We stopped Joy in the hall to ask for her assessment of the conference on the last day of sessions.

Tim Sanders got rave reviews from attendees yesterday, with folks saying they left with lots of useful information and ideas. We hope you left with a little inspiration, too.

Despite the fact that we were in one of the largest rooms in the hotel,  it was standing room only for this morning event. In fact, quite a few of the session rooms were standing room only. We’re always happy to squeeze in more session participants! Please make sure to be courteous and discrete when entering and leaving the room.

Dave’s drive to the ILTA conference

Our own Four Corners Regional Vice President, Dave Clark, let me know at lunch today that he started a blog. Check out one of his first entries here.

In it, he tells us in photos all about his drive from Salt Lake City to Grapevine, Texas. He posts lots from the actual Four Corners area (see his foot on four states!).

The good news is, he left Salt Lake City at 1 pm and arrived at the Texas border by 9 am the next day. The bad news is, he was only about halfway done. (Texas is big. Okay, maybe not that big.)

Any other folks driving from this far away?

Welcome to the ILTA Conference Blog!

The purpose of this conference blog is to help attendees connect with other attendees on site, and to help non-attendees make those connections virtually. Here are some of the ways we’re going to do that:

Before the conference:
1. You’ll see posts from speakers and attendees before the event where they’ll discuss what they’ll be talking about, what sessions they will attend and whom they hope to see.

2. We’ll link to the main conference site for reminders about the program.

3. We’ll post some helpful articles with advice on how to make the most of your conference attendance.

4. We’ll offer a place for attendees to share their plans and possible pre-meet other attendees so you’ll know a colleague or two when you get there.

During the conference:
1. We’ll post highlights from the day’s sessions and events and invite attendees to share their highlights through post comments.

2. We’ll post photos and video interviews to the blog, and take your comments and suggestions for more.

3. We’ll keep you updated on changes and can’t-miss events.

Most importantly, we invite you to use this space to comment, share, give advice and hook-up with your fellow ILTAns.
