• Organize and share your notes.
  • Use #ICNY to look up what you missed on social media.
  • Don't forget about those business cards and the contacts you made while there.

Inman Connect New York 2016 has come and gone (tear), and unless we see you in San Francisco, it’ll be a longer than usual wait (it’s a leap year) until ICNY 2017. Here are three keys to keeping your #ICNY 2016 memory alive.

1. Gather and review your notes

If you’re like me, you were frantically taking notes during the keynotes and panels at Connect. After the Friday session, I went back through my three days of notes and combined them into one file on Evernote.

I then went through an deciphered my shorthand and added context to some of the quick notes that I took. Once it was understandable, I shared my recap file with my fellow agents and admin at my brokerage back in San Diego.

2. Check the #ICNY hashtag

One of the best parts of Connect was the flurry of photos, quotes and moments that were captured on the #ICNY hashtag on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

Take this time to check back through the numerous posts, and you’ll have a few “oh yeah” moments that you can take with you (and maybe some “oh no” moments if you were at the REW karaoke party).

You can also check out the ICNY live blogs from the Inman staff (here’s day 1, day 2, day 3 and day 4). They might have picked up something you didn’t catch!

3. Save those business cards

I ended up with 22 business cards and a few phone numbers saved from other attendees. I met agents who work in Miami, San Francisco, Philly and Chicago.

If I need a referral partner in those cities, who better to work with than a fellow forward-thinking agent who was smart enough to go to Connect? I know I’ll be keeping in touch with my contacts.

It was an informative four days here in New York City, and I can’t wait to put these best practices into play.

Remember, the panelists and moderators are real people — most of them can easily be found on Twitter or Facebook and would love to Connect (see what I did there?). Until next time (hopefully at ICSF).
