There are hundreds and thousands of professional conferences across the globe. While a lot of people come to seek new insights, learn and present, a huge chunk of people also look for networking opportunities with other attendees. However, initial discoveries were made that actually, there are some gaps in how attendees network with others especially before and after the conferences. Therefore, in attempt to alleviate some of the pain points and satisfy the needs, this project aims to create a solution for conference attendees who want to efficiently network with other people not only during the conferences but also before and after the conferences by introducing a new product idea made by LinkedIn.
