One of the most anticipated ingredients of the #ConferenceSeason is the networking party. Not only are parties fun and a chance to unwind from the long day – but they offer some of the best networking opportunities to be found.
- Figure out which parties are for you!
- Stand out!!! If you are new to conferences, this is a critical element. To grow your stock in the industry, sometimes you have to do something to get people to remember who you are. If there is a karaoke party, get up there and sing! If there is a costume party – make an effort to find a costume. It isn’t just more fun, but people remember other people who have that type of charisma … trust me, you’ll end up with a lot more people remembering who you are when you make follow up calls.
- Be respectful of the host and other guests. Stay in control – remember, first impressions are critical… don’t be the out of control party-goer. If the party has an invite list… don’t crash it!
