloWay Technologies set ourselves several ambitious goals:
- To find new partners. 70 000 participants are potential leads. We understood that the more contacts, the more chances to get customers, thus increasing the company’s revenue and attracting funds to Ukraine.
- To present the business. Our company’s participation in a world-class conference is a massive aid for our recognition.
- To get acquainted with market trends. Speeches by industry leaders and the exchange of experience with colleagues make it possible to be among the first to find out what to expect in the technology sector shortly.
- Get inspired by new ideas. Web Summit offers the maximum concentration of concepts, strategies, and innovations that can be implemented in our business.
We succeed at Web Summit 2022 and thus have planned to visit more IT conferences in 2023.
