GETTING THERE AND STAYING THERE
Flights:

*** THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ***

HOW TO PREPARE
Treat attending this event like you'd be going to a job interview. Bring whatever it is you need to present yourself as a candidate for job opportunities in your profession. Absolutely bring a resume, roughly 20 copies or so. If you're a Designer, bring a portfolio and some sort of sample presentation that can be left behind.

WHAT TO WEAR?
Whatever you're comfortable in! If you're curious about what people wear in this industry, check out the Industrial Profiles on Malakye; it's pretty true to how it really is.

HOW WILL THE ROOM BE SET UP?
Once you're in, you're in! Companies will be set up along the perimeter of the room, and in the center of the room there will be round tables and chairs that will serve two purposes:

  • For you to sit down and relax at while thinking of your next move/who to talk to.
  • For companies to use when they want to talk more in depth with particular people. That said, if you see a conversation going on that looks like a meeting, be respectful and give them some space.

IS THE ACTUAL TRADE SHOW OPEN TO THE PUBLIC?
No, the tradeshow floor is not open to the public. The Shmooz is reserved for candidates and employers only. But if all goes well for you at the ShmoozaPalooza, you will be in the trade next time!
