I remember this time last year getting ready for my first convention.  I was completely overwhelmed, what do I wear, what do I pack, will there be any down time? I had no idea what to expect.  So because of that I decided to share some of the tips I learned from last year!

Here are my tips:

  1. You want to dress cute, but dress comfortable also.  If you can run around town in heels all day then go for it.  You will be walking long distances, sitting for long periods of time and going from hot to cold all day long.  Wear Layers.  Love Your Shoes, your feet will thank you.

  3. You need a bag so bring your cutest purse right? Nope!!!! Bring a back pack.  In years past doTERRA has given us bags with registration and they will most likely do that again this year so if you don't have a backpack you can hold off and use the bag doTERRA gives you.  Just remember it is a LONG day.  You will want snacks, room for a sweater and anything you buy.  So basically a little purse will not cut it.

  5. Usually when we travel we pack our suitcase to the brim right! Well don't do that for convention.  Save extra room in your bag.  As a matter of fact I will be packing a carry on in my check bag so I have extra room!!!! There are tons of great shops and lets not forget the convention kits.  doTERRA introduces tons of new products at convention each year and they let up buy them at a discounted price each year!!!!! You are going to want to save room for that.4. Pack Snacks! It is a long day. I come prepared with snacks and a water bottle.  I don't know about you but I eat every 2 hours lol. Snack are necessary.5. I am sorry if I sound like an person who loves her win a little too much here but remember Salt Lake City is a Mormon city.  That means they don't drink.  Last year we have this great house and we bought food, cooked dinner and went to open our wine and there was no bottle opener........We had to drive to the store to  buy one. So I urge you, if you like a glass of Vino at the end of the day pack your own wine bottle opener in your checked bag.  You will thank me later.

Well that is all I can think of now! Happy Packing and have such a great time at convention!!!! I can't wait to see you there :)
