How do you prepare for a conference?

STC is providing quite a bit of helpful information in advance of the Summit. Attendees will find most everything they need here.

And this should come first, but remember to give your family a bit of extra love before leaving for the event. Take them out to dinner, and/or give the little ones some extra fun.

Give everyone a chance to connect while you’re on the trip via Skype video, so they can stay in touch. It makes it easier.
