  • joining the AADOM Conference Facebook group
  • attend the 1st Time Attendee meeting and meet fellow first-timers like yourself – Register here
  • make sure you are subscribed to AADOM emails and text messages
  • download the AADOM Conference App for easy access to schedules and updates

Pack Like a Pro! Essentials for a Successful Conference Adventure

Bring plenty of business cards to connect with vendors and make new friends. Dress to impress, but also dress comfortably for a full day of learning and networking. Choose business casual attire that allows you to move freely and layer up with a sweater or jacket to stay cozy in the chilly breakout rooms.

For the evenings, go casual and get ready for the fun themed events. Don’t forget your swimsuit for some poolside relaxation. Leave room in your suitcase (or bring an extra one) to accommodate all the exciting swag you’ll receive.

Be prepared to take notes – whether you prefer a digital tablet, laptop, or a trusty notebook. Most importantly, bring an open mind to absorb all the inspiring ideas and insights.

Enjoy the Ride! Engage and Connect

Don’t miss the AADOM social events – they’re all about connecting and having a blast!

Break the ice and take a seat at tables during breakfast and lunch to meet new friends. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, share your insights, and support your fellow peers. Remember, you have valuable experiences to share and can learn from others too!

Visit the AADOM booth and meet the team to discover more about the organization and its resources.

Take advantage of networking opportunities with our fantastic vendors – they’re here to make your job easier.
