In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Business Rockstars and Empowerista's Alex Wehrley talk about how to leverage your in-person into your online network. 

A few tips -- begin by following and engaging with your new followers on social media before your event. This way, instead of arranging to meet in-person, you are already at the top of their mind as they enter the event. 

Moreover, place "photo opps" around your event's space, so attendees will feel inspired to take photos before them. 

Finally, while promoting the event during its run, work to formulate an original hashtag to promote.
