  • To be revitalized and to be empowered
  • To discover a new city or country

But before attending such events, take up some important tips for you to prepare.

BOOK FOR A HOTEL JUST ACROSS OR NEARBY THE EVENT VENUE. Always book for a hotel before an event, to avoid stressing yourself out in looking for a comfortable quarter for a temporary stay. If your hotel is far from the venue you can check their free bus shuttles to take you there. Make sure you already got your things needed for the event.

MAKE YOURSELF PRESENTABLE. Dress appropriately in accordance with the event’s house rules. On most conferences, business casual is the standard outfit. If there’s no written policies in regards to dress codes, then opt for some comfy jeans instead.

BRING SOME NECESSARY THINGS WITH YOU ON THE EVENT. Things like business cards with your complete title and contact information is needed. Don’t forget to bring adapters or power banks, for your smartphone, laptop, and tablet.

HAVE A SOUND MIND WHEN AT THE EVENT AREA. Upon receiving your badge and other conference materials after registering, check out some of the event’s hardcopy agenda and program book. Ask if they have some apps for the event that you can easily download with all the necessary items you needed during the event including food locations, event schedules, locations for different event sessions, etc.

CHECK OUT SOME BREAK OUT SESSIONS. Try to attend all the important sessions and major exhibits. Don’t forget to check out some breakout sessions that are related you area of practice, because there must be some inspirational speakers present with the event.
