I’ve just returned from Social Media Marketing World conference so it feels like a perfect opportunity to share 4 Tips to Boost the Benefits of Attending Conferences.
1. Give value to other attendees. Create a report. Shoot a highlights video. Interview some of the speakers. There is a number of ways you can get attention.
2. Choose conferences that offer good attendee to exhibitor ratio. Web summit vs SMMW.
BONUS TIP: If you want to be a sponsor – book early to choose the best spot.
3. Dominate top tweets and Instagram posts for conference-related hashtags. Boost it with your social media channels.
4. Use it to build a relationship with speakers. Might be the most important reason for attending a conference in the first place.
