Unleashing the Fun Side of Conference Etiquette
Navigating the Unspoken Conference Rules with a Dash of Quirkiness
We have a great love for conferences because they provide a platform for knowledge sharing, networking, and inspiration. Amidst all the exciting intellectual buzz, there are unspoken rules and etiquette guidelines that should be navigated to ensure a smooth and enjoyable experience for everyone involved.
At Focus Rooms, we believe in making conferences not only productive but also fun and unforgettable. That’s why in this blog we delve into the world of in-person conference etiquette but add our twist of quirkiness. Discover what the unspoken rules are and how we can save you from awkward moments and infuse some laughter into the mix.
1. Superbly Silent: Stay Present, Stay Engaged
We all know the importance of giving undivided attention to speakers and fellow attendees. That’s why there is an unspoken rule to put your phone on silent and do your best to stay off it and be present.
Luckily, being without your trusty device doesn’t mean you have to be any less entertained.
At Focus Rooms, we take it up a notch by providing conference kits packed with hilarious props.
Need to discreetly grab a friend’s attention without disrupting the speaker? Wave our attention-grabbing ping-pong paddle at them. If that doesn’t work, we have pea shooters in our holster too!
When all else fails though, and you can’t get around the fact that you need to secretly rest your eyelids for 30 seconds; don’t fear. We have fun eye masks that will make it seem that your eyes are wide open. If that’s still not enough, you can turn to the matches we provide as eyelid openers.
2. Dress Code and Neatness: Embrace the Bibs, Embrace the Fun
Keeping to the dress code is crucial for maintaining a professional atmosphere. Nonetheless, accidents happen.
Stained your shirt during lunch? Misread the invite and feel a tad underdressed? Fear not! Our collection of stylish bibs is here to save the day and add a touch of excitement to your wardrobe.
They’re more than just practical; they’re also a gateway to a world of fun and role-playing!
If you’re in the mood to feel “sexy”, slip on our bikini bib and embrace your inner beach goddess.
For the bold and daring, why not don the gorilla bib and unleash your wild side?
If you’re feeling suave and utterly yummy, channel your inner James Bond with our dapper bib that exudes sophistication. You will have everyone shaken; not stirred.
3. Be Seen as Snacktastic: Don’t Be a Hangry Hippo
Conference days can be long, and staying engaged requires sustenance. So, when you’re ready to smash a burger, remember to take a sec and consider what your peers might witness. When in a rush, remembering table etiquette 101 will keep you in that twinkly good light.
Over and above this, always use your allocated breaks to top up that nutrition and caffeine if you love your coffee like us. We’ve also got brain juices to sip on that’ll keep your energy and mood up.
Stay energized and focused, one sip or delicious bite at a time.
4. Stay Mint: Be Known as a Breath of Fresh Air
Making connections is a vital part of any conference. So, make sure you’re always a breath of fresh air. Figuratively and literally.
Pop a mint before those up close and personal sessions, and always stay hydrated! H20 does wonders for the breath. It also helps you stay alert. This is part of why we make sure we always have an endless supply of icy lemon or cucumber infused water to keep you refreshed.
5. Time Management is Key: Be as Engaging as TikTok ?
When you have something valuable to share, it’s important to be mindful of time limits. That’s how you deliver a memorable message that keeps attention. So, if you’ve allotted a speaking slot, respect the schedule and deliver your thoughts quickly and concisely.
If need be, rope a work friend in to help keep you on track. If they get the sense that you’re losing the audience or see people glancing at their watches. We have some great tools in our conference kit to help in this mission. One of these items is a ‘boredom blinger’. It is a fun way to grab the attention of the audience humorously. The best part? It’s part of our giveaways, so no one would know you had a secret code to begin with.
