A LITTLE FAM TRIP ETIQUETTE
Don't Be Late
Or keep your hosts and fellow #eventprofs waiting - as it's not only rude but shows a real lack of respect and is not professional
Even if you are fully hosted, always take some cash with you
in addition to your cards for
tips, drinks and any small essentials.
No one likes a skin-flint!
Always participate in show rounds even if you have seen the hotel or venue before. It's disrespectful not to show an interest.
Local Customs & Traditions and follow any rules expressed by your hosts.
Know your limits and be sensible with alcohol. You don't want to make a fool of yourself, or miss any of the next days activities due to a hangover.
Additionally, if you don't like what is being served, politely ask about an alternative or offer to buy your own drinks.
Always RSVP even if
you can't make the event - its great to be asked!
ALWAYS BE POLITE
Take lots of photos
Check & Connect
If you have had a positive experience, make sure you share it with your colleagues and help suppliers with their ROI

Do a little forward planning - you are in events after all! Make sure your passport is up to date and that you have valid travel insurance if you need it.
See who else is going and if its an International Trip, maybe arrange to travel to the airport together or car share.Connect in advance with your hosts and fellow guests. Let your hosts know if you have any special dietary issues well in advance.
DON'T BE A NO SHOW
Sometimes circumstances dictate we may need to cancel, but give as much notice as possible, apologise and reimburse any direct costs as a result of your absence. Fams especially are expensive so bear that in mind.
