Attendee tips

  • "In preparation, I produced a summary leaflet with information on my slate all on one piece of paper."
  • "As is so often the case at conferences and festivals, it was the unexpected and spontaneous encounters that were probably the most valuable in the long term."
  • "I did find the range of broadcasters and sales agents in attendance rather limited; and had expected to have twice as many meetings with sales agents."
