I have been traveling all day and I had about 12 hours of airports, boarding this plane and carrying that bag. I am currently speaking at an event in North Carolina and I really enjoy visiting new towns and places that I have never bee before and drink in all that place has to offer. It is part of the perks of having to put up with business travel like the day I just experienced.
I like to get to events and have a set place I can go for dinner and have most of the details worked out for me. Because I have had an all day excursion, it is nice not to have that next bit of problems with deciding where to eat, what parties to go to and what is the next thing. Do you offer a stress free environment for the attendees or event the conference speakers for your event? This could set you apart from other conferences and events that might be competing with yours. Give a stress free itinerary to those tat have been going hard all day to get your event. They will be refreshed when the event opens and will be one of your best evangelists.
