ESSENTIAL THINGS TO DO THIS WEEK

PREPARATION IS KEY
Last month we held our SCREEN FOREVER 37 Bootcamp, aimed at emerging and early career industry professionals wanting to make the most of their first time at the conference.
Re-watch the webinar via the link below for an overview of the extensive two-and-a-half-day program of industry panels and all-important social events.
It will also include a deep dive into the SPA Connect Market, with advice on maximising your time in front of commissioners and covers best practices for ultimate conference preparation.
UPDATE YOUR DELEGATE PROFILE
Make sure your profile picture and bio are updated in your delegate registration.
You want to put your best foot forward, and other delegates will check out the delegate list in advance of arriving to see who they want to connect with on the ground.
LOOK THE PART
We're anticipating some beautiful weather on the Gold Coast next week, so make sure to pack accordingly.
Feel free to embrace the relaxed Gold Coast style for the conference, keeping it appropriate, of course.
The SPA Awards and SCREEN FOREVER Gala Party are opportunities to dress to impress – be boujee in black tie/cocktail or let your imagination run wild with bold colours and prints.
With thanks to Audio Network, SCREEN FOREVER's resident DJ Commandeur will be curating the soundtrack to see out our last night on the Gold Coast.
GET EXCITED ABOUT SOCIAL EVENTS
As we know, social networking is just as important as the business side of the conference, so make sure you plan to attend our social events.
On the program this year are our ever-popular Audio Network Opening Night Drinks with tunes provided by Patrick James and SCREEN FOREVER's resident DJ Commandeur.
Delegates can also look forward to the Screenrights Speed Networking Breakfast, the City of Gold Coast Sunset Cocktail Hour, and the SCREEN FOREVER Gala Party.
Click on the link below for a playlist Audio Network has put together to set the vibe during your preparation.
SSSH, QUIET ZONE
This year we are offering an opportunity for you to escape what can be a high-energy environment at
SCREEN FOREVER 37 by creating a Quiet Zone.
Consider this to be like the quiet carriage on the train.
We will ensure the lights are low, and there is very little sensory stimulation in this room during the designated times each day.
The Quiet Zone will be operating each day from 1 - 3pm, in room Broadbeach 2.
Please follow the rules below to ensure those who really need this space can benefit from them.
This area isn't a substitute meeting area so please don’t use it to hold meetings or engage in loud discussion.
Do not make phone calls while in this room.
Don’t feel the need to interact with others when you enter this room. A friendly smile is enough, feel free to just be with yourself and don’t get offended if someone else doesn’t engage with you.
If you have any concerns or need assistance, a SCREEN FOREVER 37 Volunteer will be near the entry to the room.
FREE COFFEE ON STAN
We are taking steps to make SCREEN FOREVER more sustainable and we would love your help.
Our friends at Stan are on board with an offer for all delegates.
Bring your own reusable coffee cup, and as a thank you for helping to save the planet, you'll get FREE coffee during SCREEN FOREVER 37 thanks to Stan.
