Understanding Zoom Events networking

Zoom Events leads the way in hosting virtual events. As more events are held virtually with higher numbers of attendance, Zoom Events Profiles connect users so they can build their network while attending virtual events.

While attending events, you can other like-minded people who attend the same industry events, experience the same expositions, and learn at the same lectures as you. Zoom Events Profiles let you see—and to be seen—at a quick glance so that you can socialize and network with others more easily in the events you are attending with your peers, enabling you to expand your professional and personal contacts to a global scale.

You can also show and express your support for someone's profile by "applauding" and "liking" certain parts of their profile, such as their interests and educational background; the number of applauds and likes received will be indicated. You can only give a maximum of 10 “applause” per person, and something fun happens if you give the full 10 applauds to a person.

Frequently asked questions about Zoom Events profiles

Are Zoom Events profiles mandatory?

No, but completing your profile makes it easier for you to network with others as you’re attending events.

Can I create a profile if I don't have a Zoom Events account?

If you do not have a Zoom Events account, you can create a basic profile after you join an event as a guest user. Basic profiles allow for an avatar, the guest user's first and last name, their company name and their role, and an email address to be added.

Users who are signed into Zoom Events will be able to see your basic profile information. However, only your Zoom Events connections will be able to see your contact information—identified by an eye-off icon —when you are completing your profile.
