Thanks to SNAP! Conference for sponsoring today’s #SNAPit Twitter chat, Conference 101. Of course who better to sponsor a chat on conferences than an actual conference? I had so much fun discussing the ins and outs of conference going with some of the best.
Let’s give a SNAPpy round of applause to Ashlee from I’m Topsy Turvy. She is the winner of the Energizer portable battery charger. So if anyone needs a quick re-charge at SNAP! next week we all know who to hit up.
Every week our main focus for #SNAPit is to create an environment that leads to engagement, sharing, learning, and of course a little fun. This is accomplished with a solid topic and great questions. Thank you to this fabulous creative community our numbers steadily rise each week. Our 45 minute chats have so much buzz and positivitiy surrounding them. You can all give yourselves a little BOOYA for making today possible: (reporting the last 24 hours)
Our #SNAPit Twitter chat was a beginners course in everything you want or need to know about conferences. It was wonderful to see veterans and newbies sharings tips and tricks they have learned along the way. And no matter if you are gearing up to attend your 1st or 21st conference… You walked away knowing just a little more today. If you couldn’t make today’s #SNAPit we don’t want you to miss out on all of the information that was shared. Pull up a screen and take a glimpse of what we learned:
Q1-Have you attended a conference before? What makes you the most nervous or excited?
@shabbycreek- I’ve been to a few – now I’m always most excited to see my friends that live all over the country that I rarely see #SNAPit
@eclecticmama- A1: My first conference! I’m psyched, and I have no idea how I’m going to fit everything I want to into 3 days! #snapit
Q2-What are some must have items when traveling to a conference?
@cleverpirate- Comfortable shoes (can’t say this enough), phone charger, bus cards & candy to bribe people to become ur friends. Ha jk #SnapIt
@houseofsmiths- A2 – MUST have business cards, camera, phone and EVERY charger you own… LOL. Everything else can be forgotten #SNAPit
Q3-How do you prepare yourself and your family when are you going to a conference?
@kariandmorgan- um….I just told my husband I was going. He didn’t hvae much say in the matter…. #SNAPit
@bakedbyjoanna- A3 I have meals that have been prepped and frozen to make sure my hubby eats well and healthy while I’m away. #SNAPIt
Q4-What do you hope to take away from a conference? Knowledge? Friends? Connections? Other?
@laralellieg- I hope to get re-energized about what I do. But the friendships have ended up being the MOST important. #snapit
@thesewingloft- A4- new friends, a few new tips and the knowledge that I CAN DO this! #SNAPit
#SNAPit Next Week
Next Thursday, April 19th, 2012 is the opening day of SNAP! Conference. We will not be hosting a #SNAPit Twitter chat that day. We invite you to follow the #SNAPconf hashtag and join in on some of the fun and knowledge. Feel free to chime in over the weekend even if you are not attending this year.
