If you haven't seen it yet, the JiveWorld17 survey is open on the JiveWorld17 front page and we are looking to hear from you! We'd like to emphasize that this is not a "give us the best rating and tell us how awesome it was!" kind of survey.

In a nutshell, JiveWorld has over 60 hours of sessions interspersed with with games, meet-ups, parties and food. All of this occurs places like outside by the pool or inside air-conditioned auditoriums over the span of 2-4 days in Vegas. So what are you supposed to bring? Do you pack a swimsuit? A sweater? shorts? Business attire? A cocktail dress? All the above?
Last year Libby Taylor pulled together a wonderful blog about the Dos and Don't for Attending JiveWorld and the previous year she helped us out with Top 10 Things to Bring to JiveWorld (with a Fun Video!). This year, we asked the JiveWorks community for their input in Help! What packing tips do you have for JiveWorld? and as seasoned JiveWorld goers, they didn't disappoint! Here is the complete list of recommendations from people who know exactly what they are talking about so that all you need to worry about is having the best conference ever.
