I attend 3-5 research conferences a year. If I am lucky, 1 per year turns out great. What makes a conference great?
Personally, I do my absolute best to be “all in” and engage in every single thing the conference has to offer me during the time it takes place. As someone working to build a business and a career in the research industry, conferences are the best opportunity available to get research education, build my network, and get invigorated about market..
