Organic serendipitous networking is a hard thing to do through video.
Video calls for networking always feels too structured and not organic. Guests are paired up with someone they have to talk to and it still feels too organized, almost like a meeting. Why is that?
The reason is because users can’t choose who they talk to and when they want to.
Rally allows users to hop between tables seamlessly so it feels a lot more natural and human - just like a real networking event.
If you’re looking for something that enables engagement and connection between guests, then try out this Networking Mixer template after your main conference for guests to hang out in!
This is how your Networking Mixer can look like:
Here’s how you can do it on Rally:
After you create an account, click into “Edit Venue” to upload your company or event logo and add in any description of the event. You can even include a link that back to the main event page from the venue.
After that, clicking into “Edit Rooms” will allow you to add in different rooms for the different themes. Here we actually set up 5 different rooms - all with different themes depending on where people want to hang out.
Remember to hit “Save Changes” and then “Finish Editing” to save all your edits! (Pro tip: Emojis work here so feel free to get creative!)
And you’re done! All you have to do is “Share the Link” with all your guests to join. If you’re on a custom plan, feel free to ping us to get your own custom URL for the event. Remember to open up the rooms so users can join whichever game room they want!
