Plan Your Week

Don’t miss a thing happening during HSMAI’s Commercial Strategy Week!

Education Sessions | Speakers | Special Events | Hotel & Travel

A little advanced planning is essential to make your time at any conference a success. HSMAI’s conference teams recommend these top strategies.

  1. Determine your goals for attending. Do you want to learn strategies and tactics to accelerate your company’s recovery? Find a new technology partner? Build brand awareness? HSMAI’s Make the Case to Attend template and ROI Calculator can help you set focused goals so you can prepare accordingly.
  2. Cover all your bases. You can’t be in more than one place at a time, which means there will be many education sessions that you won’t be able to attend. If you come with 2 more members of your team—or a couple friends from other companies—you’ll be able to split up, attend every session, and share your learnings with each other.
  3. About a week before you leave for Orlando, download the conference app. Update your profile (consider linking to your LinkedIn profile) and make connections with other attendees. Once you’re connected, you’ll be able to message each other inside of the app. This is a great way to open your professional circle! While it’s tempting to spend all your time catching up with old friends, there is a lot to be gained from making new connections.
