These days, there are conferences galore for administrative professionals. In recent years, they’ve sprung up in every corner of the world ranging dramatically in price, duration and content. Some offer very intimate experiences in peaceful settings while others host thousands of assistants in exotic destinations.
As you know, attending an administrative conference is an investment of your time and your organization’s money. So how do you get the best return on your investment? With so many options, how do you decide which conference is best for you and which one will truly meet your personal and professional needs?
There are numerous factors to take into consideration when deciding which administrative conference to attend. For example, what type of environment is most conducive to your learning style? Do you like high energy experiences or slower moving events? Do you care about the speakers’ expertise or is the location the most important consideration?
Answering these questions (and more) will help you get the greatest value and ensure you have a memorable experience.
