Are you ready for this year’s Content Marketing Conference? Like the previous conferences, this one promises to be simply awesome with your chance to network, learn new things, and have fun. Whether you’re an old hand at this or whether this is your first CMC conference, you’re sure to get plenty of useful information, good connections, and loads of fun. Given that the CMC is jam-packed into four days, it’s important to be prepared for it. This is why we’ve come up with a prep list for the CMC 2019.
The Basic List
Whether you’re a seasoned traveler or a rank newbie, it’s important to make a plan to get the most out of CMC this year. The bare basics include the following:
Decide How Long You’re Going to Stay in Boston
You may be thinking you might just breeze in for the conference and head home when it’s over. That’s fine, but Boston has a lot going for it with it’s history, culture, and amazing food. You’d be remiss if you didn’t enjoy some of that. So, plan to stay a few days before the conference or after the conference and enjoy what Boston has to offer. Since CMC goes Tuesday through Friday, it’s simple to add a weekend to either side of the conference, or if you’re looking for several days of enjoying the sights, no one says you can’t enjoy both weekends around the conference.
Register for the Conference
Preregister for the conference and get your discount seat which includes all events, workshops, and keynote speakers. You’ll save hundreds of dollars if you preregister before April 15th.
Get Your Travel Plans Squared Away
Whether you’re coming by plane, train, or car, be sure to have your reservations confirmed. If you’re coming in by plane or train, you may want to reserve a rental car, especially if you’re taking time to see the sights in and around Boston.
Book Your Hotel Room
Sounds like a no-brainer, but to don’t cut it too close to the wire when it comes to booking your hotel room. Naturally, you’ll want to stay at the conference hotel, which will make it easier to get to the conference and meet people afterwards.
The Savvy Conference Goer
Naturally, you want to get everything you can out of the Content Marketing Conference, so we’ll offer tips for how to make the most of your conference.
Get Those Business Cards Packed
You better check your stash of business cards now and make sure you have enough for CMC 2019. There’s nothing worse than running out of business cards after you’ve met the perfect contact for your business. We take that back: what may be worse is having business cards with old information that you must scratch off and write in the new information. Don’t be unprofessional. Make sure you have enough cards with the right contact information.
Register for the Parties
Not everything is work at the CMC 2019, so you’ll want to make sure that you register for the parties. Whether you’re just enjoying relaxing around like-minded individuals or looking for extra networking opportunities, the parties are the place to go.
Plan Your Conference
Unfortunately, you won’t be able to attend every workshop, so now is the time to plan your conference and choose the must-not-miss workshops and programs that will help you get ahead in your content marketing. By having a plan for the conference, you’re more likely to be productive and get more out of the CMC than simply showing up.
Plan Your Clothing for Boston Weather
Make sure you consider Boston weather. Most of the time, you can expect early April Boston weather in the 50s, and late April weather in 60s, but it has been known to snow even in April. Bring a coat, umbrella, and boots to be on the safe side, especially if you’re planning on seeing the sights before or after the conference.
