Getting the Most from the Summit

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

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.
