How to Prepare for RootsTech

RootsTech is the world’s largest family history and technology conference. It takes place at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City every year. RootsTech is a place where people of all ages learn to discover, share and celebrate their family connections across generations and through technology. Here are some tips about how to prepare for the upcoming RootsTech conference.

The first thing to do is find out when the next RootsTech will happen. The easiest way to do that is by visiting the RootsTech website. It will have information about the upcoming RootsTech including the dates it will take place. Typically, there is a countdown clock that shows how long it is between now and the next RootsTech.

Once you know the dates, it is a good idea to see if you can fit the three day conference into your schedule. Give yourself plenty of time to negotiate with your boss about using some of your vacation days or getting unpaid time off. Check with family to make sure no one has a wedding planned that week.

After you have secured the free time, it is advisable that you register for RootsTech and purchase tickets. In general, RootsTech offers special Early Bird Pricing months before the conference will take place. That price will not last forever, and will eventually go up. You can save some money by registering and buying tickets as quickly as possible.

The best time to book a hotel room is after you know, for certain, that you not only have the time off to attend RootsTech, but also have purchased your tickets. The RootsTech website has some good suggestions about where to stay. Don’t forget to start shopping around for deals on airline tickets.

Some people like to attend RootsTech with friends and family members. If that’s your plan, then you need to start preparing for RootsTech by connecting with them and doing group decision making. Attending a conference can be more fun if you go with people you know.

Check back on the RootsTech website periodically for more information. You will want to find out what Sessions are being offered and who will present them. There are always a wide variety of topics to choose from, so you should be able to find some that interest you. Take the time to plan ahead. Many Sessions are presented at the exact same time.
