This isn’t a review of the conference such as quality of the speakers, talks or even what any of the rooms looked like, as I spent most of the day on our table shilling our product to strangers but here is a bit of a run through of what we did.
With the help of Chris Lumb (as seen on Russel Howards Good News), We set up our stand for the day with various assortments of leaflets and giveaways (or as I like to call it – Conference tat)
We’d also put something a little special in each of the delegate bags, Haribo. we’ve been to enough conferences to know that everyone gives away pens and stickers.. but not too many people are willing to staple a business card to a pack of Haribo, especially not with over 1000 bags.
(I have a very very understanding wife)
It was lovely to speak to people about Little Warden, many of whom had no idea we existed (It’s as if my nearly 5000 twitter followers don’t immediately retweet everything I post)
Will we continue event sponsoring? I honestly don’t know yet, we spent a fair bit on tat, banner stands and tablecloths for this one so we will have to look to see if anyone signs up (hint.. please signup)
