Networking at ESID 2021

Take your networking to the next level at ESID 2021 by building your SparkX profile.

Quickly find the most relevant participants you need to connect with at this year’s online symposium and start talking to them.

And with a SparkX profile, you will also be more noticeable to others.

What is SparkX?

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

How does SparkX Work?

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

Once ESID 2021 begins and the Symposium 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 Symposium.

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