Networking events, meetings, workshops, and more, the business world never sleeps. We all look for an easy way to create and share events with our community and what’s better than a business-oriented platform to do so? That’s right! LinkedIn finally launched the “Events” page to create and organise events and attain high reach that eases professional meet-ups.
LinkedIn users will now have the chance to create their own events page through the community panel to the left side of the News Feed in the mobile application. This will facilitate in-person meet-ups through a professional social network.
As explained by LinkedIn:
“You need to provide a description, date and time, a venue, and then invite your connections using filters such as location, company, industry, and school.”
Track and Interact
This new feature will come in handy by allowing users to share the event as a post to reach relevant attendees. Additionally, from the events page, they can track attendees and invitees, post updates, and interact with other participants.
Connect before you Meet
How big is your LinkedIn community? Let your connections make an impact, bring your network together and invite them to events, and make face to face meetings easier. Interacting with your followers will help you get higher reach in the events you plan that vary from workshops, networking, alumni meetings, product launches, and more.
Organisers and attendees can send event invitations to their connections. If an event is marked as private, then the organiser needs to provide permission for attendees to invite their connections. Once you accept an event invite, you’ll gain access to a list of all LinkedIn members who will be attending with you. Another advantage behind this newly rolled out feature is explained by LinkedIn: “You can also participate in discussions with other attendees by posting and joining conversations in the event feed”.
This feature also aligns with LinkedIn’s other event tools, like event frames, that allow attendees to overlay on the images and videos posted on the platform.
LinkedIn is always making changes to allow the platform to benefits its users and help them attain maximum exposure to careers, companies, and people that might. What comes next in the successful roadmap of this platform?
