We're so glad you're joining us in Boston this year.

Here are the ACP team’s top tips for having a successful Offshore WINDPOWER: 

  1. Start Planning Early: Download the event app, and familiarize yourself with the agenda. With three tracks of concurrent sessions, it helps to have your schedule planned out in advance. Browse the attendee list in the app and the floorplan to see who you might want to meet with onsite.
  2. Put Yourself out There: Bring lots of business cards, attend as many networking events as possible, and ask lots of questions. You never know who you’ll meet in the most random places while onsite.
  3. Take Care of Yourself: Business casual dress is recommended, and we encourage wearing comfortable shoes. If you’re comfortable, you’ll have an easier time doing everything you want to do.
