My colleague Allison Jokinen, Senior Events Coordinator here at Live and Invest Overseas, recently started writing a newsletter exclusively for attendees joining us for our 2018 Retire Overseas Conference (or “ROC” as we call it in-house).
Allison’s letter is called “Backstage ROC: A Peek Behind The Conference Curtain,” and if you’re already on the list to join us in Las Vegas this fall, you know what I’m talking about.
If you’ve been thinking about joining us for this year’s event—but haven’t gotten around to reserving your place just yet—here are two reasons why you should grab your seat this week…
1. Get Insider Tips—Before You Go—To Help You Get The Most From This Life-Changing Conference
We’ll do everything we possibly can on the ground in Las Vegas to help you identify the place—or places—worthy of your attention… and devise a plan of how you’re going to get from where you are now to your new life in paradise.
But, to get the most out of your conference experience, it helps to come prepared. And that’s why Allison started writing her monthly notes. Not only to help ROC attendees with the format of the event (we pack a lot into these three and a half days)… but also to engage you in a little personal preparation (getting to know your own needs) that will help you make every minute in Las Vegas count.
As Allison wrote to attendees in a recent issue:
“Even for the most well-traveled attendee, there is homework to do pre-arrival. Everyone should start with the basics, no matter how well you know the world.
“Consider exactly what you’re looking for in your soon-to-be second home by coming up with some lists… Start simple. What are your must-haves and your deal breakers? Are you a beach bum? Have a limited budget? Have respiratory problems? Love the heat? Hate the heat? Are you willing to learn a second language? Basically, what makes you happy, and what drives you mad? When you’ve got the generals down, your items will naturally become more specific with time. When writing these lists, try to be objective and don’t narrow down your list of countries in mind just yet.
“If your list of demands is short, great! This tells us you’re adventurous—the world is your oyster.
“Is your list long? No problem! Having specific requirements means you know exactly what you want and that you’ll be able to pinpoint early on which places meet your needs… and eliminate those that don’t work for you.
“Even for those of you coming to the ROC with specific countries in mind, if you take a step back and just apply your list of must-haves and deal breakers to our selection of 21 countries, you might discover that somewhere unexpected also fits your criteria.”
Allison will continue to communicate with ROC attendees right up to the time of the conference. Whether it’s a new speaker added to our roster, tips and tricks to navigating your where-to-be-overseas decisions, past conference-goers sharing their now-expat stories, conference reminders, important facts and updates about our 21 destinations, or even exciting news about what’s going on in Sin City while you’re in town, Allison will keep you posted. So by the time you rock up to Las Vegas, you’ll be well prepared for the action-packed days ahead… and even recognize some of the faces of our staff and experts who’ll be standing by to answer your questions.
Allison’s newsletter is the first reason to register this week and start planning well ahead of time.
Now to the second…
2. A Complimentary Home Conference Kit Of Your Choice
As you know, we record every presentation from every conference on our event calendar. And, when you attend a conference with us, you automatically get a complimentary package of the recordings—including supporting bonus reports—shortly after the event. It’s a chance to listen back in on the points that were most important to you… to share ideas with your spouse back home… or to catch a speaker you may have missed (sometimes, we run breakout sessions in parallel and, unfortunately, you can’t be in two rooms at once).
Of course, when you attend ROC this year, you’ll get access to the full set of recordings after the event. But, here’s an exciting bonus for attendees who sign up right now…
When you’re one of the next 20 readers to reserve your seat at this year’s Retire Overseas Conference, taking place Sept. 8–11, you can choose a complimentary copy of one of our recent Home Conference Kits.
Having one of these kits in your hands will be an enormous help preparing you for this year’s Retire Overseas Conference.
By listening in on discussions with our experts and expats, you may add a new place to your list that you’d never considered before… or be able to strike one or two former favorites off. You can also make note of important questions to put to the people you’ll meet on the ground in Las Vegas… so you can make every minute at the event count.
These Home Conference Kits sell for as much as US$500 in our bookstore. But, when you’re one of the next 20 readers to register for Las Vegas, you get to pick the one you’re most interested in… and delve in for free.
If you’d like to get your hands on one of these comprehensive past conference packages, please don’t delay. We can only give 20 kits away—and I expect them to be snapped up quickly.
Finally, if you have any questions at all about this upcoming Retire Overseas Conference—or would like assistance with your booking over the phone—please don’t hesitate to contact my team.
You can reach us by phone toll free at 1-888-627-8834 or by e-mail at email@example.com.
I hope to see you in Las Vegas in September.
