5 Ways to Prep for a Successful SHRM 2017 in New Orleans

As the best and biggest HR event in the country, the Society for Human Resource Management Conference may seem a bit overwhelming at first glance – but it doesn’t have to be. SHRM 2017 in New Orleans is right around the corner, and TicketsatWork has this tip sheet to make the most of your SHRM experience, whether you’re a first-time attendee or veteran guest.

1) Prepare a game plan – but also be flexible

Before arriving at SHRM, identify your priorities. Schedule in keynote speakers and sessions you absolutely can’t miss. Stick to your plan as much as you can, but if impromptu meetings come up, go for them! Sometimes spur-of-the-moment opportunities turn out to be the most productive. And don’t forget to save some “me” time, whether that means a cup of café au lait and beignets at the legendary Café du Monde or a leisurely stroll through the French Quarter.

2) Wear comfortable shoes.
Gloria Estefan said it best: “Get on your feet! Get up and make it happen!” This sums up SHRM, where you’ll be walking and standing on your feet for most of the day – and, often, into the night. Comfort trumps fashion when it comes to shoes. Forego the fabulous high heels and go for easy-on-your-feet flats or loafers.

3) Bring your business card – digital and traditional

You never know who you’re going to meet at SHRM – a potential company you’d like to work for or a former colleague to reconnect with. Pack more business cards than you think you’ll need (you can never have enough!) and/or have your digital business cards ready to send out. A host of great apps are at the ready, like SnapDat, which gives you the option of creating multiple business cards to suit different needs, and also to record and store contact information; and CamCard, a multi-purpose app that scans and reads business cards and also has note tools so you can keep track of who you meet and their pertinent details.

4) New Orleans is hot – make sure to hydrate

Although the conference will be held inside, you’ll still instantly feel that famous New Orleans humidity every time you step outside. Beat the heat by staying hydrated. Drink plenty of water and carry a bottle – or two – with you. And if you forget, look around for booths that are giving away water bottles.

5) Escape to the TicketsatWork booth

In partnership with Universal Orlando Resort™, TicketsatWork welcomes conference-goers to Booth #3047, where you can take a breather and kick back in a tropical setting, in celebration of the world-class resort’s newest water theme park, Universal’s Volcano Bay. From an interactive photo booth decked out with palm trees to special visits by Universal’s most beloved characters, this is the place to learn more about how TicketsatWork can get your employees on the path to fun – with benefits.

With more than two dozen centers across the U.S., iFLY delivers an amazing simulated flying experience, designed for the whole family!

No parachute.

No jumping.

It’s just you up in the air feeling the thrill of flying.

What’s great about iFLY is that you’re actually flying – minus being all those annoying thousands of feet up in the air!

Hover around, spin, or do a nose dive – just have a blast gliding through the air. How’s that for a first date! Or a fun-filled day with the family!

At iFLY, expert instructors will explain the science and safety behind the wind tunnel technology. You will learn how the high powered fans blow air upward in a cylindrical column to provide you with a flying experience that is so real sky divers themselves have been training in them since 1993.

Learn the insider scoops about body control and hand signals that you’ll need during your test flight. After a lesson with the experts and an instructional video, you will be ready to go!

You’re also going to slide into some fancy flight gear, which only adds to the experience of indoor sky-diving.

Everyone is given a flight suit, goggles, ear plugs, a helmet, knee pads, and elbow pads.

At the end of your adventure your instructor will lead you out of the flight chamber, and present you with a personalized flight certificate. Pictures and videos of your flight will be available for purchase at kiosks near the gear counter.

Grab your savings today from TAW and prepare for an incredible indoor skydiving experience with iFLY!
