The need for sharing content – a survey
February 12, 2010 2 Comments
Throughout the year we visit a lot of conferences, seminar and the like, varying from big and top-end meetings like Blogworld and New Media Expo and SXSW in the Social Media space to more industry specialized events like Digital Pharma, Digital Pharma Europe and DigiPharm for the pharma industry. But we’re still surprized how little of the content is actually being shared. Sure, if you’re there, you can experience it live: great speakers with sometimes even greater stories. But a recap of what has been said when you’re back home? Or what if you weren’t able to attend but still are very intrested to that specific story of Mr X? If you’re lucky, you’ll get the powerpoint slides, but a good Powerpoint presentation doesn’t give you the heart of the story. If a congress organizer offers the content in audio or video, it’s most of the time all or nothing. Against a premium price. And what if there are parallel sessions, where two of my favorite speakers are performing at the same time? How do I get both stories?
What’s your opinion? Please join our survey where we’re interested in your need for obtaining conference material (either pdf, poweroint, audio, video) after a conference or of conferences that you were not able to attend. As a token of appreciation we will give away 10 Amazon gift cards of $25 in a drawing for all completed surveys. Please fill in your email address in order to participate in this drawing. Completing the survey will cost you less than 10 minutes. Here you can find the survey.
Thank you very much for your participation.
