As the 2017 SMS Sales Summit approaches, there are many things you can and should do to get ready for the event! We put together a few tasks you can do right now, in April, and come May to get the most out of the Summit, taking place May 23 – 24. You may also have your own conference preparation routine, which is great, but we encourage you to make sure these 10 items are on your list as well!
Clear Your Schedule
The Summit takes place May 23 – 24. The first day (May 23) consists of two training sessions: one for new-to-the-market agents and the other for seasoned veterans looking for advanced sales tips. That evening will feature a red carpet networking dinner. The second day (May 24) will closely resemble past Summits with the industry’s largest trade show, over 40 breakout sessions, food, fun, and more. Tickets are sold separately for each event to customize your Summit experience!
