other stuff

What should I wear?

Wear something for networking and attending sessions. Or whatever you’re comfortable in—unless it’s your birthday suit. We’re sure the city frowns upon that. When in doubt, nice jeans and a comfy top are great. Don’t forget a light sweater or jacket in case the rooms are cold.

What should I bring?

Not required, but here are a few of our favorite things for conferences.

  • Business cards
  • Cell phone (for event app & LinkedIn connecting)
  • Lozenges
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Nuun or AirBorne
  • Favorite snickety snack (you’ll need your energy for networking)
  • Refillable water bottle (hydrate!)
  • Note-taking material
  • Light sweater or jacket
  • Chapstick or lip gloss (chatting with chapped lips is no fun)
  • One page/sheet
  • Resume
How can I find a roommate?

Many attendees coordinate to have a roommate to reduce the hotel expenses. Once you purchase a pass to attend MilMoneyCon, you’ll get access to a roommate board to connect with other attendees interested in having a roommate at the conference.

How can I connect with fellow attendees?

There is a conference app MilMoneyCon pass holders will get access to approximately two weeks before the conference start date. The app has the full schedule of events, networking opportunities, and things like coordinating ride-sharing from the airport and images from the conference.
