One of the best things you can do to help yourself grow, and also help your business grow, is to actively attend in-person networking events as often as possible. If you are an entrepreneur, conferences are an incredible way to keep up with new developments in your industry, finding out about beneficial new services, networking with other business owners, and even meeting potential new clients for yourself. You never know who you will meet or what the outcome could be!
Going to every conference ever can be really pricey considering the cost of flights these days. There are some conferences that certainly should not be overlooked though, so here are a few that you should strongly consider checking out!
FailCon is a really unique one-day conference for entrepreneurs, investors, developers, or anyone involved in the world of technology.
Everyone knows everyone's success stories, but no one ever hears about their previous failures and what it took to get there. FailCon is not only great for networking and everything else that a conference should be great for, but it really focuses on putting everything out there on the table. By studying everyone's failures, you can prepare yourself for success. Nothing can teach you how to win like learning how to fail, or how not to.
South By Southwest Interactive
South By Southwest has kind of lost touch with it's roots. It definitely isn't what it used to be, and some view it as more of an excuse to go on vacation and have fun while pretending to still be productive. But honestly, everyone goes, and it's still a fantastic place for networking. Honestly, because of its draw, it may be THE best place for networking and talking to potential clients. That's what this one is all about.
Society of Digital Agencies Global Member Meeting
Society of Digital Agencies Global Member Meeting is an invite only event where SoDA members can gather and network. The company itself basically represents the top companies and gives everyone an opportunity to unite and share their knowledge. This is great because everyone wins in the end. By collaborating in the business world, you will be able to expand your business to places that you never thought to be possible.
Digital Life Design conference
The Digital Life Design conference is actually right around the corner. It starts on May 1st in New York City. The conference brings industry leaders, startups and creative minds from all over the world together for one event. This year is extra special because it will be the first year that it will be in the United States. It is one of Europe's leading conferences, and we finally get to experience it right here in America. This is one that you for sure will want to attend.

1. Reserve your technology as early as possible.
We all know that a big component of stress is last minute planning. So do yourself a favor and don't put off that call to your Tech Travel Agent to get your quote and or reservation started. It's way easier than you think, so just do it! The sooner you book your event rental needs the sooner you can get onto your next project, even if that project is simply to get out of the office and get started on the weekend!
2. If you don't know exactly what type of hardware you need, ask, don't guess.
Not being technically savvy does not need to cause you stress. Simply explain your project to your Tech Travel Agent and let them suggest, or investigate further, to determine the most cost effective rental hardware solution for your event. Communication really does matter, so tell your story and don't hesitate
to ask for advice. It's what a Tech Travel Agent does, so let them.
3. Plan to have your order set up and tested at least two days in advance.
No instructor wants to walk into a classroom full of employees and start off the class by asking.. Does everyone have shortcut to our new HR software on their desktop? So whenever the situation permits, have your equipment delivered at least two days in advance to allow your staff, or instructors, time to familiarize themselves with the equipment, to make sure everything is in working order, and make any "last minute" adjustments way in advance of the event start date.
4. If you have a large quantity order, ask about the policy for spare equipment.
When placing a larger order for any technology, ask about having one or more spare systems left onsite in case of an emergency. Let's face it, bad things can happen to good people. Know that and ask what your Tech Travel Agent can do to help by adding in some spares.
5. Only trust your technology rental to an established national firm.
Finally, and perhaps most importantly, knowing the technology for your event is being delivered and set up by a trusted national rental firm is invaluable when it comes to eliminating stress! So when you talk to your Tech Travel Agent ask if they do business nationwide. Ask if your equipment will be delivered and serviced locally. Trust your gut when it comes to the basics, such as: Does their website look like something your 15 year old nephew would design? (No offense to 15 year olds) When you call do you always get a real person or just a voice mail? Is the quote itemized with a detailed description of each product so you know exactly what you are paying for? Does the rental firm you’re considering have an established social presence with the number of followers/fans you imagine a national firm would have? Do their social sites have continuous updates stretching back years? In general, remember "If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck and walks like a duck, it's a duck". Since we all know doing business with ducks is stressful.. just don't do it! You deserve the best service and support on your technology rental so be sure you trust a technology rental provider before you reserve your equipment!
