If you ever wondered are there any – instant or not – benefits from attending the conference and whether or not you should be a part of one, let me say this.
Not going to a conference is a big mistake, huge one. And not because you get to travel to some new places and get away from work for some time. Nor that you can get some new and exciting memories. Going to conferences makes you a better person, both professionally and privately. How’s that, you might ask.
Well, let me tell you this about the first day of #SparkMe conference. Just by being here, for the second time in a row, made me realize (more) of my own potential. Being among such inspirational people, speakers, organizers, attendees made me see the wider picture and inspired me to reach out and show more of who I am.
Talking to people, interacting and connecting with them on the spot and through social improved the reach of the conference but also helped me in portraying who I am as a marketing professional. Showed people more of who I am and how I do what I do. And that is something you can put as one of the instant benefits of attending the conference.
Recognition and re-empowering of your own worth. Then, there’s value in connecting and networking from significant people from the industry. And not to forget about all the opportunities that may come afterwards. In new knowledge, business deals and improving your own skills. Priceless.
So, to sum it up, some of the instant key benefits of attendig the conference are:
- new knowledge
- business opportunity
