The Conference for Conference Organisers
Emma & I have just come back from the inaugural PCO conference (yes, a conference for conference organisers!) on the Gold Coast. We had a fantastic time for a whole range of reasons:
- I don't think I've ever been a delegate before! I LOVE being a delegate. It's so easy! You don't have to get up early, particularly. And you get fed ALL the time. I can't believe I had about 2 hours to get ready for dinner! That's unheard of.
- Besides just enjoying it, I learned a lot. It was a really good, sharing kind of atmosphere. I got to meet a lot of people (competitors) that I've heard a lot about, but have never had a conversation with.
The content had a couple of different streams - one being for owners, and others being for people who worked in the meetings industry. There were a couple of presentations which were a bit off-topic, but overall, I found it really interesting, and I'm really glad I went. PCO's can be so defensive of their clients and how they do things - it was so refreshing to have this kind of atmosphere around it.
I'll be going next year, and I'll be taking some of my staff too.
