Preparing for the Summit

Before BIMS

  • Download the SIIA Events app and let it guide you through the conference.
  • Register early and bring 3+ colleagues to save $$.
  • BIMS hotel fills up quickly, so book travel asap.
  • Review the schedule and pick a backup session, in case your first choice is full.
  • Learn more. Attend sessions outside your area or specialty.
  • What to pack: tons of business cards (BIMS is all about networking.); business casual attire; comfortable shoes, jacket or sweater for air-conditioned meeting rooms; extra space in your luggage for take-home goodies.

Your Best BIMS

  • Arrive early to explore the hotel and settle in.
  • Login to wi-fi before sessions start.
  • Network by sitting with new people at sessions and attending as many meals and breaks as possible.
  • Speak up, ask questions – make the most of your BIMS.
  • Running low on charge? No problem. Visit our sponsors while your device is at the charging station.
  • Participate on social media with our hashtag #BIMS20.

After the Conference

  • Follow up with your new friends on LinkedIn and email.
  • Pre-register for BIMS 2021.
