Some great tips, especially for the novice or less experienced delegate, I particularly like the advice about tacking on sightseeing days and involving family wherever possible.
So many of my trips have been airport-taxi-hotel-conference centre-taxi-airport but I now always make time for some sightseeing, makes the time away all the more valuable.
I also can't agree more with the idea of networking. I probably get more value out of conferences and the like from networking with the other delegates than I do from attending many of the schedule sessions and workshops. As a consultant, you can make valuable "noise" at every turn.
Great ebook and a must read for newbie and experienced conference goers alike.
This book really provides a wealth of tips that in my opinion are valuable even to experienced professionals. It is written with the intention of making it easy for readers; it isn't long so you don't need much time to invest on reading it.
The format as an e-book is ideal, adding notes and highlighting becomes very useful here, so you can review Jim's wisdom before you go to the next conference.
This book is not a guide on how to organize events, it is a guide on how to participate on events effectively.
If you are the one deciding who goes to which conference within your Organization, ask your team to read the book before going anywhere. Their experience will be better and think about the ROI.
Great work and very useful to anyone who wants to make full use of networking events, conferences, and conventions.
If you go to trade shows, conferences or even things like user groups or social events, this is a must read.
