Thank you for registering for STC’s Technical Communication Summit.

The Summit offers all kinds of education, along with the opportunity to meet other people who “speak your language.”

Please take a few minutes to review these tips so that you can get the most from your first experience at the Summit.

PLAN

Tip #1: Plan a daily schedule

  • Use the program on the conference app to select a first choice session for each time slot.
  • Select a second choice session for each time slot. Your first choice may not be what you expected. It’s o.k. to leave a session.

RESOURCES

Tip #2: Take advantage of “resources”

  • Stay at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue to be close to the action all day!
  • Visit with the exhibitors in the Expo Hall.
  • Introduce yourself to speakers you really like. They’ll appreciate the positive feedback!
  • Use the conference app. This is an excellent source of information, and you’ll receive updates and reminders of the Summit activities.

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?

RESOURCES

Tip #4: Follow conference “etiquette”

  • Wear your nametag where it can be seen. This will help others remember your name, and badge checkers will let you in the special events!
  • Don’t let your cell phone/mobile device annoy others.
