Yes, most of the time they are! Think about yourself: you would do the same. If you need something, you need to go and find it!
Online networking and offline events
Since 2003, I developped a good interest for online networking: when you attend the events from openBC or Ecademy according to you what is the room's audience? Most of people are selling their services or are looking for a job... It is still very rare to find fellow networkers who are ready to spend time and money, mainly for the possibility to meet fantastic people and create value from the randomness of those events!
Eventually, you will be looking for something too
Moreover, it is exactely as if you were complaining (wrongly) about how much time it takes to network: when you will need something, you would not mind spending a couple of hours if only it enables you to get the job you are looking for, would you?
