    Good tips. I am heading to TBEX in a couple days and I am a bit nervous. I have been to business conferences before but I am new on the travel blog scene so I am not really familiar with the players yet. Should be fun though!

      Nah, you’ll be great! I asked TBU’s organizer for his tips, and he said it’s absolutely important to be yourself. Hope my experience will makes yours less shaky – wish I could go, too!

    Despite having been to Farm and Food conferences, I think I would feel intimidated, like you about a blogging conference. I know I want to take bigger steps with my own blog but feel at a loss (INTIMIDATED) by how to go about it!

    Good for you on taking those baby steps- poco a poco.

    Great intro to your time at the conference, Cat. I know I would have had the same shyness at first, and I’d wager that you weren’t the only one at the event to feel intimidated, either. Thanks for sharing your tips!

    I’m glad to have found this post. Great tips. We’d like to attend a conference in the coming year and I’m a bit nervous about what to expect. Good to know that I may not be the only one feeling that way. We’ve had our business cards since day one of getting started, so that’s at least one less thing to worry about…as long as we remember to pack enough with us :-)

      Glad you found it, too (means I’m doing something right with SEO!). I was completely and utterly overwhelmed when I signed up, and the first few moments were nerve-wracking. Still, I learned tons and made a lot of great connections, so here’s hoping you’ll make it to a conference somewhere down the line. And don’t forget all of your gadgets, either!!

    Thanks, Cat, this is helpful for me, and makes me excited to go to my first one!! I am glad that I come from a sales background. I am a master at elevator pitches!
