Next week is CANA's 99th Annual Cremation Innovation Convention and we plan to take New York by storm! Here are a few tips so you can be ready to join us in the City that Never Sleeps:
Step 1.) Pack Right
CANA events are business casual so you can feel professional but comfortable networking with industry peers all day. And bring layers – your cardigan, blazer, or sweater – just in case!
Step 2.) Download the CANA Events App
The new CANA Events app is available on the iPhone and Android to guide you through the event (check your email for login instructions). Track your CE with ease, get push notifications about upcoming sessions, give instant feedback about the event, and have exhibitor and speaker information at your fingertips.
Step 3.) Prepare to Network
Come ready to get answers to your business questions. 1.) Download speakers’ handouts from the app, read over their bios, and think about what you want to learn from their sessions. 2.) Review the exhibitor list and make a plan for who you want to meet – you never know who will have a solution to a problem you never thought of. and, 3.) Be ready to socialize! This event is for people who strive to learn more about the business of cremation and how to maximize its opportunities. Attendees will come from all over the world with ideas and experiences to share so get ready to join the conversation.
And, of course, don’t forget your convention essentials: business cards, pen, notepad, and smartphone (because we know business never stops just because you’re not there!).
Step 4.) Make the most of New York
Come on, it’s New York City! Take a bite out of the Big Apple.
