The final day of conferences are a strange affair. The bleary eyes at the first morning session tell their own story of the night before. The atmosphere is subdued and getting participation is difficult. Attendances is also down as people check out of rooms, sleep in or just pace themselves. The second day of the UA Europe conference was no different, but those that missed the first morning sessions missed out.
The UA Europe Conference kicked out properly today with an announcement about the free wifi offered to delegates. The trouble with it was that it just seemed to work in the public areas of the hotel. As we were all packed into a first floor conference suite, it just didn’t connect. So if you were wondering why there had been a complete absence of tweets, that is why. What is weird is that at a conference where the buzzwords include “technology”, “mobile” and “online” the organizers seem incapable of including a wifi connection that allows us to engage with our audiences. OK. Rant over.
And we’re off. The UA Europe Conference kicked off with a free thought leadership event organized by Adobe for the waifs and strays of the Technical Communication industry heading to Manchester for the real event and at a loss for something to do This product agnostic afternoon packed in a lot of content from a mixed bag of speakers from as far away as the US, Australia and Israel.
This Thursday and Friday is the UA Europe 2013 Conference in Manchester, UK. It promises to be another fun packed, information filled couple of days with the leading lights of the user assistance industry presenting and attending. Here is my personal preference of the sessions I’ll be attending. If you are presenting and aren’t listed, it is not too late to get me to change my mind! We can discuss it over a beer. If you are just attending the conference, do come up and say “Hello”. For those who can’t attend, I’ll be tweeting using the #uaeurope hash tag.
