Editor’s note: In April of this year, oil and gas leaders and digital transformation experts will gather at Quorum’s annual Qnections conference in Phoenix, AZ. Take a look at the expert speaker lineup and follow #Qnections on Twitter for more updates.
The 2018 installment of Quorum’s annual Qnections conference is right around the corner and attendees surely have a lot on their mind leading up to the event.
The great news: You are going to be at the Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort in Phoenix next week, where you’ll engage with energy professionals and equip yourself with valuable insights to take back to your company.
The challenge: The difference between having a great and a spectacular conference experience comes down to preparation.
We understand you have a day job, and you’ve taken time out of your busy schedule to attend Qnections. In acknowledgement of your hectic schedule, we’ve mapped out three quick and easy packing reminders that will have you feeling fully prepared upon arrival and ready to make the most out of your Qnections experience.
1. Download the Qnections App – Your central Hub for Everything Qnections!
Next week, the Qnections2018 mobile app will become your favorite phone application. Use it to connect with fellow attendees, find your place with easily-accessible hotel maps, and join the social conversation using #Qnections.
With over 80 sessions packed into three days, attendees can also use the app to review the agenda, check out speakers, and prioritize which ones you can’t afford to miss. You won’t need highlighters and pens to map out your plan since you can sign up for sessions and sync your personalized schedule with your calendar – all within the app.
Last but not least, the Qnections app is where attendees can play “Quest for the Q”: the resort scavenger hunt to find the “Golden Q.” Over the course of the conference, the app will deliver different hints and all attendees are invited to participate for the chance to win prizes! Rumor has it that first place gets a drone…
2. Bring the Right Gear for a Good Time
Unlike the typical work day, being at a conference is about merging invaluable learning and networking opportunities with the fun of staying at a luxury resort with world-class amenities.
In addition to the poolside welcome party, morning yoga, and dinner at an award-winning restaurant, we’ll have the opening golf tournament where participants can compete for conference bragging rights and prizes for “Longest Drive” and “Closest to the Hole.” Winners of the 4-man scramble will we awarded with a short poolside reception during the welcome party.
While you’re packing and picking out your lucky golf attire, use the following checklist as a guide to prep for the most enjoyable conference of the year:
Qnections Packing List
- Sunglasses or a hat – The current forecast shows sunny skies all week long!
- Swimsuit – Take a dip in the two on-site pools, slide down the 138-foot water slide, and explore the 40-foot waterfall.
- Business cards
- Your thumbs – Join the conference conversation and begin tweeting using #Qnections.
- We’ll have a scavenger hunt
- Golf gear – Golf clubs will be available for rent if you don’t mind leaving your lucky set behind.
- Sweatpants – You might wind down in something more comfortable following dinner at the award-winning restaurant, Different Point of View.
- Yoga/hiking gear – Nestled in the Arizona mountain vistas, the resort offers various outdoor activities just outside your room and we’re hosting morning yoga and nature hikes to watch the sunrise.
- Drinks and food/snacks – We have you COMPLETELY covered.
3. Stop. Think about how you want to advance as an energy professional.
If you’re already planning your schedule, pause for a moment. What does your company need from you this month? What were those New Year’s resolutions you made? What aspect of the energy value chain do you want to further explore, or what new area do you want to discover?
Let these answers guide which sessions you select.
For example, if you want to come back from Qnections armed with new user skills and ideas to improve your company’s efficiency, you won’t want to miss the IQ Bar where you can meet with a software expert for 1:1 mini-sessions and get specific questions answered. We also recommend stopping by the Technology Expo to learn more about Quorum’s technology and partner ecosystem.
For more session details, visit the Qnections microsite and don’t forget to download the Qnections2018 app to build out your schedule. Find out which sessions and tracks were designed with you in mind, and sign up to save your seat.
Get the greatest ROI for your time at Qnections by planning ahead and personalizing your three-day experience in Phoenix, Arizona. We can’t wait to see you next week!
