WHAT IS THE LINKEDIN® NETWORKING LOUNGE? 

linkedin

The networking lounge is the first ever initiative of its kind and enables attendees to network and to make new contacts 'offline' at a live event, whilst simultaneously building their 'online' network through using LinkedIn.

Attendees will have the opportunity to access insight, content and networking opportunities all year round as part of a new community that features a wide range of meet-ups and social events.

HOW DOES THE NETWORKING LOUNGE WORK?

In the networking lounge attendees will network whilst using the LinkedIn app on their mobile to scan each others LinkedIn QR codes to connect online. Whenever two people scan each others LinkedIn QR codes a LinkedIn connection request is sent between them. If you don't know how to use the LinkedIn app and its QR code feature then our friendly team will be there to show you how  (don't worry it's dead simple).

In the networking lounge there will be a timetable of Speed Networking events and various other attendees.

 

Furthermore, the nice folks here at Sydney Build will be providing free refreshments and entertainment in the lounge to facilitate a laid back and fun atmosphere which you won't want to leave!

On the walls of the lounge will be our Humans of Construction display. This will include photos of all the exhibitors and speakers at Sydney Build. Plus, photos of over 1,000 of the most influential professionals working in the Australia's construction industry. Beneath each photo will be interesting snippets from their life-story (written by them) and their LinkedIn QR code for you to scan.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER SYDNEY BUILD?

We want you to leave Sydney Build armed with a wide range of new connections and friends. We also want to make sure you become part of an ongoing exciting and vibrant new community of like-minded professionals.

After you’ve connected on LinkedIn®, we encourage attendees to take a moment to keep the conversation going so you can easily stay in touch. For example, share a post recapping the meeting and @ mentioning the people you just added to your network. To give you a helping hand we will have professional photographers walking the lounge to provide you photos to share with your new contacts should you wish.

 

 

Anyone who attends the lounge will be invited through a LinkedIn event group to a wide-range of free meet-ups and social events throughout the year, including: pub quizzes, cycle trips, yoga classes, cooking lessons, life coaching, business mentoring, away days, and more! 

By attending the networking lounge you will be tapping into a year-round offline & online community where you can network, do business and make new friends for life with professionals from Sydney and all around the world.

CAN ANYONE ATTEND?

Sydney Build is first-and-foremost a trade show for the built environment. The vast majority of attendees will be working in the fields of construction, architecture and engineering. Students and those not in employment are welcome to attend if they wish to pursue a career in the built environment industry. 

AM I EXPECTED TO CONNECT ON LINKEDIN WITH EVERYONE I MEET?

You are welcome to stay as little or as long as you like in the lounge connecting with as few or as many people as you want.

When anyone you meet at the networking lounge sends you a connection request on LinkedIn it is up to you if you later choose to accept it or not. 

We do ask that everyone who attends is community-minded as we look to build an all-inclusive network of built environment professionals that support each other in their careers and their lives. 

IS THE NETWORKING LOUNGE APPROVED BY THE LINKEDIN CORPORATION?

The LinkedIn Corporation have been consulted with on the development of the networking lounge. However, please note the networking lounge is operated and managed by Oliver Kinross Ltd the organisers of Sydney Build and not by the LinkedIn Corporation. The lounge solely makes use of the Linkedin app and QR code feature as a form of business networking within the Sydney Build event (alongside other networking initiatives).

THE SYDNEY BUILD TEAM SOUND LIKE ABSOLUTE LEGENDS FOR ORGANISING THIS, BUT IS IT REALLY FREE AND IS THERE NO CATCH?

Yes we are legends, we don't disagree. It is completely free to attend (this is important to us to make it accessible to all). In fact, we are investing a lot into this to create an innovative new community and to bridge the divide between the world's of offline and online networking.

There is certainly no catch, however we do ask that anyone who wishes to attend does a quick and simple post to their LinkedIn network to say they are attending. Details of this will be emailed to you after you register.
