Visualize your ideas

Customize your brainstorm. Event professionals are known for coming up with ideas on the fly, but when the creativity isn’t flowing, Moodstream might be the way to go. This app by Getty Images  combines images, video, and audio—all three of which the stock content service has in spades—to create a stream based on the mood you select. As you customize your mood, the stream of digital content changes. It might be just the thing to spark your next big idea. (ht @EventDawn)

Keep In Touch

Never stop connecting. Conferences and events are great for building new connections. But once the conference ends, the networking shouldn’t. Linda Musgrove, founder of Tradeshow Teacher, says, “Touch base often, particularly with your ‘most valuable’ contacts; go to lunch or dinner, attend an event together, or simply pick up the phone and chat a bit!” Staying in touch with your contacts not only lets them know you value them, but it can strengthen (and expand) your network. Check out Musgrove’s steps for improving your networking skills(ht @viktorixcom)
