SEC Rookies

Your First Congress? Here are Some Tips…

Don’t be shy- about 1/3 of delegates are first-timers, but SEC delegates are friendly so get out there and introduce yourself!

Rookie Ribbon- ask the registration volunteers for your “rookie” ribbon for your name tag so that others know you are new to SEC and can help you meet new people.

Sport Tourism 101- attend the Sport Tourism 101 session on day 1 of the Congress to get the lay of the land when it comes to CSTA and the sport tourism industry.

Membership- become a member of CSTA to be linked into the latest news in the sport tourism industry and to access CSTA’s tools and resources.

Social Events- attend all the social and networking events at the Congress.  We guarantee you will make new friends at the hospitality suite!

Refreshment Breaks- be sure to make the rounds to each exhibitor kiosk during the refreshment breaks and in-between sessions.  Our exhibitors have lots of valuable information and ideas to share.

Ask questions- unsure about something? Check in with our helpful volunteers at the registration desk.

Review materials- review the Congress schedule online before you arrive at SEC and plan which sessions and activities you are interested in attending.

Dress appropriately - bring clothing and footwear that work for both meetings (business/business casual) and social events (sporty, casual).
