JiveWorld’16 is a spectacular event, but it’s also a big investment for attendees. Forget about the registration fees and travel expenses, the real investment is your time. With more than 60 information-packed sessions to cover in 3 days, it takes some planning if you want to maximize your investment.
Here are 6 tips to get the most from your JiveWorld experience:
Popular sessions fill very quickly. With the sheer size of the event, you’ll need to consider logistics, location and time available between the sessions so that you don’t have to sprint to arrive on time. You probably won’t be able to attend every session, but fortunately, most of the sessions are recorded and posted on YouTube.
Install the JiveWorld mobile app
Follow the JiveWorld16 space to download the app available for IPhone, android and windows. It’s an effective tool that can help you filter through the 60 sessions and stay on top of your plan. JiveWorld mobile app has a beautifully designed game series to keep all the attendees engaged in the conference.
Be social and begin networking early
Nurturing professional and personal relationships is one of the most valuable benefits of the event. You can begin networking even before JiveWorld begins by connecting with other attendees at the Jive Community. You can follow people with like interests on different social media channels. This will help you network easily once you are at the conference and you can build some strong contacts within your industry. Don’t forget to take along lots of business cards!
Share the experience
JiveWorld is certainly enormous on social media. Consider posting instant and real time JiveWorld updates while you are there. Posting updates is an excellent way of engaging your audience. You can share your experience via pictures, notes, real time tweets and start connecting with the attendees.
Plan your pack wisely
Keep a water bottle and some business cards handy and items like tissue/towel, phone and computer charger, aspirin, and more business cards in your bag. Wear comfortable shoes to protect your feet. You must reach quite early (10-15 minutes) for the sessions as popular sessions get filled up fast and late comers might miss them. Don’t forget to bring a hand sanitizer since there will be a large number of attendees and lots of handshakes too!
Visit Vegas sights
Vegas, the most popular city in the state of Nevada, is well known for its fine dining, shopping, and nightlife and if you are extending your stay until Wednesday, you need to spare some time for ‘Vegas Indoor Skydiving’. Madame Tussaud’s – Vegas’ most loved and famous museum, Wynn Las Vegas – the iconic curved lavish casino, and Venetian Hotel and Gondola Rides are some of the most popular places in the city. If you are looking for impressive nightlife spots, VooDoo Rooftop Nightclub is the one that you should go for.
JiveWorld is an excellent opportunity to meet people, network with experts, share experiences, and build relationships with other Jivers, partners, and customers. Following these 6 tips can help you maximize your JiveWorld experience.
