FAQ

What is Meta?

Virtual events aren't the same as live events, but that doesn't mean they shouldn't be as fun or valuable. Organizations are trying to put a square peg in a round hole by copying physical events in the digital space. Meta is a reimagining of the physical event where people go to learn from experts and make lasting connections that help them achieve their professional goals.

Why should I attend?

A person's network amplifies the opportunities available to them. Attending networking events helps with everything from finding jobs, to closing sales, to making professional connections that will last a lifetime.

What is the experience like during the event?

Building a network means getting to know people and building strong relationships. That requires spending time together talking one-on-one without distractions. Meta is run on a custom event platform and is designed for professionals to get the most out of their event experience. The networking is much like a happy hour. Attendees are able to pass freely from conversation to conversation, connecting with other members at the event or watching conversations from featured speakers. When you're ready to get into a conversation, you are a click away from being connected with the other high value members at the event.

How is the networking different from speed networking?

Conversations tend to happen organically, some last a couple minutes, some an hour. The time constraints of speed networking prevent people from making the deeper connections required to further their business goals. Meta doesn't restrict the time of meetings, giving you the opportunity to talk to others for as long as the conversation remains lively. If you are ever unhappy, a new conversation is just a click away.

What are the technical requirements?

It is recommended that you are using a modern computer with an up-to-date browser. Google Chrome is suggested for the best experience. You also need a functional webcam and microphone (built into a laptop is just fine).

Who will I meet at the event?

That's what makes networking irreplaceable, you can never predict the connections you will make, but you know exactly how much of a difference it makes to know the right people. As many as 85% of open job positions are filled through networking. Join us and experience serendipity.

Can I have more than one person per camera?

No, unfortunately you are only allowed to have one person per camera. Even if multiple people bought a ticket it is a requirement that the users are on separate devices and not in the same camera frame.

How do I join the event?

To join the event you need to first purchase a ticket. Then, in the lead up to the event, you will receive an email with a link that will grant a single individual access to the event.

What is your refund policy?

Unfortunately, once you have purchased a ticket we are unable to issue refunds.

What should I wear?

Wear whatever you feel comfortable in, but remember, this is a professional event. That means sweatpants are probably only acceptable if the shot starts above your waist. Clothes, obviously, are mandatory.

Do I need special equipment to participate?

Aside from anything listed in the technical requirements section, no.

Do I have to be living in a specific place to attend the event?

Meta is a platform open to all people and all languages; however, fluency in English is recommended to enhance communication with all attendees.

Do you offer any discounts?
