Advice for attending your first conference: 

  • Wear comfortable shoes 
  • Bring something to take notes with 
  • Ask questions to get the most value out of the sessions you attend 
  • Be yourself – wear whatever makes your comfortable 
  • Look through the agenda before the event and plan which sessions you want to go to in advance – there are a ton of sessions! 
  • Plan in your primary areas of interest 
  • Follow the presenters on LinkedIn for more content 
  • Come prepared with your resume and LinkedIn updated if you are looking for work! It’s a great way to find potential employers. 
  • Don’t be shy and be resilient – “you may need to knock on 100 doors until one opens” – Sahim 
  • Don’t be intimidated by the sessions! You may know more than you think 
  • Pack Band-Aids and Advil (to deal with your blisters if you wear uncomfortable shoes) 
  • Go talk to people at the booths – everyone is there to network, so don’t be afraid to go talk to people 
  • Find a partner to walk around with if you’re nervous to do it by yourself
