If you have extra time the days before or after a conference, or even during an evening, check out StubHub for events in town.
This is something I regularly do in cities I am visiting for work. Earlier this month for Affiliate Summit West 2019 I went to an English Beat concert in Las Vegas.
And last summer for Affiliate Summit East 2018 in NYC I caught a Yankees game.
Back in January 2018, I got tickets to see the New York Rangers play in Las Vegas against the Golden Knights during Affiliate Summit West 2018.
Anyhow, you get the idea. You never know what sort of concert or sporting event is happening in a place you are visiting, and often it might be something you couldn’t see at home.
So check out StubHub the next time you travel.
