Its here! HOW Design Live 2018 starts next week in Boston. Here’s what I’m looking forward to this year.
It’s hard to believe that we’ve made it to the end of April, let alone to HOW Design Live! As our team gets ready to head up to Boston, here are the top three things we are looking forward to at HOW this year:
1. Networking with fellow creatives. With so many creative professionals all gathered in one place, HDL is a great chance to meet and connect with fellow creatives, especially our friends that aren’t local to us.
Tip: Set a goal for yourself to talk to a new person in every session you go to.
2. The interactive exhibit hall. HOW is a really unique conference in terms of how the exhibit hall is set up. Rather than just a series of vendor booths, it’s a truly engaging experience full of interactive activities. Especially exciting this year is the Lego wall that will be next to booth #107, allowing marketers and creatives to come together to unleash their creativity and build AWESOME together!
Tip: The exhibition hall is full of fun activities and chances to win prizes, so try to participate in as many booths as possible. You never know what you may win!
3. Dynamic sessions and keynotes. Probably the highlight of HOW for most attendees is the opportunity to hear from great industry thought leaders. Every speaker, whether they are a keynote, leading a session, or leading a 15-minute Spark session has great insights to help you take the next step in your career.
Tip: Try branching out a little by going to a session on a topic outside of your wheelhouse. This “sneak peek” into another world can help spark your own creativity with a new perspective.
