Additionally check the attendees and exhibitor lists, the people you are interested in meeting, and the names of the speakers and guests. This will help you during the introductory session, and the entire conversations during the event will also benefit from the in-depth research that you will do.

Don’t wait until the event-day; instead, let people know that an event is coming up. Contact the people that you are interested in meeting with, as mentioned earlier through various channels like emails. Tell them that you will be in attendance and demonstrate the interest to meet them. Additionally, you can call them or create a post on your social media to let them know of the event.

People will want to shoot a photo with you, and looking smart would be great. Talking about organizing the team, take them out for a work event for some days, and then choose who will drive the event.
