Have a Plan
When you are attending an event of this scale, you need a plan for your day. With 23 conferences to choose from and over 1,000 speakers, there are endless options for what to do.
You can't do it all, but you can certainly plan to make the most of your time. Make a plan for which conferences you would like to attend, and which speakers you would like to see from each conference. And just in case, make a backup plan too.
You may not hit everything you wanted to do on your list, but with a plan you will likely see much more than without one. Events like this are made to help you. Choose which events you would most like to go to based on your needs and interests.
Don't Skip Portable Chargers
The Web Summit is an all day event with over 60,000 people. Chances are, you will have openings to do some networking, have some photo opportunities and even could meet some keynote speakers and influencers.
You want your smartphone or tablet to be charged for chances like this. Networking connections might need to be added on LinkedIn. Plus, who doesn't want a selfie with their favorite thought leader?
To ensure your device stays charged throughout the long day, bring a portable charger along with you to the Web Summit. Zendure A2 is a great choice if you want to keep the portable charger in your pocket. As small as a deck of cards, this portable charger will keep your smartphone powered all day long.

Don't Forget Your Bag
While a bag is always useful when it comes to carrying your technological equipment, at the Web Summit Conference you need a bag for a few different reasons.
Exhibition stands means freebies from companies you admire. You can get a lot of practical items such as USB drives and useful information in leaflets at events like the Web Summit. Bring your bag so you aren’t walking around with an armful full of these items.

So go out and talk to people. Talk to the press if the opportunity arises, and keep an eye out for notable speakers you can start a conversation with.
