So, I’m sitting in a network meeting and the facilitator says, “Do you think conferences are on the way out?”

Good question!

The idea was that we are overloaded with information and we no longer want just another binder to take home.  Personally, I’ve lost my desire to attend conferences for information sake. 

I don’t mind going to network with others.  I don’t mind going if there is an action objective designed to impact our world.  But just for information? 

And with that in mind, I’m examining the advertisements of various magazines to see what is happening.  So far, there is still a strong conference base.  But for how long? 

We’ll see.
