  4. Bring an extra bag. If you plan on stocking up at the Imaging USA expo, pack an extra suitcase or duffle to accommodate your haul and avoid shipping charges. 
  5. Pack conference essentials. Things like a refillable water bottle and a fanny pack may not be top of mind to bring with you, but they sure do make a difference. Other ideas of things to bring include chapstick, hand sanitizer, pens, and gum or mints.  
  6. Bring business cards. Imaging USA is an excellent networking opportunity and there are plenty of drawings to enter during the Expo! Be prepared!
  7. Reserve a room at the official Imaging USA host hotel. You can save heaps of money by booking a room in the Imaging USA block, keeping you centrally located and close to all the action. Also, you can trim costs by finding a roommate! Check out theLoop for attendees looking to split the cost of the rooms. Bonus: you'll have more money to spend at the Expo!
  8. Bring hand sanitizer and several masks! Be sure to wash your hands regularly as well. Remember: masks are required in all classes and events, including on the Expo floor. You don't want to wear the same mask every day, so bring extras. There will also be hand sanitizer stations situated throughout the event.
