This will be one of biggest events you will ever attend in your lifetime. There will be a lot to do and see. The days will be long with lots of networking opportunities. Get plenty of rest before arriving in Las Vegas. Do not arrive worn down.

While on the show floor, remember to drink plenty of water and schedule breaks now and then to recharge.

4 Wear the right attire and comfortable shoes

Business casual and dressing comfortably with comfortable shoes is key to an enjoyable CONEXPO-CON/AGG. Grab a light jacket as you head to the show. Besides getting a bit cold on the show floor, March in Las Vegas still gets nippy in the evenings. Also remember to Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!

8 Open your mind to new possibilities

You've done your homework and have your list of must-see exhibitors and products you want to connect with. However don't get hung up on just visiting "your manufacturers". One thing you will be glad you did, is to open your mind to meeting new exhibitors and looking into products you've never heard of.

9 Take time to have some fun

Like any veteran vistor will tell you, no one comes to Vegas to spend time in their hotel room. Las Vegas is a premier hospitality destination with tons of things to do and see. Take a walk along the Strip, see a show or simply pig-out at a buffet. One or two of those is vital to having a positive show experience. Just remember, What happens in Vegas doesn't always stay in Vegas.

With that said, also try and get some sleep whenever you can. You'll need it.

10 Take advantage of the FREE Transportation
