Mingle freely on your own or opt to participate in “speed networking.” This round‐robin networking style involves small groups that are rotated so you can more easily meet others and engage in open discussions. You can mingle with other attendees after the networking rounds are over. Regardless of which you choose, use this opportunity to expand both your knowledge base and network of contacts.
