These include:
We want our newcomers to have a rewarding experience, so we’ve designed sessions just for YOU! Visit our Program Page and filter by Track to see these sessions, descriptions, and presenter details! Check out our top 5 that Industry Newcomers should attend:
Kick off your conference by connecting with others who are new to the industry or meeting conference veterans. Join us at the First-Time Attendee Reception taking place on Sunday, March 3rd from 5PM to 6PM. Don’t miss this opportunity to start your networking!
All First-Time Attendees and attendees who are new to the testing industry will have the opportunity to capture a professional headshot at no cost. Having a polished headshot at your disposal is invaluable for enhancing your online presence, whether it's for social media profiles or your email signature. We’ll send a link to all eligible attendees prior to the conference to schedule a time slot.
If you’re new to the Innovations in Testing Conference, opt to have an ambassador assigned to you who will guide you along the way. Simply select “Yes, I’d like an ambassador” when you register for the conference. An experienced conference veteran will be in touch prior to the conference and will make arrangements to connect on-site. If you’ve already registered and didn’t opt in, email firstname.lastname@example.org to add yourself to the program.
Sign up to be on the Volunteer Committee by serving as a greeter, session coordinator or other on-site helper. This is a great way to get involved and meet new people. It’s also very often a stepping-stone in being a part of other ATP committees...which leads to meeting even MORE amazing assessment professionals! Once again, you can sign up when you register, or email email@example.com for details.
Take advantage of a special getaway lounge just for our industry newcomers to network or simply enjoy some downtime. This designated room will be in the heart of the meeting space, making it easy for you to enjoy!
