Practicalities Your ticket is just for you – if you’re coming with a friend, they’ll need to apply for their own ticket. At the registration desk, we’ll give you A set of stickers to showcase your skill set and a blank lanyard to write your name on. We’ve got lots of nice big felt tips, so go for large, clear letters. The event gets particularly busy at around 3pm so we’d advise trying to get there an hour either side of that to avoid the queues. When you arrive we will give you a helpful floor plan with a list of where every company is located. Feel free to take a moment working out which companies you’d like to chat to as well as the best route to take to maximise your time. There will be free WiFi, but there’ll be a thousand other users, so be sensible about usage (no film, database downloads, etc.) There will be free coffee all day, and a free bar – enjoy! If you get a bit peckish, you’ll also be able to purchase food. There’ll be plenty of conversation about the event happening on social media – so please take part! Use #SMRnov22 on Twitter and Instagram, as well as following us in the lead up for exciting announcements. Be polite, and patient – We recommend breaking the ice by asking about the mission, the technology, the background of the team, the challenges and the opportunities to grow and learn. Ask how the person you’re speaking to is doing right now. Enjoy, relax, smile! Make new friends. We have it on good authority that there are several companies whose founders met at our events. Any questions? In an emergency? Spot an independent recruiter? During the event look out for the (gorgeous) Silicon Milkroundabout crew, we’re all super friendly, calm, and more than happy to help.
