Bringing events online – How to keep networking during Covid19

As fear over COVID-19 escalates and in-person gatherings are discouraged, more than 200 large-scale conferences have been cancelled––including Mobile World Conference, Adobe Summit, Facebook F8, Google Cloud Next, SXSW, Microsoft’s MVP Summit, IBM Think, and a slew of others. Some organisations have decided to simply shut down or reschedule at a later date. But other companies are opting for a different route, offering their events digitally, through live-streaming platforms. 

As the majority of us are stuck at home at the moment the likes of Meetup.com and Eventbrite have many events that have moved online. So for those of you who are keen to keep networking this is an ideal way to do so and you may even learn a few things!
