Any convention worth its salt is more than one day long. Pro tip: if you go to a convention and it is only one day, that convention sucks. You better get out of it, because conventions are only worth your time and attention if there is a sleepover portion to the occasion. I am assuming this is well-known axiom is why CARS+ (The California Association of Resource Specialists) chooses to put together a two-conference; otherwise people would automatically know what a stinker it is.
059 – 2014 CARS+ Convention Day 1
Conventions are so cool. Getting together with a bunch of like-minded people to exchange ideas and experiences? Nothing better. Mix the socializing with some fascinating panels and exhibitors, and you find yourself drinking a pretty satisfying cocktail. That is, if you have a vested interest in the convention’s topic. I won’t say outright what my investment level is in the CARS+ convention, but it is a great opportunity to expose myself to new perspectives. Plus, it was free.
