On my trip to the Public Relations Society of America’s Marketing and Digital Communications Conference in San Diego, I learned about traveling for business. If you’re attending a conference, keep these tips in mind to make the most of your time:
• Always bring a sweater. Conferences are usually held in hotel ballrooms or convention centers that are cool (read: freezing).
• Pack extra business cards. With all the opportunities to meet new people, it’s important to connect.
• Bring a notebook to relay all of the pertinent information you learn back to your team. Everyone (especially your boss) will appreciate it.
