There are only five weeks to go until this year’s Online Influence conference in Cardiff.
If you haven’t heard of the conference before, it’s a social media and technology event, bringing together speakers and professionals from the industry to share their knowledge.
The conference is in it’s 4th year and is set to be it’s biggest yet, with a sell out crowd for the second year running, the conference boats over 300 delegates and is expecting 500+ attendees on the day.
It’s also the first time they’re bringing speakers from BuzzFeed, WWF UK and Unilever will be visiting the event in Cardiff too, and along with a host of other fantastic guests, it’s a must attend event for any business.
I’ve been lucky enough to attend the last three years, so I’ve pulled together a list of top tips for making the most of the event…
- 10 awesome speakers from some of the top organisations in the UK and beyond
- Learn from experience, what campaigns have worked (and what hasn’t!)
- Be the first to hear about the latest trends in tech, marketing and social
- Meet likeminded marketing professionals and organisations with informal networking
…and get much needed headspace away from the office!
Make the most of the event with these #OiConf tips…
- DO engage with delegates and speakers on Twitter using the hashtag #OiConf, but remember offline conversations are important too
- Check out the speaker’s list in advance, so you can make the most from the event on the day
- Dig deeper and use Linkedin to find out more about the speakers/attendees
- Pack light, but remember the essentials such as notes, pens and an extra battery pack (trust me, you’ll need it)
- Create a Twitter list to add attendees to and/or use IFTTT to automate the process for you
- Keep a clear and open mind, you’ll be inundated with plenty of ideas, so you’ll need the head space
- Participate in as many debates, workshops and talks as possible… you’ll be glad that you did!
I look forward to seeing you all in April!
