Comments from last year’s attendees (used with permission):
+ There were relevant, eye-opening options for me during each concurrent session. Although it wasn’t presented this way, it seems that the organizers scheduled the sessions so that participants could follow certain “learning tracks” throughout the day.
+ Useful, practical sessions that provide information that can be implemented immediately in one’s own library.
+ Location of the event and scheduling. All sessions were close together. Sessions were timed nicely. The lightning rounds were a nice option; they ran at a good pace and kept our attention.
+ The smaller size and the high quality of the sessions. The catered food was also a nice treat.
+ The dinner the night before – good food, good networking, and great atmosphere: http://bit.ly/BCpre
