    South West Conference at Bristol 26 Jun 2014

    I attended the South West ICT Conference at the fab ex Hewlett Packard HQ at Flton now so wisely under ownership of the University of the West of England today. I remember attending similar events in the past that had been cost free to delegates it was a shame this one wasn't.

    Noticeable gaps in the Exhibitions I thought - no Edugeek Stand for a start nor were MISCO or Impero there just go name three.

    The biggest disappointment for me though was weict14 was provided as an App and there was a Twitter feed yet no free Wifi access to delegates.

    I met some fab people but come on now West of England ICT if you want to do a proper job you are going to need to make this a free event again and above all give delegates Wifi access - this is 2024 after all!

    I agree, apart from the 2024 bit , but sometimes it's the venue that decides on the wifi options.

    I was monitoring #WEICT14 and thought it was a bit quiet compared to other conferences we attend.

    Make sure you mention it on your feedback form.

    As more feedback, it was poorly advertised. I knew about it, but most others in Devon etc didn't. Plus, quite out if patch for southwest now, used to do Torquay as well.
