You also don't need to be a member to attend. Simply pre-register online for the events you want to attend.

Do I need to bring anything with me?

Firstly, we recommend you bring plenty of business cards with you to the expo. Never underestimate how many people attend these events and how many business cards you may want to hand out to new connections.
