How to maximise the impact of a conference

Have you have ever attended - or even organised - an event and felt concerned that the energy and learnings are quickly lost as delegates are dispersed and return to their 'day jobs'?The Library and Information Science Research Coalition has just published a post on the DREaM project launch event that was held at the British Library in July.  The post pulls together all the blog posts written (fourteen so far!); photographs of the event; video interviews with delegates; and links to the archived social media coverage including a summary of the Twitter activity.  Presentations from the event are also available.The post shows the highly participative and interactive nature of the event and captures the energy of the day.  It's a great example of how to extend the impact of conference, beyond its time frame and its attending delegates.
