ways to get the most from your eMA conference experience:
Register early - Early registration
saves you money and provides you with time to develop your objectives
for your conference experience. You are assured of booking a room at
the conference rate, room blocks are limited and we have sold them out
in the past. Airfares are usually much cheaper when you book at least
21 days in advance of flights, you will have a better selection of rates
and airlines. Consider staying a few extra days to debrief and develop
new plans based on the material you acquire at the event.
Prepare - Have a list of at
least five areas you would like to improve in your ebusiness. The resources
and people at the event can provide you with actionable solutions to
many of the issues you face. By preparing questions in advance you are
just that much closer to solutions and improvement in your marketing
program. eMA conferences bring together the best of the best professional
ebusiness experts, take advantage of it.
Bring an associate - If possible,
bring along an associate or fellow employee. You will be able to exchange
ideas and perceptions and often develop even more advantageous positioning
for your ebusiness initiatives.
Be ready to network - Bring along lots of business cards,
but remember that at any event, your time is limited. There will be
exceptional networking opportunities at an eMA event. No huge crowds,
newbie's, or non-professionals. Almost all fellow delegates will be
facing many of the same problems and issues that you are. Engage in
discussion opportunities that are not available at any other conference.
Take full advantage of breaks, and receptions to meet new friends.
Accept fatigue - Traveling and
attending an event can take a high energy level. Try to arrive a day
or two early to rest and prepare for the event, stay a day longer to
unwind and debrief yourself. eMA events provide at least a 5 day "window"
for special hotel rates. So book early.
Plan your day - Select the sessions that are the most valuable
to you and check them off on your conference agenda. Try to arrive early
in the morning and take advantage of networking opportunities at registration
and breakfast. Focus on the conference and try to avoid phone calls,
and other distractions while you are there.
Share - When you get back to
your office from the event be sure to share the information you've gathered
with your staff and peers. The interest and enthusiasm you have will
help ensure that you are perceived as an dedicated professional by your
associates. Your commitment to progress will be of benefit to your company
and or your clients.
Consult - Take advantage of
the post-conference consultation offered to all delegates at eMA conferences.
Many delegates have solved problems and found exceptional solutions
by utilizing this service. No other conference that we know of offers
this kind of post event resource.
eMail - Be sure to connect via email with your new contacts
and friends within 2 weeks after the conference. Developing a strong
contact list can be one of the most valuable benifits of your participation.
Who you know can often be as important as what you know.
