Here's What Attendees Said About the 2009 Conference
- Great speakers, great energy, wonderful to get GLAM people together (it doesn't happen enough in NZ)
- Thank you - this was excellent in terms of content and programme - it was really stimulating, practical and positive
- Very enjoyable and I always come away feeling that I have learnt a lot and also that other people are experiencing the same challenges
- I find attending the conference is of great value as it is one of the few opportunities to bring so many different parts of the industry together in one place
