Blog/Tips to Make the Most of Your TravCon Experience
Are you planning to attend TravCon this year? The Traveler’s Conference is the largest traveling healthcare conference and happens each year in September in the booming city of Las Vegas. The conference isn’t what it sounds like, it’s always a fun atmosphere with networking, speakers, freebies and more.
We came up with this list of suggestions to make sure you get the most out of your trip to TravCon this year.
Make a list!
Maybe you’re looking to learn more about the companies that are planning to attend. Most companies know and publish their booth numbers well in advanced so creating a list of which exhibitors you want to visit and their booth numbers will come in handy. Especially when you’re wanting to collect all of your freebies and giveaways – which is always a fan favorite for people attending. Leave room in your luggage or pack an extra bag. What are you going to do with all the freebies you’ll be returning home with? Make sure you leave some luggage space or pack an extra packable duffle or backpack with you so you can transport all of your new gifts home. Some companies may even give you a new backpack or bag.
Listen and learn.
TravCon has a long list of industry professionals who will be speaking at the conference. Check out the list of them online and again – make a list! Mark off who you’d like to hear speak at the conference and plan to spend your week getting tons of new knowledge, insight, inspiration and more from these wonderful people sharing their stories and expertise.
What’s a trip to TravCon without all of the after parties?! Most companies will advertise free events (many with free food and drinks) to anyone who attends the conference. Some of these are open to all travelers regardless of which company you’re currently working for but chances are, your company is also hosting an extra party specifically for their current travelers (Trustaff is!) These after parties are always the highlight of the trip as you’ll meet many new faces, have fun and connect with other travelers and healthcare professionals. Be sure to join any Facebook groups to be the first to know on when these parties are happenings – as many require an RSVP.
Make sure to purchase a ticket.
Tickets to the event are available now and often sell out each year – so don’t wait! You can also add on things to your ticket such as hikes, golf outings and more to get extra time to connect with the TravCon crew and other healthcare travelers and professionals. In addition, the conference also hosts certification courses. Being a traveler, finding the time or place to do these mandatory certifications can be hard, but TravCon makes it easy and you can tackle those while you’re there. They’ve really thought of it all!
TravCon will be the place to be come September 17-20th. We hope this list makes sure you get the most out of your experience in Vegas. Will you be there? We can’t wait!
