Tips for First-Time Attendees

One of the best things about the PIUG Annual Conference is its comfortable size. There are no concurrent sessions. We are a friendly group that enjoys getting together in person, but due to Covid-19 we will once again be holding the conference virtually. Our plan is to hold the 2022 Annual Conference in person.


  1. Download the conference App. Available for Apple, Android, Blackberry and Windows devices. 
  2. Consider attending at least one workshop. Many of them are free, but all require pre-registration.
  3. Plan to meet sponsors and exhibitors to learn more about their products.
  4. Get familiar with the conference schedule.


  1. Consider attending the after-conference workshop.
  2. Fill out the conference evaluation form; your input will make the next conference even better.
  3. Look through the connections you have made; do some follow up networking.
  4. Contact vendors and ask questions about their products.
  5. Plan to attend the next year's PIUG Conferences.
  6. Consider submitting a talk, inviting others to join you at a future PIUG event, or posting what you think of the meeting on a blog or discussion list.
