Attending an industry conference for the first time and on your own can be a bit daunting.

In the lead up to the conference, you will be assigned an ITM Ambassador who will be your ITM Conference Buddy. Your ITM Buddy will be in touch with you prior to the event and welcome you to Brighton.

ITM First Timers Get together – is an exclusive get together for delegates who have never been to an ITM Conference before, or for those who are attending on their own. We will introduce you to the ITM Board Directors and Ambassadors who will share their top tips to help you make the most of your time at the conference. Taking place before the opening on Tuesday 30 April, this is a unique opportunity to kick-start your conference.

On Tuesday evening at 7.15pm, you have the opportunity catch up with the other First Timers and the ITM Board Directors at an exclusive reception, prior to the Networking Night party.

We’ve put together some handy hints and tips to ensure you make the most of your first Conference:

  1. Register early to catch our Early Bird offer and to ensure you secure accommodation and transfers
  2. Before attending the Conference download the ITM App, this will show the delegate list (you might already know people who are attending!) The ITM App is available on the App Store – on Apple and Android
  3. Wear comfortable shoes!
  4. Remember your business cards as there are lots of opportunities for networking.
  5. If you have any concerns about attending the ITM conference on your own, please contact the ITM team on secretariat@itm.org.uk and we can talk you through what to expect and answer any questions you may have.
