Attending an Event? How To Use Around Me.

The MeetVibe app improves your networking opportunities while attending an event. Our phone-to-phone technology allows you to discover and view the profiles of people within your proximity. It will also provide real time event information directly to your mobile phone.

Create a Profile
  • Get the free iOS or Android app and join our community.
  • Be sure to accept Location permissions and enable your phone’s Bluetooth function.
Adjust Your Settings
  • Update your Profile Photo and the Talk to Me About line by tapping the circle icon in the top left hand corner.
  • Set Proximity Availability preferences to Public to get conversations off to a meaningful start!

Tips While Attending the Event

  • During the event your proximity setting should be set to Public to maximize networking opportunities.
  • Fill in your profile Bio section with information that is relevant to this event. This helps you and others to understand objectives to easily identify the people with shared interests.
  • The Talk to Me About line of the profile is great for ice-breaking topics. Let other’s know what you want to talk about or enter a witty comment to encourage interaction.
  • When you make a valuable networking connection during the event, be sure to Follow that person. Simplified scheduling and calendar availability viewing will ensure frictionless follow-up.
  • Set Proximity & Calendar Availability preferences:
    • Public means that anyone using MeetVibe can discover you or view your calendar availability
    • Private means only those in your MeetVibe network can discover you or view your calendar availability
    • A MeetVibe connection is when two users have both selected to Follow each other. Note that both parties must elect to Follow for availability sharing when profile is set to Private
