The year ahead: Recovery

3 02 2010

It’s been a tough year for everyone, although certainly some sectors have been hit harder than others and the conference industry has reflected this. We’ve seen new events in certain areas (particularly cloud computing events), but some of the old stalwarts have delayed, downsized or closed their doors entirely.

Taking all due care to knock on wood, cross our fingers and hang lucky horseshoes on our desks, we predict that growing confidence in market recovery will underpin many popular themes and ‘opportunity’ will start to outweigh ‘threat’ on conference agendas in 2010. We also hope to see some of the larger, higher quality events whose doors shut this past year return to form.


It will be interesting to see if this bullish mood translates into increased delegate numbers in 2010, let us know what you think in the comments.
