Be Money Conscious
In today’s challenging economic environment, it’s important to save money where you can. The lower your expected expenses are, the more likely your trip to TMSS will be approved by management.

Create a Post-Event Trip Report
Once your manager sees the number of the new business contacts you made, what you have learned and how that knowledge can be applied across your company, they will be more inclined to send you to TMSS again – or even join you next year! Download a sample trip report.

Share Your Knowledge with Your Coworkers
Bring your TMSS materials back to the office to share with your coworkers. For example, the Event Guide is an extremely valuable resource that includes information on the robust list of exhibitors.
