Planning Your Trip
Before you even begin packing for the Beauty Tech and Innovation Summit, it’s important to have a clear idea of what goals you hope to achieve while attending. Take some time to reflect on why you’re attending the summit and make a list of tangible results that will indicate success. Are you hoping to learn about new technologies?

Knowing your objectives ahead of time will help ensure that when it comes time to attend sessions, network with vendors, or follow up after the conference, you’ve got a well-defined plan of action.
Research the Agenda
The next step is researching the agenda for the summit and creating an itinerary for yourself based on your company’s goals. The official website provides an overview of all speakers and topics being discussed that can be downloaded as a pdf or saved to your Google Drive as well as any additional activities such as networking receptions or workshops offered in addition to traditional presentations.

Additionally, make sure to signing up for email notifications so that if there are last minute changes or additions to the agenda or new opportunities, they’ll be sent directly to your email inbox.
Make Travel Arrangements
Once all of your research is complete and goals are established, it’s time to start making travel arrangements! Decide whether flying or driving would be best suited for getting from point A (your home) to point B (San Francisco). If flying is preferred, book flights early so that prices don’t skyrocket closer towards departure day; this applies particularly if traveling internationally since long-distance flights can typically be more expensive than domestic ones depending on location/time of year/etc.. Additionally, think about where exactly in San Francisco would be most convenient – taking into account events like rush hour traffic and parking availability – when selecting hotels or Airbnbs nearby venues hosting Beauty Tech related events during your stay!
