6. Get stupid.
“The DJ Expo is really fun, because no one is judging you,” says Weitz. “You’re in a room with thousands of DJs with egos just as big as yours, so drop the facade and get real, have fun, get stupid and enjoy life. It’s a great way to meet people and to enjoy yourself while educating your mind—if you can remember what you did the night before!”
And maybe even bring some of your own staff?
“For those who run multi-ops, bringing staff to the DJ Expo is a great way to educate your staff and boost morale,” says Hollman. “A huge show like the DJ Expo will leave them inspired and ready to do their best work. I use the DJ Expo as an opportunity to bond with my staff in a more social environment.”
