    Hey everyone, hope you're doing good and ready to kickstart this week's Tip of the Week discussion!

    Looking at your interest and curiosity to know more about Attendee Hub features, we are back with another helpful tip. Driving conversations amongst attendees during an event has been a top priority for all the planners. However, it's challenging to grip your audience's attention, especially during a virtual event. It's therefore important to ensure your mobile app and event website offers enough options for engagement, networking, and communication purpose.

    Let's look at some of the Attendee Hub features that can help you drive more engagement:

    • Exhibitor Booth Chat:
    • You can access the chat option by navigating to the exhibitor booth on your Attendee Website 
    • Click the Chat button from the right-hand engagement panel and use the textbox to chat with attendees
    • Your organization name will appear after your name in the chat. Once opened, chats are visible to all booth staff and attendees
    • You can make the most out of this feature by engaging your audience with questions, tips, or other useful content related to your event

    • One on One Meetings:
    • It's super easy to staff one on one meetings using Cvent Video Conferencing

    • Before the meeting starts, check the Video Preview to ensure that you've selected the correct microphone and webcam. Once you've freshened up, click 'Join meeting' to speak with the attendee live
    • In the meeting room, you can control your video and audio, as well as share your screen
    • To prevent attendees from requesting a meeting with you while you are away, ensure to click 'Check Out' in the Meet now tab
