Intense discussion with peers…what helps the business more?
13 Oct 2016
Big conferences provide a bunch of value: Seeing big names on stage, learning about the potential next, big thing, watching PR statements and comparing them with reality. You sometimes can even get some exercise by strolling booths at the adjunct exhibition! However, smaller conferences have their own value. You learn as much from the speakers as from your peers:
- To-the-point focus on the business
- Discussions about real-world topics
- Open idea exchange among non-competing companies
- Intense networking (really get to know your peers).
In the ideal case, small (as well as big) conferences are also a lot of fun when hosted in great locations!
Unfortunately, we cannot be in all places at the same time. Choosing the right conference is not an easy task. Autumn is busy as hell everywhere. But if you could still decide on one event to attend this year, and you could manage to make it next week, go meet your colleagues in Bern.
Here are some of the companies attending:

Sign-up last minute for ICMA’s Autumn Conference. The discount code AIM is still valid until the end of the week and will provide you a 20-percent discount (€799 instead of €1,000).
AIM Group is involved in various ways. Katja Riefler will guide the discussions of the Business Leaders Forum, and Rob Paterson will lead the Business Operations workshop. But it’s attendees like you who will make the difference!
CU next week! And don’t underestimate Bern and the Swiss. In a country that cold you have to have hot ideas to warm up!
