The Travelers Conference is right around the corner and as you may have seen on the Travel Nurse Network many people are excited to go. Travel nurses and agencies look forward to this event all year long. Although you may have traveled many places, you may have not traveled to a place quite like Las Vegas.
Below are the top 9 tips to make your Vegas Travelers Conference experience better.
1. Wear Comfortable shoes!
There is a TON of walking in Vegas, so make sure that during conference hours you’re wearing your most comfortable shoes so that you can still walk & dance in the after-hours!
2. Bring your own Business Cards
You are going to meet a TON of new friends. Have an easy way for them to remember you and get in touch after the conference. Having a photo on the cards is also a plus so your new friend can put a face with the name.
3. Distances are further than they appear
I really wish that someone had told me not to walk all the way from the Bellagio to the MGM Grand—sure, it doesn’t LOOK far, but a couple of blocks in and you’ll wonder what made you do it. The Strip is four miles long, and because the buildings are so close together, they appear closer than they really are.
4. Carry a Light Jacket
Even if it’s 110 outside, the temperatures inside and sometimes in the exhibit hall and classrooms get cold. Have a light jacket so you’ll be comfortable in any temperature.
5. Talk to the exhibitors
Find out what after-hour events and activities the agencies are holding and get an invite! With over 70 exhibiting agencies, there is always an opportunity for a Happy Hour, Dinner, or excursion!
6. Leave extra time for Travel from one place to another!
Make sure to factor in time waiting for your transportation. It can take up to 20 minutes or more waiting for a Taxi, especially at peak times.
7. Use Discount Codes and Buddy up!
Buddy up with new friends to get to all the hottest events and save a little!
