Top 5 Conference Tips: Use Social Media to Your Advantage

You can attend any conference for free. While, the traditional way would be to buy your way in, there are other ways to get the conference experience.

  1. Follow the conversation on Twitter by streaming the conference hashtag on your social media dashboard like Tweetdeck or Hootsuite.
  2. Follow Twitter-happy attendees, and there are usually at least a handful of them at every conference.
  3. Take part in a conference-related tweet up outside of the conference space to meet up with attendees in an offline environment.
  4. Follow the official and unofficial blogs for updates, videos and reviews on sessions.
  5. Attend the expo. A lot of times, this part of the conference is free. You can see what trends are happening in the industry by just chatting with vendors and fellow like-minded attendees. Then, follow up with them on LinkedIn or Twitter.
