What to Bring to the Conference: Checklist!

Social Media Day Halifax 2019 is almost here! Friday, June 21st, is the summer solstice and will be the longest day of the year but we’re aiming for short lines at the door.

Do you know what to bring to the conference? That morning is going to be a change from your regular routine. It’ll be early and you’re a busy person, so we want to help. This checklist will help you get prepped in advance and out the door quickly on June 21st.

The first thing you might be wondering is WILL THERE BE COFFEE? Yes! We’ll have coffee and tea waiting for you first thing in the morning this year. There will be handy refill stations if you bring your own travel cup.

What You MUST Bring!

  • your ticket! 2 options: be prepared to display your ticket on your phone (link in ticket email you received after purchase) OR print your ticket and bring it with you. Your ticket contains a QR code which we’ll use to scan you quickly through the door.

Here are some of the other things you might want or need to bring.

What You Need To Feel Good and Network With Ease

  • travel mug
  • breath mints
  • business cards
  • some good conference networking tips
  • lip balm
  • a light jacket or sweater (think: theatres and air conditioning)
  • a smile (and whatever else makes you feel great in photos)

What You Need To Capture The Day And Connect On Social Media

  • your smartphone – make sure it’s charged up the night before!
  • portable charger
  • selfie light / portable mic (if you use them)
  • selfie stick, monopod, tripod (if you use them)
  • posts on Twitter, Instagram and your Facebook Page with the conference hashtag #SMDH19

What You Need To Make the Most of the Sessions and Workshops

  • a pen
  • your questions
  • everyone will receive a conference notebook at morning check-in!

What you DON’T NEED to Bring:

  • a lunch
  • snacks (unless there’s something you can’t do without)

We’re excited to welcome you to Cineplex Scotiabank Theatre Halifax in Bayer’s Lake on June 21st. You’ll find us right at the box office waiting to check you in when you arrive.

There’s a morning coffee break at 9:40 am, a boxed lunch at noon, and a popcorn break at 2:50 pm. What’s a theatre visit without refreshments and popcorn?

Are there specific sessions or workshops you’re hoping to see? You can check out the full conference program to map out your day. You’ll be the hero of your own adventure, so expect to be digitized! There’ll be hundreds of smartphones in action, a lot of selfies snapping, some photo booth fun, loads of content capturing and tweeting or Insta-posting with the hashtag #SMDH19.

Did we forget anything on your list? Are you excited? We are! Tickets are on sale until midnight on Wednesday, June 19th unless we sell out beforehand. We’ll see you soon.
