Coun­sel­lor Shivani Misri Sad­hoo lists some im­por­tant fac­tors that one must keep in mind when at­tend­ing in­ter­na­tional events

An in­ter­na­tional con­fer­ence or sem­i­nar of­fers at­ten­dees an op­por­tu­nity to demon­strate pro­fes­sion­al­ism, skill, and knowl­edge. So, it may be help­ful to keep some point­ers in mind while you are there.

PLAN IN AD­VANCE

Many con­fer­ence or sem­i­nar plan­ners have a list of things you need to carry along. You need to in­clude a cell­phone, lap­top, pens, busi­ness cards and ID cards, and some­times all these. Keep in mind to keep con­fer­ence-re­lated ma­te­rial that has been sent ahead. Jot down the names and some­thing about the peo­ple you need to ad­dress.

PROPER AT­TIRE

When de­cid­ing on your con­fer­ence wardrobe, make sure you un­der­stand the dress code of the event. Usu­ally, it could be a suit, tie, or dark socks for men, and hose and closed-toed shoes for women. Men can wear a suit, while women may wear for­mals with co­or­di­nated slacks, tops, and jack­ets.

REP­U­TA­TION AND CON­DUCT

Safe­guard your­self as well as your coun­try's rep­u­ta­tion at all times. Speak in a po­lite and pos­i­tive man­ner. While lis­ten­ing, pay at­ten­tion - you never know who may be ad­dress­ing! Bev­er­ages may be served at the con­fer­ence so know your limit.

ELEC­TRONIC GAD­GETS

Although it's usu­ally ex­pected that you'll carry your elec­tron­ics gad­get(s) with you, keep the lap­top on if you bring it to the sem­i­nar, so you don't have to hurry to check any­thing. En­sure your cell­phone is on silent mode.

CARRY YOUR BUSI­NESS AND ID CARDS

It is al­ways bet­ter to carry your busi­ness or ID card when you are at any in­ter­na­tional sem­i­nar/ con­fer­ence be­cause you never know when you may need to leave the hall.

RE­SPECT OTH­ERS

While at an in­ter­na­tional con­fer­ence/sem­i­nar, chances are very high that you will meet peo­ple from dif­fer­ent cul­tures. Show re­spect to ev­ery­one!

Safe­guard your­self as well as your coun­try’s rep­u­ta­tion at all times. Be po­lite and pos­i­tive
