Guarding My Program

| 3 Comments

Live From NSDC, St. Louis-- I laughed when I read Nancy's comment on taking "twenty minutes to understand the twists and turns of registration" here. It took me at least that long--and even longer to figure out where I was supposed to go for my first session this morning. It is a logistically complex conference--there's a sense of beehive-like activity. And it doesn't make matters any easier that's not easy to get a conference program--in the event that, like me, you forgot yours. I had to borrow one from the registration desk. Really, borrow: I was told I had to bring it back because they were running short. As I was glancing through it between sessions this morning, a fellow attendee seated next to me noticed it and asked eagerly if he could just take a quick look. Apparently they are a hot commodity.

Do you have a sense of how many attendees there are at the conference?

Anon., Thanks for the reminder: I'm told there are about 3,500 attendees.

I got a program! (The early bird, the worm, etc.) And I understand that paper waste is a serious environmental problem. However--there are ads in the program, so someone spent money to get their products in front of conference attendee's eyes, via the expected conference tool of a program.

Anthony, you can have my program, since schlepping materials home is my least favorite thing about a conference.
