SHRM 2009: Are you Ready?

Are you ready for all that the National SHRM Conference has to offer?  Below are my Top 10 Tips for a successful show:

  1. Wear the most comfortable shoes that you can find – period.  The conference hall is HUGE!
  2. Leave space in your suitcase for all the extra goodies that you’ll bring back with you.
  3. Plan your sessions.  Nothing is worse than realizing the session you were the most interested in just ended.
  4. Make new friends.  Take advantage of the opportunity to network with any of the 7,000 attendees.
  5. Keep a piece of your lunch for a snack.  You never know when that apple or granola bar will come in handy.
  6. Ask questions.  Embrace all that SHRM has to offer by asking peers, presenters, and exhibitors for additional information or clarification.
  7. Take time to see New Orleans.  Check out 101 cool things to do in New Orleans for ideas.
  8. See Sheryl Crow
  9. Visit the Exhibit hall for information, inspiration, and goodies.
  10.  HAVE FUN!
