I travel quite a bit and yet I haven’t encountered this decision before: What should I pack for a business conference during the day and a swamp tour by night? Next week I’m headed to New Orleans for the Sage Summit, featuring hundreds of sessions, 70 speakers, and endless networking opportunities along with some quintessential experiences in the Big Easy.
I have been running a small business for the last seven years but the conferences I usually attend are about the subject of my business (WordPress, software, travel writing, blogging, social media) and not so much about the act of being in business or running your own company. I’m looking forward to hearing from an incredibly impressive and diverse lineup of speakers and panelists.
Sage Summit Canadian Speakers
Patrick Kelly from Canada Games Council, The Cupcake Girls (Heather and Lori), and Evan Carmichael.
Sage Summit Conversations & Panels
General Colin Powell, Deepak Chopra, and Stephen Kelly, Tony Hawk, Chad Hurley, Jane Seymour, Matthew Weiner, Trevor Noah, Baroness Karren Brady, Ron Buist (Tim Hortons), and more!
Sage Summit isn’t just for Sage partners and customers, I’m looking forward to everyday business insights, strategies, and advice — all kinds of advice:
Don't wear open toe shoes or sandals walking around the French Quarter! #SageSummit https://t.co/2M0AQoaSJ3

For 35C heat plus humidity, conference panels and expo, and that swamp tour (or French Quarter ghost tour) I’m still not sure what to pack but I have a few days to figure it out. What I do know is that this is shaping up to be one amazing learning experience.
The entire week will end with the closing riverfront party with recent MTV VMA nominee, and platinum selling artist, Walk the Moon.
