Here are some helpful tips for your first AAPM Annual Meeting:

Before the Conference
  • Identify which sessions you’d like to attend and who you’d like to meet. Review the full schedule in advance to plan your time during the conference.
  • Familiarize yourself with the area and the convention center layout.
  • Carry extra business cards. If your institution doesn’t provide them for you, make your own using any word-processing software and business-card stock. Or use one of the many websites that offer low-cost design and printing.
  • Pack comfy shoes. Be comfortable while you dash between sessions or explore the city.
  • Bring a reusable water bottle. We’ve eliminated bottled water in keeping with our commitment to sustainability.
  • Plan your thirty-second elevator introduction. In other words, be able to summarize who you are and what you do professionally in the time it takes to reach your floor — about thirty seconds. And, if you’re coming to the conference on a job search, polish up your interviewing skills and bring a current resume.
During the Conference
  • Registration will be located at the West Hall Lobby, Level 1 of the Los Angeles Convention Center. Registration hours will be:
  • Saturday – Wednesday | 7:00am to 6:30pm
  • Thursday | 7:00am to 3:00pm
  • Arrive with plenty of time on the first day to pick up your Pocket Program and badge. You can usually expect a line at registration — especially on the first day — so plan to arrive at least thirty minutes before your first session or event.
  • Keep track of your badge. Your conference badge allows you admission to all sessions, including meals and social events. Be sure to take it off when venturing outside the convention center or your hotel. Wearing your conference badge identifies you as a tourist and makes you a target for scammers and thieves.
  • Check meeting times closely. The Pocket Program you will receive at registration lists the times and locations for all sessions, events, and exhibits. These times and locations, however, occasionally change — check the conference website or registration desk for updates.
  • Session-hop. You don’t have to stay for the full length of a session. If you play “musical sessions,” grab a seat near a door so you can easily slip in and out without disturbing the speakers or other attendees.
  • Allow enough travel time between sessions. Although all sessions are conveniently located within the west building of the convention center, give yourself enough time to move from session to session — especially since you may have impromptu conversations with folks you meet in the hallways!
  • Ask a question. Speakers usually reserve time at the end of the session for audience questions. Write down your question in advance and make sure it’s related to the discussion. Don’t forget to state your name and your institutional affiliation so that people can remember you. If you’d like to respond to the presentations with your own comments, talk to a speaker afterward and get their email.
  • Introduce yourself to the person sitting next to you. A big part of attending the conference is networking. Before the session begins is a great time to introduce yourself and make a connection!
  • You can use your laptop or smart phone during a session. Typing notes during a talk is okay; so is tweeting. Just be mindful of your neighbors and respectful of the speakers. And don’t forget to silence your phone and share your tweets using #AAPM2024.
  • Post on social media using #AAPM2024! If you’re heading to a session of interest or enjoying a particular event, let other people know. This will also get your name in front of other attendees.
  • Partner with friends or colleagues to cover sessions happening at the same time. It’s not possible to do everything, so decide in advance who will attend each session and take notes for each other. You could then meet after the sessions, or wait until you get home, to regroup and discuss.
  • Remember to visit the Exhibit Hall. This is another great way to expand your network. The hall hours are:
  • Sunday, July 21 | 12:30pm to 5:00pm
  • Monday, July 22 | 9:00am to 5:00pm
  • Tuesday, July 23 | 9:00am to 5:00pm
  • Wednesday, July 24 | 9:00am to 2:00pm
  • Be sure to thank the exhibitors for their support!
  • Attend the evening social events. Just because you’re at a conference doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have a little fun, but be mindful, observant, and professional when interacting in a social environment. You never know who you might encounter!
  • Charge your laptop, tablet, or smart phone every night, and remember to pack your charger in your bag. Don’t leave your devices unattended when charging. Charging areas are available in the exhibit hall if needed.
  • Dress in layers. The temperatures in conference session rooms can fluctuate, so be ready and dress accordingly.
  • Make a new connection! Try not to spend all your time with friends or colleagues that you already know. So, leave your comfort zone and set a goal to meet at least two new people every day. Get their business cards and jot down where you met them and what you discussed so you’ll remember later.
After the Conference
  • Follow up with your new contacts. Send an email to those you’ve networked with to follow up on a question or discussion—or just to say, “It was a pleasure meeting you.” Connect with your new contacts on social media (LinkedIn is a great resource!) and extend your professional network.
  • Complete the post conference survey. Please take a few minutes to let the planning committee know about your experience, this helps us to continually make improvements.
