Networking at the Virtual Congress

Networking at the Virtual Congress


With SparkX you will be more noticeable to others! Build your SparkX profile in the Virtual Congress platform and connect with other participants that have similar interests to yours.

At this year’s online congress setting up 1-on-1 meetings has never been easier.

What is SparkX?

SparkX is an AI-based networking platform at WSC 2021. It will recommend you the most relevant people you should meet during the Congress and enables you to chat with them or set a 1-on-1 meeting.

How does SparkX Work?

As a registered participant to the WSC 2021 Virtual Congress, you will receive an invite to build a profile in the days building-up to the conference. SparkX then analyses your profile and matches it other participants’ profiles, based on your networking goals, interests and professional background.

Once the WSC 2021 begins and the Congress Platform opens, go to the Networking Lounge and click on the SparkX button. From inside SparkX, you will be able to view and edit your profile, plus review your recommendations on who to meet during the Congress.

If you want to connect with one of your recommendations, like their profile. If they like you as well, then you are a match!

With a match, you can start chatting via the SparkX platform or set a 1-on-1 meeting.

The platform will also generate a calendar reminder and provide a video meeting room for each of your meetings.

How do I get started?

A few days before the Congress, you will receive an invite to the email address you used to register for the WSC 2021. The email will ask you to complete your SparkX profile. In under 2 minutes, you will be able to build your profile and be ready to receive networking recommendations.

Once the WSC 2021 Virtual Congress starts, where do I find SparkX?

The SparkX platform is located in the Networking Lounge.

Top Tip

Don’t wait until the Congress begins to create your profile. We encourage you to build your profile before the live conference times, so you have recommendations waiting for you as early as possible.
