Power Bank or Charger: Keep your smartphone and laptop charged for communication, note-taking, and networking.

Notebook and Pens: Bring a small notebook and pens for jotting down valuable information, ideas, and contact details.

Business Cards: If applicable, carry your business cards for networking and sharing your contact information.

Reusable Water Bottle: Stay hydrated throughout the event by carrying a refillable water bottle.

Unforgettable After-Parties: SuiteWorld isn't just about business; it's also about having a great time. Check out these not-to-be-missed events:

  • Celigo Rooftop VIP Event – Tuesday, Oct 17th, 7-11pm @ Cheri Rooftop: RSVP here and join the Celigo team at the iconic Chéri Rooftop for a memorable evening. Delight in delectable bites, refreshing beverages, and engaging activities, all set to beats that will get you grooving. You definitely won't want to miss this!

Let's celebrate NetSuite's 25th anniversary by partying like it's 1998.

Prioritize Downtime: Amid the hustle and lively atmosphere of Las Vegas, it's crucial to take some downtime. Seek tranquility at Sunset Park, explore the Flamingo Wildlife Habitat, or simply relax by the serene poolside at The Garden of the Gods Oasis.

The Art of Collecting Freebies: While the allure of freebies is undeniable, remember that you probably won't need four fidget spinners, three types of water bottles, and that cute fluffy thing you weren't quite sure about. Instead, focus on collecting merchandise from vendors and partners you intend to engage with. These items can serve as excellent conversation starters and icebreakers, enriching your networking experiences.
