Anyone who has been to a very large conference will understand the critical need to have a pair of very comfortable shoes to wear at the conference. Last year, one of the attendees of the IOD 2007 conference wore a pedometer and says that she racked up 93 km of walking through the week at the Mandalay Bay! That's a LOT of walking in a single week... on floors that are perhaps not the best to walk on.
This past weekend I invested in a pair of super comfortable shoes and am currently wearing them in so that I am prepared for the IOD NA Conference at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. There are now 7 weeks before the conference begins, so that should give me plenty of time to break in this new pair!
Also, if you get certified at the conference or were previously certified, you are welcome to join the Certification Lounge. The Lounge will once again be featuring tables, chairs, food, beverages, and best of all.... free massages! We want to ensure that you are specially rewarded for earning your certification.
The certification exams offered at the conference are also free to attendees.... so arrive prepared so you can be qualified to take advantage of the free massages from day 1.
Come prepared to maximize your comfort!
See you at the conference, I hope!
