LinkedIn says that event attendees have increased 40% from recommendations found in the “My Network” tab.

LinkedIn is also sending notifications to the followers when a company posts an event on their page. It is shortlisting those followers who have attended previous events of that company and sending a notification to them.

LinkedIn is finally allowing marketers to collect leads from event sign-ups. It is the most requested feature since LinkedIn offered virtual events facility.
