Get in touch with your contacts before you get to the conference. Make appointments now so that you will have an agenda of people to meet with when you arrive.
2. Start updating your social media feeds
Social media can be a powerful way to make connections with those that you know and those that you don’t yet know.

Use this as an opportunity to bring attention to your legal business and yourself.
3. Attend editors’ and bloggers’ breakfast
These are free events so there is nothing to lose. It will also give you the chance to be exposed to thought leaders in the industry as well as learn about what is coming next. You will get access to dynamic editorial and leadership teams, as well as entrepreneurs working in your industry.
4. Write about your experience
You can write anything from a blog post on your company site to a series of tweets. What is important is sharing your experience. This will not only give you the chance to attract an audience of curious colleagues, but this will also give you another chance to bring attention to your own practice or firm.
