#6 – The Boss wants you to go

Is the reason you have not registered for DireXions 2017 that you are thinking…

“My boss would never approve me going to a conference on a cruise ship”

Well, here are some of the facts that might help you convince the boss.

NO DIFFERENT THAN LAND-BASED CONFERENCE

A cruise conference is no different than a land-based conference in Vegas, Orlando, or Toronto. All these locations, as well as a cruise, provide opportunities to explore after the conference sessions.  Simply put, you are going to a conference based out of a port and your hotel (ship) just happens to be moving!

FEWER DISTRACTIONS ON A CRUISE CONFERENCE THAN A LAND BASED CONFERENCE

Unlike a land-based conference where you can skip anytime, walk out of the conference hotel and go explore, on a cruise conference all key sessions are held while at sea. You aren’t going to just walk off the ship to explore.  You will have fewer distractions during a cruise conference helping you focus on the material being presented.

What’s more, with the DireXions 2017 schedule, if you should have an unexpected conflict with events back in the office, all training sessions held at sea will be repeated on the days at port allowing attendees to get caught up with anything you may have missed.

STRATEGIC SESSIONS

The DireXions 2017 Cruise conference provides for over 16 hours of presentations including 7½ hours of focused sessions on new features and product futures, 9 hours of product technical sessions and a 45-minute one-on-one session for each attendee. Our average previous land-based conference offered only 10 hours of material with an optional workshop.

The one-on-one session, included in your conference registration fee, is one of the best deals we have ever offered.  This alone is worth hundreds of dollars, if purchased outside of the conference venue.

DEDICATED CONFERENCE AREA

Just like a land-based conference, there are dedicated conference rooms and spaces segmented off to insure a focused learning environment.

What else does a Cruise Conference offer that a Land Based conference cannot offer?

TRAINING AT LESS COST

Everything that you would receive on a land-based conference is provided to you on a cruise conference at less cost.

GROUP INTERACTION AND A FOCUS ON LEARNING

Before, during and after our sessions create a strong network base.  Unlike a land-based conference where everyone scatters after sessions are over each day, with a cruise based conference there will be opportunities for ongoing interactions.

ONE-ON-ONE NETWORKING AND COLLABORATIVE OPPORTUNITIES

While our land based conferences host anywhere from 50 to 80 attendees, the cruise conference is intentionally smaller and more individualized, providing the attendee with increased opportunity to ask questions during sessions along with building stronger network relationships that can continue beyond the cruise conference.

Convince the Boss

If you are the boss, hopefully we’ve already convinced you of the great value in attending DireXions 2017.  If not, and you are not sure that your boss would cover a cruise conference; you can use this information to make your case.

Don’t forget there is only slightly more than one week to sign up for DireXions 2017
