3 Pro Tips for the AACC Meeting & Expo Preparation
1. Scrutinize the Poster Presentation & Exhibitor Lists
Whether your goal is to network and identify suitable products for your venture, or immerse in a deluge of poster presentations, familiarizing yourself with the attendees and their contributions helps you register for your choice sessions and/or arrange meetings with pertinent vendors.
For expo attendees, this comprehensive guide on the AACC website is invaluable. It helps you identify the participants, their exhibits, and their precise locations within the convention center.
If your week is set to be saturated with scientific presentations, we suggest researching the poster abstracts. Personally, we're thrilled about the upcoming breakthroughs in the diagnostic sector. What are you looking forward to the most?
2. Stay Tuned to Social Media for Pertinent Updates
In line with most contemporary conferences, the AACC ensures that its social media platforms stay updated with essential information beneficial before and during the conference. We advise keeping a tab on Twitter and Facebook, or joining the LinkedIn group for timely updates or announcements concerning the conference. Additionally, the conference organizers offer a sign-up option for anyone preferring email updates.
Once at the conference, to share your learnings or interact with other attendees, remember to follow and use the conference hashtag (#2023AACC).
3. Devise a Networking Strategy
One of the best aspects of a conference is the opportunity to meet industry partners from across the globe - people you don't interact with daily. Swap the Zoom calls for an in-person networking plan. Confer with your partners face-to-face, catch up, and discuss the latest in your businesses. Want to know who's attending? Take the initiative and email your friends/partners ahead of the event and peruse the exhibitor list to identify the participating companies.
