I don’t know about you, but for me Fall is conference season. It is my busiest season both as a presenter and as an attendee. In most cases, the events I attend are stacked back to back. Although this schedule can be challenging for the body, it is good for developing new insights.
As someone who attends several conferences each year, I have learned that all attendees (whether consumer or business professional) want to maximize their experience. In some cases it is about trying to reduce out-of-pocket expenses, in others it is about getting the most “bang” for the buck, and often it is both. Below are tried and true methods to maximize your conference experience both in terms of money saved and in time invested.
