If you’re headed to Dallas for our second annual user conference on Sunday, you’ll want to download the mobile app and start planning ahead now. If you’re not attending, there’s still time to join hundreds of other professionals at this event.

A little preparation now can make all the difference in what you get out of your time at Outlook 2016. Here are five tips on what you can do before landing in Dallas:

  1. Set Goals – Chances are, you’re attending Outlook to learn something. What specifically do you hope to achieve? Do you want to learn about a particular regulation? Are you looking for ways to better use products that you already have? Whatever the case, you will help yourself by writing down everything it is you hope to achieve. It’s easy to get caught up in the conference excitement and lose sight of what you came there to do. If you want to speak with someone in particular, use our mobile app to browse attendees and send messages to those with whom you want to connect.
  2. Plan Your Breakout Sessions – Content is the #1 reason most people will be attending Outlook. Make sure that you are going to the sessions that best align with your business goals. Some people prefer to stay within a certain track, but we recommend that you browse sessions within all tracks to ensure you cover your bases. Are multiple people from your company attending? Divide and conquer so that you can collectively bring back all the information you need to perform better in 2016.
  3. Understand Who Is Attending – Our app has two searchable features you’ll want to check out. In the Networking section, you can search by keyword, last name, or company. Once you find people you want to contact or remember, you can favorite them, write them a message, or record notes about them. You can also search for speakers in the Speakers section of the app.

    Don’t forget to browse the exhibitor and sponsor list and plan to stop by the Partner Pavilion and Innovation Showcase. Select the Exhibitor icon in the Outlook mobile app to view sponsor and exhibitor company names, logos, descriptions, websites, and booth numbers. Be sure to pinpoint which companies you’d like to meet, and keep your mind open to partners with whom you’re not as familiar.

  4. Connect – There will be numerous networking opportunities during the course of the event in person, but don’t forget about online networking! Identify people you want to connect with using our mobile app. And use our conference hashtag #OmnitracsUC to share your photos and thoughts about the conference with everyone. The best tweets and Instagram shots will be displayed on the big screen during the conference.
  5. Ask Questions – Attending one of our two Regulatory FAQ sessions? Submit your regulatory questions through the app and we’ll cover as many as we can in the sessions. Be sure to ask questions when you have the opportunity to do so in breakout sessions and in the Partner Pavilion. Customers with technical questions should ask Registration where to find the Customer Support Center.
