It’s the start of another exciting conference and tradeshow season here at Taylor Studios! Ideas and trends will be shared, we’ll get to reconnect with old friends and we’re looking forward to making new friends too.
Attending a conference within your trade can be a magical experience. Improving your skills, increasing your industry knowledge, and taking in fantastic workshops and motivational speakers can be incredibly rewarding. The real magic, though, is in the connections formed with the people you meet at conferences.
Conferences bring people together from all aspects of your industry. Fellow professionals that are well connected to industry trends are ready to help solve problems. When an issue arises, you have a wealth of resources to reach out to and find the right solutions. Building your professional rolodex through networking gives you access to wonderful tools as you progress through your career. Contacts that you make at a conference can serve as references for potential jobs, a sounding board to help you in your current role, or even turn into a lasting friendship.
When people come together, our industries only become stronger. We become better. Take full advantage and get to know the person sitting next to you at the next workshop, at lunch or even at an evening event. Bring the magic of all you’ve learned back with you to your desk with renewed passion and excitement.
