After the conference, you begin to lay the ground work for attendance at future APMP events and utilizing what you learned at the conference. One technique to use is a conference report that provides information to colleagues who did not attend the conference. [US Letter
Examples of information that may be included in the report are:
- General conference information
- Presentation, panel and workshop summaries
- General Session summaries
- Networking summaries
- Pre-conference workshop summaries
- Information about products gathered from conversations with vendors
- Ideas to be used upon returning from the conference
Many attendees work on their conference reports while at the conference or during travel back home. This is when the information is fresh in mind, making it much easier to write. Some attendees return home and put together a presentation for their teammates to summarize key information from the conference.
