Top Things To Look For In A Conference


As you have experienced yourself it always seems that when it gets busy, it gets really busy. January/February has been (and will be) incredibly busy for me. Part of what I’m doing has had me thinking about educational conferences, and what I like in a conference. Here is an incomplete list, feel free to help me finish it off in the comments thread.

  1. Expert Keynote Speakers – There should always be a speaker/series of speakers that are experts in their field and engaging speakers – this is a given.
  2. Choice – I like conferences that have multiple sessions at any given time with accurate descriptions so I can choose what works for me.
  3. Variety in Format – small group workshops with expert help, large group lectures where you sit and get, and everything in between.
