- Shelly says wear comfortable shoes! The floor is carpeted, but it’s a large event and if you want to see everything, then you will be doing plenty of walking.
- Plan your day according to the schedule listed online. There are a lot of seminars and workshops going on at the same time, so you will need to pick and choose what you want to see more. You will be given a floor layout when you arrive at the show. Plus, if you commit to a seminar you need to not leave it early to go off to something else. Sit through the entire speaker because its very rude to walk out on someone.
- Bring your business cards and some cash. All vendors will take both cash and charge, however the lines are going to be so busy and if you want to buy from many different vendors, then having cash will get you through the lines faster. Also, the business cards go back to what Shelly said in the interview about networking. You never know who you will meet and the event is so faced paced…you don’t want to be trying to write down your contact info for someone.
I hope to see you at The Makeup Show!! I will be attending the show on Sunday, March 19th.
