One of the tasks most over looked when preparing for a conference is researching the location of the conference.
I cannot count how many times I have been asked at a conference about tips on where to eat, how to travel, or where to have a bit of fun.
Having this knowledge is invaluable, it allows for a more relaxing conference and in some cases makes YOU the go to person for information, which is great for beginning to network.
I have put together some tools that I use to scout out the conference.
These are some of the most important tools that I use to prepare for conferences, but they are only a start. I am sure some of the conference veterans could provide so many more tips or warnings when it comes to conferences. In fact, I would love to hear them so feel free to comment on the blog post with your Best Tips.
