Microsoft Convergence, the premier business event for Microsoft Dynamics users and partners, is quickly approaching. This jam-packed event is always full of visionary leaders, inspiring sessions, and excitement on the expo floor.
Here are some tips to help you get the most out of attending:
Research the exhibitors/speakers and set up meetings and demos in advance. Pre-event marketing, announcing your participation at Convergence, also helps to promote your attendance via emails, newsletters, blogs, or social media.
Build a team schedule
Convergence can get hectic and with so many sessions, speakers, and exhibitors it will be hard to hear and see everything you’d like. View the session catalog in advance and share your interests with your team. As a group you can divide and conquer to share the knowledge after the event.
You should always have business cards, a pen, and paper on you during tradeshows, but keeping track of leads and discussions is challenging. Prepare a system for tracking if a lead is hot, warm, or cold. This will help you to divide the post-event follow-up communications.
Don’t forget to have fun!
Networking is essential at such a big event—not only for prospecting, but to gain fresh perspectives. After those long days, you deserve to let your hair down and party with One Republic at this year’s Convergence Celebration. A day prior to Convergence, you can give back to Atlanta at the community outreach and feel good in the process.
Education to innovation, breakthrough ideas to solutions, and preparation to celebration – make this the best Convergence experience yet!
