      PRO TIPS

      1. DOWNLOAD the LINKEDIN APP - You will be networking all throughout AWS so make sure not to miss any opportunities to follow through with your new leads. Download the LinkedIn app to connect with prospects on the conference floor, and get the conversation started.  New sales to follow!
      2. DOWNLOAD THE AWS EVENTS APP - with this in your back pocket, you can scroll through upcoming seminars, remind yourself of keynotes on the docket and stay in tune with all of the perks and benefits of the conference PLUS have immediate access to an event map. 
      3. DON'T OVERLOAD YOUR SCHEDULE - We get it. You want to be signed up for all of the best sessions RIGHT NOW but, once you arrive, you will begin to navigate the conference in an entirely different way. Leave room for extra sessions you didn't anticipate, time for networking or connecting with prospects and even some fun social outings to give you the breathing break you need. 
      4. SHOES - you will be hauling yourself all over the conference and all over Vegas. Save the heels for your nighttime dinner, and those custom Italian loafers for a car ride to the restaurant after hours. Wear something you can walk in...all day...and all over.
      5. BEST NETWORKING/COCKTAIL EVENT - The Pub Crawl - VIEW HERE
      6. BEST GETTING ACTIVE EVENT - 4K & 8K Run - VIEW HERE
