Top Swag at TC17

CAN recently got back from Tableau’s 2017 customer conference, affectionally shortened “TC17”. I brought back several things from the week in Las Vegas: a couple Tableau tips and tricks, several new connections within the Tableau community, and of course, some swag.

In no particular order, here are the top 5 swag (swags?) I picked up at Tableau Conference 2017.

 

① Interworks Viz Socks

In a world of suit and ties, socks can be a great way to show off some pizazz while remaining professional. I wish I had grabbed 6 more pairs because I can see myself wearing these every day of the week!

 Pluralsight Fidget Cube

That didn’t take long. Within a year of invention, fidget cubes are now officially branded swag. Pluralsight’s fidget cubes are perfect for mindlessly fidgeting around while thinking through your next great visualization.

③ Data Sleep Mask

This was a surprise from the Tableau Partner Summit on Monday. Tableau was kind enough to provide its partners with a TC17 Rally Pack that contained cool, yet practical swag like this to help make sure they were able to fully recover each night of the conference.

④ VizItPhilly Koozie

Shoutout to the VizItPhilly crew (specifically Corey Jones) for supplying me with this neat koozie! Without it, my hands surely would have frozen from holding craft beer cans during Data Night Out.

⑤ “We Are Data People” Pennants

These small felt pennants are perfect for selfies and are a great way of reminding your coworkers that you are in fact a real data person.

 

*Bonus – Mini Speech Bubble Whiteboard

Another item in the Tableau Partner swag bag – a miniature whiteboard version of the large speech bubbles with fun data phrases that are seen in about 80% of Tableau users’ Twitter avatars.
