I know. I was reading about how people thought Swarm's planning function was so great, but couldn't you just do that through the meeting's app, now that most have some sort of attendee-to-attendee...

Thanks for the clarification, Adrian, and the link to the post on different types and roles of silence at meetings. Reflection needs to be directed, I think, to be useful in a session setting,...

That was pretty much the report's conclusion, Alison. Though I do think that there's something about the format that's easy to abuse, and that finding the right panelists and moderator is a lot...

Love the saying, though the reality of it does make me sad. Thanks for all you're doing, John, to change that.

Another great idea—thanks, Adrian! Now I need to take a trip somewhere so I can put this stuff into use.

It has been one of those winters, hasn't it? That's a good option for when the speaker just can't make it, though I always worry that Skype will do its "you are now talking from the bottom of the...

ctoby, I agree that hotels and event hosts need to have both more carrots and more sticks to incent people to stay in the room blocks, but inevitably there will be those who go around the block,...

I haven't used it yet, but will think about it for future vacation trips. But there's a lot to be said for staying at the HQ hotel for a conference, beyond supporting the organization--all those...

I agree wholeheartedly that hybrid events can be a great addition, but they are a bit of a different animal than a lot of people are used to planning. I love the way Sam brings it down to earth...

Good ones, Dianne!

Here are a few more of my favorites from people posting on other social media channels:

Feel free to change your presentation 5 mins before the event!

That's not my problem—you...

Thanks Adrian!

I absolutely buy what you're saying, but I also imagine the thought of waiting to set the agenda until the meeting is convened would bring terror into the heart of most meeting managers. How do...

Note from Sue: I'm posting this for Eric Vidal, who left this comment on the old blog.

Very interesting look at the trends in events. With budgets and travel restrictions still top-of-mind...
