The road to Austin, TX, is paved with proverbial gold; the only thing missing is you! Nov. 1 -5 seems like a bit of a while off, but it’s only 60 days away, and we want you to be fully prepared as you make your way to the Lone Star State.

Here are five things you should have done or should be doing by now.

Secure Your AFROTECH Conference Ticket

There is a conference tier for everyone from college students to high-level executives. The choice is yours: General Admissions, Student, Corporate, Executive, and All-Access. While the ticket levels support different access points, the experience will be life-changing no matter what. Choose the appropriate tier and secure your ticket if you haven’t already.

Catch Flights, Not Feelings

Whatever your airline of choice, there will surely be a price point and schedule perfect for the AFROTECH Conference experience. Use your frequent-flyer miles, tap into flight specials, and book the itinerary that gets you there on time.

It's Your Home Temporarily

For five days, ticket holders will enjoy the conference of the year. But you’ll need somewhere to lay your head when it ends each night. Between local hotels and Airbnb options, there are many places for you and your squad to stay while in Austin.

Your Boss Should Be Paying

While AFROTECH Conference is something you do not want to miss, we don’t want cost to be a hindrance. Leverage this experience as a professional development opportunity, and work with your company to finance the conference. And if you don’t know where to start, we’ve created a template to help navigate the conversation and get “flewed” out to Austin for AFROTECH.
