ESOMAR Networking tool

Meet... Message... Create Connections

The ESOMAR Networking tool is a platform designed exclusively to help you, as an event participant, to network both before and during the event.

A few weeks before the event you will receive an e-mail inviting you to connect and engage with your fellow event attendees.

The ESOMAR networking tool allows you to...

  • View and filter the event's list of participants
  • Send messages to participants
  • View received and sent messages
  • Set up and control your profile and privacy settings
  • Create and export a “Quick list” of participants

You can even continue discussions and connect with attendees after the event. All attendees keep their access to MyESOMAR and the event group in the messaging tool of MyESOMAR.

Mobile app

Don’t forget that ESOMAR also offers the ESOMARLive App, a mobile app available shortly before the event, through which you can access the networking tool, rate speakers and have useful programme and venue info at the palm of your hand! Download from your app store.
