Road to Microsoft Ignite – packing my luggage for days and nights

I visited a lot of conferences and speak for the most part of them. Especially at Microsoft Ignite you have to plan and be prepared to have more time for business, friends, sessions and Meetups. In the following blog post you can read some hints and tips for Microsoft Ignite conference Orlando:


  • light as possible
  • a small backpack, maybe you will get one at the conference / Plugin for you Surface
  • pack only the half of your luggage, you need free space for goodies
  • pool clothes
  • jacket for the conference rooms (cold!)


Day 0 at conference

  • catch your conference pass at one of the hotels (example: Hyatt Regency)
  • buy a bottle of water as backup
  • charging the battery pack and find your adapters (Smartphone, Surface)
  • sleep or make a chill day at our hotel. The next days will be hart and you will get only 4h sleep.



  • light backpack
  • drink a lot of water
  • use your wifi code
  • networking and speak with new people, you do not know before


  • plug in your Phone
  • plug in your battery pack
  • plug in your Surface/PC
