I think I’ve attended midyear the last 19 out 26 years but the last few years, probably thanks to Social Media have been the absolute best. Which brings me to what I miss the most…. Wifi and The Bloggers Lounge! I don’t care about the candy and soda but I sure loved hanging in the Bloggers Lounge, talking tech and being able to easily blog & connect via social media.
Glimpses of Midyear | The Housing Policy Symposium and 59 1/2 Minutes
We arrived late yesterday after an 8 hour drive from New Hampshire and got a little bit of a late start today. After catching up with friends and grabbing a bite to eat we settled in to watch the Housing Policy Symposium and the always popular 59 1/2 Minute session! Rather than tell you all about the session, I encourage you to read Brian Copeland’s excellent post full of all the details… I will tell you however that 59 1/2 was a lot longer than 59 1/2 minutes but it was chock full of good stuff and really pumped people up for the Rally!
Tomorrow- trade show… boy am I glad I brought my sneakers!
As a long time Midyear attendee, I know one of the must do sessions is 59 1/2 minutes, as it sets the stage for the whole conference. This year I arrived early to stake out some balcony seats while attending the Housing Policy Symposium as well as 59 1/2 minutes. As you can see the place is filling up fast.
