A popular question that often gets brought up is what to wear. Here’s what AFE staff suggests:

We recommend business casual for daytime wear. You want to be both comfortable for the long days and look your best for networking! We also highly recommend bringing a sweater or light jacket to the meeting rooms each day–these rooms tend to get cool.

If this is your first event, don’t worry.. People are really friendly, and nobody bites. So jump in, and prepare for a crazy week that you won’t soon forget!
