How do networking opportunities work?

MaRS Climate Impact will have an online hub for automated one-on-one meetings. The networking zone on Hopin offers an experience that feels like FaceTime or Hangouts, with two people paired over a direct video call. In the networking tab, when an attendee clicks the ready button, the system searches for someone else who has also clicked ready. If someone else is available, the two are matched instantly and a two-minute video chat begins. After two minutes the meeting ends. Attendees will also have the opportunity to connect with other participants via the chat functionality within Hopin.

An attendee list will be available within Hopin.
