We don’t know about you, but we’re counting down to the 2019 WOMA Trade Show & Convention. If you plan to attend, it’s time to start thinking about what to pack. Of course, you’ll want to bring the basics such as toiletries clothes, but to get the most out of your experience, there are some additional things to consider.
Something dressy for casino night. Casino Night is Tuesday, June 18 from 8-10 PM. This is an opportunity for WPMA members to get dressed up and mingle with friends and colleagues, all while supporting a good cause. You don’t have to go as far as a tuxedo, but we do recommend suits, ties, and evening gowns. After all, to spend a night in Monte Carlo, you have to look the part.
Athletic or golf clothing. Will you be participating in this year’s WOMA golf tournament? If so, make sure you bring the appropriate golf attire. Temperatures usually don’t climb above 75, but be sure to pack a wide-spectrum SPF sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat. Feel free to bring your own clubs too, or you can rent them when you get to Rope Rider Golf Course.
Business cards and networking info. The WOMA convention and trade show presents a one-of-a-kind opportunity to network with your fellow petroleum marketing professionals, so don’t forget a stack of business cards. Trade LinkedIn pages, websites, or social media accounts. Get to know each other, collaborate, and see what happens!
Note-taking supplies. Whether you prefer an electronic tablet or pen and paper, you’ll want to take notes. Jot down key insights and data, then reflect on them once you get home. Sure, taking notes requires a little extra effort, but it’s worth it.
A positive attitude. At WOMA, we’re all about having a good time. Arrive at the convention with a smile on your face and treat everyone just like you want to be treated. We strongly believe our professional community is one of the best around, so let’s show it off by being good stewards and attendees.
