Are you planning to attend TravCon 2023? Taking place each September in the booming city of Las Vegas, this event is the largest traveling healthcare conference in the country. It offers attendees a fun atmosphere with networking opportunities, engaging speakers, exciting freebies, and more.
Below is a list of suggestions to make sure you get the most out of your trip to TravCon this year.
Make a list.
In preparation for TravCon, many companies will publish their booth numbers well in advance. Creating a list of exhibitors you want to visit, as well as their booth numbers, will be helpful, especially if you’re eager to collect all the freebies and giveaways – a fan favorite for attendees.
Leave room in your luggage or pack an extra bag.
How do you plan to handle all the freebies you’ll bring home from TravCon? Make sure you leave some luggage space or bring an extra duffle bag 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 speakers 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 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 are 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 will meet many new faces while having fun and connecting with other travelers and healthcare professionals. Be sure to join any Facebook groups so you can know when these parties are happening – 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 challenging, but TravCon makes it easy, and you can tackle those while you’re there. They’ve truly thought of it all!
TravCon 2023 will be the place to be September 17th-20th. We hope this list helps you get the most out of your experience in Vegas. Will you be there? We can’t wait!
