There are several upcoming academic conferences in Marketing and Consumer Research, and I imagine that the same holds true for many other disciplines - Summer is the Conference Season!
Conferences are a great opportunity to meet other scholars, learn about the latest research developments in your area, and present and discuss your own work. Add to that a nice location, a couple of days out of your work routine, and the chance too see old friends from all over the world. Could be great, right? But could also be a nightmare...
That's why I've compiled a list of resources to help you make the best out of the conferences in the upcoming season, or at least go through them without much damage!
What to do before, during, and after a conference
Surviving your first academic conference
Five golden rules
The most complete guide to a successful conference presentation
Strategies for eating well at conferences
How to hack a conference
Many of these selected sources will link to extra resources, so you'll have plenty of advice on how to prepare for conferences. For the sake of comparison (how bad it could be???) just watch the video below and make sure to enjoy your conference season!
