Pre-Event: Pack Your Bags and Get Ready for Fun!

Download the Mobile App
Get the App

The mobile app is your hub and navigation tool for everything IT Nation Connect. Search for "IT Nation Events" in your app store.

Plan Your Day

Find sessions and network with fellow conference attendees in the app.

Enable Push Notifications

The app is the only place to receive live updates, announcements, and changes while the event is in action.

Breakout Sessions
Pick a Track

With numerous sessions to choose from each round, we have organized them into six tracks to help you decide which sessions you can’t miss.

Filter Sessions

Be sure to use the filters on our session page to help you identify what session is the best fit for you and your business.

Plan Ahead

Double check the mobile app to see if your sessions of choice will be recorded (for you to watch later) or will repeat in in later rounds.

First Come, First Serve

Breakout session rooms can fill up fast and are first come, first serve seating—so it helps to have a backup plan if the session you choose is very popular.

What to Pack
Think Casual

IT Nation Connect is a casual conference—think company polo and jeans.

Walking Shoes

The venue is spread out, so wear comfy shoes and get ready to hit your step count for the day!

Light Layers

Halloween in Orlando can be warm outside during the day—which means chilly conference rooms inside. Plan to bring some light layers to transition between temperatures.

On-Site: You Have Arrived at IT Nation Connect!

Go to Registration
First Stop

Your first stop when arriving at IT Nation Connect should be the registration booth. There you can pick up your conference badge, get your conference swag, and ask any questions you might have about event logistics. Registration opens Wednesday, October 30 at 7:00 am.

Lost Badge?

Lose your badge during a late night? 😉 Head back to registration and get a reprint.

First Timers Orientation

You won’t want to miss our First Timers Orientation to get the lay of the land and meet other IT Nation Connect first timers! Join us in Orlando L on Wednesday, October 30 at 3:00pm.

Ask a ConnectWise Colleague
We're Here to Help

At peak times throughout the event, our colleagues will be stationed around the conference to help you with any questions you have on-site. Look for signs that say “Need Help? Ask Me!” We encourage you to ask them—they are here for you. You can also stop any of us in the hallway for help. We want to make this a great experience for you!

Customer Success Bar

Don't forget to stop by the Customer Success Bar! Here you can get your ConnectWise product questions answered, connect with a Customer Success Manager, and most importantly work to tailor a conference schedule that will help fuel success in your role.

Network, Network, Network and Be Present!
Get Out of Your Comfort Zone

Get out of your comfort zone and talk to a stranger. Strike up a conversation in the hallway or at your lunch table. Connect with someone in the app. Make a friend in your favorite session. You never know what one conversation can do to impact the growth of your business.

Coopetition

We are big believers in coopetition—the idea that many minds working together can advance faster—and there’s nothing that brings a tear to our eye quicker than two attendees making an important long-lasting connection at the conference.

Be Present

You’ve chosen to attend IT Nation Connect for a reason—and we want you to find your next “best practice” here. Be present for the few days you’ll be out of the office to absorb it all. Keep a notebook to document your takeaways and be prepared to go back to your teams and share what you have learned.

Post-Event: Unpack, Relax, and Share Your Experience!

Follow Through with Your New Connections
Set Goals

We know you will need a few days to breathe, rest, and let all soak in—but don’t forget to set goals for yourself to follow up with new and existing contacts.

Connect

Don’t lose those valuable connections! Add them on LinkedIn or shoot them an email.

Lead an IT Nation Connect Debrief With Your Team & Commit to Your Plan
Present

While the content you have absorbed at IT Nation Connect is still fresh in your mind, put together a presentation and schedule a debrief with your company leaders.

Plan

You owe it to yourself and your company to create a plan to take action on what you want to implement into your business. That’s why you came to IT Nation Connect, right?!

Implement

We know IT Nation Connect can leave you with an overabundance of great ideas to implement in your business. Start by choosing the three top ideas that you want to commit to executing over the next 6 months.

Most importantly, have fun! We can't wait to see you in Orlando!
