4. Use Technology to Your Advantage
Most presenters will use some type of technology to present their topic. Many will offer to share their presentation via email. Take them up on this! You will save yourself some time note-taking and have a reference at your fingertips once the conference is over. For avid note-takers, bring a laptop, if possible. Sessions are usually fast-paced, so technology can help to jot some notes as you wish. This will also come in handy if you are sharing information will your colleagues. Presenters are also usually open to you taking pictures of their slides. Use your cell phone to snap a shot of the ideas you really want to highlight. You can even embed these pictures into a document for sharing as well.
