Getting the Most from the Summit

The Summit offers a great variety of education along with the opportunity to meet like-minded people, have fun, and learn new tools, strategies and best practices!

Review these tips so that you can get the most from your first experience at the Summit.

 

PLAN

Tip #1: Plan a daily schedule

  • Stay at the conference hotel, which allows you to be close to the action all day, but also get some rest if you need it.
  • Use the program on the mobile conference app to select a first choice session, activity, or event for each available time slot.
  • Select a second choice session for each time slot. Your first choice may not be what you expected. It’s OK to leave a session if it is not what you expected.

 

 

RESOURCES

Tip #2: Take advantage of resources

  • Introduce yourself to speakers whose sessions you really enjoyed. They’ll appreciate the positive feedback and you will make a new contact!
  • Use the conference app, an excellent source of information for all things Summit and a place to set up meetings with other attendees.
  • Visit with industry partners and sponsors. They have fun giveaways and great tool demos.

 

 

 

PLAN

Tip #3: Network! Everyone is doing it!

Networking starters:

  • Hi! I’m (your name) from (city, state, country). Where are you from?
  • This is the first time I’ve been to the Summit—how about you?
  • I’m really looking forward to (session/presenter). What else do you recommend? What session are you going to next?
  • I enjoyed meeting you and I’d love to build my network. May I connect with you on (the app, LinkedIn) afterward?

 

RESOURCES

Tip #4: Follow conference etiquette

  • Follow all published Covid and conference health guidelines.
  • Know the codes and policies for conference attendees.
  • Wear your name tag where it can be seen. This will help others see and remember your name, and our security offices also appreciate it.
  • Silence your cell phone/mobile device in sessions to prevent disruption.
