Speed Dating Guide


A Guide to Speed Dating

We are excited to be hosting New Media Expo at the Rio All Suites Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, NV. We will be providing our attendees with an opportunity to connect with each other through the use of Presdo Match. You will have received a welcome letter, and before you dive in, we would like you to review this guide.


Who Can You Meet During These Events?

Speed Dating was created to facilitate networking between Content Creators and Exhibitors/Sponsors.  We also provide the ability for Brands to rent a table to participate in these events as well.  Content Creators will be able to request appointments through Presdo with both Exhibitors, Sponsors and Brands with tables and vice versa only.

Example:

  • Attendee/Content Creator <–> Sponsor  = Allowed
  • Attendee/Content Creator <–> Exhibitor = Allowed
  • Attendee/Content Creator <–> Brand w/ a table = Allowed
  • Attendee/Content Creator <–> Attendee/Content Creator = Not Allowed
  • Exhibitor <–> Sponsor = Not Allowed

Filling out Your Profile – Template

Important Note: When you login, you will be given an option to import your LinkedIn profile or create a New Profile.  We advise that you create a new profile.  If you do opt to import your LinkedIn profile this will override our template.  You can still access a copy of the template in the guide and copy it into your profile.

We’ve come up with a profile template that will allow everyone to easily access important information in order to facilitate scheduling appointments. This will be automatically uploaded into your profile with a few pieces of the information already filled in from your registration information, but please be sure to review it and make sure it is accurate.
