Tips for SITS: The Ultimate Survival Guide to SITS 2018
SITS is back! We at Ivanti are prepping our swag and breaking in our shoes for the biggest event on the ITSM calendar!
Here is our survival guide to help you get the most out of SITS this year.
1. Plan your route
With thousands of IT professionals making their way to attend SITS and InfoSecurity, public transport is the best option. Plan your route
2. Check out who is exhibiting
This allows you decide who you want to see on the day and ensures that you don’t miss seeing your favorite vendor. Ivanti is on stand 310!
3. List all of the keynotes you would like to see
Sounds simple, right? However, there are some very exciting sessions happening this year, and prior planning prevents missing out. Check out the education timetable here.
4. Pre-book product demos and product trials
Hopefully by this point you will have decided which vendors you plan on speaking to. Pre-booking a demo allows you to see an uninterrupted product demo and skip the crowds.
5. The early bird catches the worm
The doors open 9:30 a.m. By arriving early you can skip the crowds and explore the exhibition floor. This also allows you to grab some early swag and nab a seat in the keynote theater.
SITS is a very fast-paced event and we will most likely find ourselves looking for the nearest coffee point several times during the event. Don't worry, we've got you covered. Ivanti will be giving out free tea and coffee again this year with the addition of a scoop of liquid nitrogen frozen ice cream. Affogato, anyone?
7. Get social
Start following the official #SITS18 hashtag on Twitter so you can get a feel for what vendors will be exhibiting. It's also a good idea to keep an eye on the hashtag post-event, too, since you will discover content and ideas that you may have missed.
8. Ask about GDPR
With the recent GDPR legislation that will have taken effect, make sure to ask about how the various companies will be using your details and allows you to opt in to any further emails after the show.
9. Wear comfy shoes
Obvious, right? But we have all fallen foul of choosing the wrong footwear!
See you very soon!
