    I’m getting ready for my 6th TechEd after missing last year’s.  Some of my advice below from over the years:

     

    1. Depending on how organized of a person you are, try not to over-pack your schedule with back-to-back sessions unless they are critical.  Inevitably, you will encounter a speaker or peer customer/partner who you’d like to have conversation with.  I’ve found it invaluable to spend that time while the topic is fresh on my mind, rather than getting a business card and forgetting why I have it when I return to the office.
    2. In TechEd Las Vegas, the air/air-conditioning can dry you out.  Water is your friend and so are eye-drops.  Also, try to get to bed before 3 in the morning.  🙂
    3. Talk and network with other people, while the sessions are worth the price of admission, so is the fact that all these experts and other customers will be convening in one place.  So again, don’t pack your schedule with 100% time spent in lecture rooms or you’ll be burnt out by mid-day Wednesday with information overload.
    4. Research the speakers you are planning to attend sessions on.  While SAP-delivered sessions will tend to focus on the “possible”, ASUG/Customer-delivered sessions will tend to ground into reality what is practical.

      Mike – thank you, great tips, especially this one:
