Connecting the online venue when attending the event physically
Each exhibitor participating in a hybrid event has access to an individual QR code. Candidates visiting your stall in person will then be able to scan the code with their mobile devices and will be redirected to your online stall. This can be useful to…
... connect with relevant candidates. When scanning the QR code the candidate can connect with you via a button in the ‘Mobile view’. After the event, you can then easily access the candidates’ profiles and reach out to them!
… refer to open positions. They can then access the job posts and use the event platform to apply for the jobs you are promoting in the event.
... refer to the information published on your stall. For example about your company or breakout rooms sessions hosted during the event.
So, make sure to have your QR code is displayed! You can either print it or have it displayed on a tablet by your physical stall.
