Top Tips for Attending Conferences

APNE 2014

The conference season is upon us, dust off the suit bag and get ready for some delicious hotel breakfasts. But how can we make the most of our time away from home? What are the best strategies for efficient networking, retaining information and ensuring actual business growth from the initial investment of registration fee?

The top three tips from the seasoned conference goers here at Parking Network are always:

  • Be organised. Schedule yourself and your meetings ahead of time and social media stalk prospective contacts
  • Socialise with confidence. Don’t be shy to approach people and head to drinks, dinners and networking opportunities
  • Follow up. Keep the business cards you’ve collected, connect via social media and maintain open channels of communication

For more detailed advice, read this, this and this.

We hope to see your at our conferences APNE USA and APNE Europe in 2015, until then, relax and enjoy the circuit!!
