If you want to connect with people from your profession or interest, a good way to do it is by attending conferences. Some of these seminars can extend over 2-3 days depending on the topics and speakers. The speakers are usually eminent industry personnel who share their ideas and experiences. These seminars are usually interactive sessions where you can converse with the speakers and ask them any questions that you may have. You can learn a lot of new things about the market and your industry in general, that will help you to grow as a professional.
Seminars have become very popular in the last few years and the number was grown considerably. There are thousands of seminars being held every day in India alone.
