In this episode of the ‘Where People Meet’ podcast, we are joined by Matthijs Otto, Founder and CEO of NetworkTables, a web-based software solution that helps event organizers maximize networking opportunities at their in-person, hybrid and virtual events. Based in Amsterdam, Netherlands, NetworkTables helps attendees meet the right people at events in over 34+ countries, and has been growing 30% per quarter since its launch. At conferences, they bring event attendees together at tables for 1-on-1 meetings, lunches, topic-based discussions, or dinners, which ultimately eliminates networking barriers and creates a better event experience for attendees, leading to higher ticket sales!
We were incredibly lucky to have Matthijs sit down to answer a few questions about his background in the meetings and events industry, where he got the idea for his company, what his founding journey looked like, how NetworkTables is used for onsite events, his successes, failures and what the future looks like for his company. As always, we close out the episode by asking Matthijs to provide listeners who are looking to maximize their networking experiences at events with some actionable tips and tricks.
