How to network safely at the Techpoint Digital Currency Summit tomorrow

by | Mar 24, 2021

Imagine this…

It’s finally the day we’ve all been waiting for. It’s Thursday, March 25, 2021, also known as Techpoint Digital Currency Summit day. 

You’re excited to meet other crypto enthusiasts like yourself. In fact, you already wrote down questions for the speakers and panelists, and are looking forward to connecting with this founder and that developer. 

When you get to the event venue, you can’t contain your excitement. You follow the safety instructions and check into the event hall. You can already see others like you, waiting to network before the event kicks off at 9 am, during breaks and after. 


Your first instinct is probably to approach them, introduce yourself and seal it with a firm handshake. 

DON’T DO IT, we’re still in a pandemic. 

That being said, we still want you to make connections while keeping safe. That’s why we have put together this short list of ways to network safely at the event tomorrow. 

1. Keep your mask on always

We understand that wearing a mask for long periods of time can be quite uncomfortable, but to keep everyone safe, we recommend that you keep it on always. 

2. Maintain a social distance

The Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC) recommends that you avoid shaking hands or hugs and maintain at least 2 metres (6 feet) distance between yourself and others.

3. Sanitise your hands frequently 

While we’ll be providing you with sanitisers at the venue, we recommend that you bring along some for personal use. Also, try to avoid touching surfaces and sanitise your hands when you do.

Happy networking! 

We can’t wait to host you tomorrow.
