Organizers of online conferences and virtual meetups often post information about speakers and attendees in advance. Try connecting with these people in advance on social media. Ask what they’re hoping to take away from the event or if there’s someone they’re hoping to meet there. By starting a conversation in advance, people will seek you out as a “familiar face” when the event goes live.
