First Business Conference

Posted by Kirby Turner on June 11, 2005

I’m spending the weekend in Atlanta at my first business related conference. Conferences I have attended in the past were technology related such as the Borland Developer Conference and Microsoft PDC so I wasn’t sure what to expect.

I definitely see a difference beyond the topics at this conference compared to the developer conferences I’ve attended in the past. For one, attendees at a business conference tend to dress better than the t-shirt and jeans geek crowd of dev cons. Another difference is the ease of networking. It is very easy to approach people at the event. I have already met a number of people, which makes the event more enjoyable. It’s comforting feeling like you are surrounded by friends.
