Conference Travel Survival Guide

by Jeremy Schoemaker on October 16, 2012 · 15 comments

Right now I am on a 3 hour layover in Minneapolis on my way to Las Vegas Pubcon.

Make no mistake I still dislike Pubcon and believe it would be of no value to people getting started.  However, a lot of my old friends still attend so I continue to go for the parties/networking.

If you are attending and see me say hi!  I love hearing from readers,  what they are up to,  and steal there I ideas (I kid, I kid).

Here are some conference travel tips:

Scared to fly - u scared?

What to tip - How much should you tip your hotel maid / cab ?

Bathroom - Bathroom Airport Review (this made the front page of reddit and dig).

Conference Travel Tips - my conference travel tips.

Rebecca Kelley’s Travel Tips - Guest Post by seasoned conference veteran Rebecca Kelley.

Conferences are a great opportunity to meet friends, but it is also a hard time for all the preparation involved. Especially traveling/tickets arrangements, that are the worse part in my opinion. Thanks for sharing some tips to better enjoy these events.

I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your blog?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.

Maybe you could space it out better?
