Why Sign Up for the Buddy System?
First-Timers: ILTACON is exciting, invigorating and inspiring … but it can also be overwhelming your first time. With the ILTACON Buddy System, a conference veteran will advise you on making the most of the educational sessions, networking events, and exhibit hall. They may even introduce you to other peers in similar job roles.
Veterans: Remember what it was like wandering into your first ILTACON? You can help make sure a first-time attendee hits the ground running and has a productive week. If that’s not enough, you'll be energized through the fresh perspective of a first-time attendee and fine-tune your leadership skills.
