Going to conferences and events can have huge benefits. You get face-to-face interaction, opportunities to learn, and chance encounters that can change everything. But here’s the limitation:
What you get out of a conference depends on what you put into it.
So we put together a series of posts on conferences and events.
First, you have to get the funding to get there.
- Finding local conference sponsors. How to work with local businesses to sponsor you to that big event, and what is in it for them.
- Not finding conference sponsors? Then sponsor yourself. How to budget and prepare to get yourself to the big event.
- Getting the most out of conferences before you go. The five W’s of getting ready long before you arrive at the venue.
- Make the most of being at a conference. What I’ve learned from many smart conference-goers.
- After the conference. Making time to follow up, even as you get back in the rush of the day-to-day, is crucial.
Nothing else can replace getting together in person with interesting and inspiring people. So get out there and have a great time at an event!
