It can be tempting to skip the orientation and go straight to the action, but resist the urge! This pre-game huddle will help you plan, navigate, and execute your goals for the show. BONUS: you’ll be able to meet and network with other newbies, and maybe even find yourself a solid conference wingman!
Interactive Sessions: More Than Just a Front-Row Seat
Sure, you could attend sessions and play it safe in the back row, but why settle for a spectator seat when you can dive into the action? Interactive sessions are your backstage pass to everything PLRB has to offer. Think of them as engaging workshops where you can throw your thoughts into the mix, ask burning questions, and, most importantly, learn by doing.
Don’t worry about looking like a fish out of water or let yourself get caught up in imposter syndrome. These sessions are designed for participation, not perfection. It’s the ideal space to connect with fellow attendees, share your unique perspective, and maybe even discover that you’re not the only one with a burning curiosity about how to get a Certified Adjuster Designation or why you would want one.
Belfor Party: Where Networking Meets a Good Time
One of the most talked about parts of the PLRB Conference is the Belfor Party. You might be wondering, “What’s the deal with this Belfor Party?” Well, let us tell you, it’s not just any soirée. It’s the ultimate networking extravaganza with a side of laughs. Imagine a room filled with professionals who’ve mastered the art of blending business and entertainment. The Belfor party is where connections are made over anecdotes, meeting mutuals, and perhaps a few cocktails. The kind of party where you share a chuckle before swapping business cards.
PRO TIP: Attendees tend to loosen up a bit here, so it’s the perfect opportunity to strike up conversations with folks you might not encounter in a formal setting. Scan the conference attendee list and see who you’d like to meet. Laughter is the universal language of breaking the ice, and the Belfor party is the perfect place to make it happen.
In a nutshell, your first PLRB conference might feel like stepping into a whirlwind of information and faces. But fear not! Embrace the Sunday orientation, dive headfirst into interactive sessions, and let loose at the Belfor party. The PLRB universe is vast, but armed with these tips, you’re sure to conquer it like a pro. We hope to see you there!
