    I attended the eduWeb Conference in 2013 in Boston. I am a communications specialist for a college within a university, and I found the conference to be beneficial to me in terms of getting concrete ideas to implement in my own college and commiserating with colleagues from across the country that face similar challenges such as limited resources. For example, I learned a lot about the do’s and don’ts for an alumni newsletter. But while about more than half of the sessions I was able to glean at least one or two meaningful ideas or observations, not all of the presentations/presenters were of the same caliber. However, because the conference is structured with four sessions going on at one time, if you are not getting anything out of the session you are in, it was perfectly acceptable to hop up and check out another session. While I felt some of the presentations lacked helpful substance, overall it was a great event with a fun and energetic atmosphere.

    I attended eduWeb for the first time last year in Boston and was amazed. There was a diverse range of presenters and topics so that, no matter what area you specialize in or what your skill level/knowledge of a given area is, there was something for you to take home. This was especially helpful for me who, unlike other attendees, work for a specific academic unit rather than the university as a whole and, thus, my work crosses into a multitude of areas–recruitment, enrollment, student life, alumni and industry relations, web and social media content, etc. I was able to attend a number of sessions that gave me ideas and allowed me to grow my position to a greater benefit to the department, though, I will agree with the comment above in that some of the presentations lacked substance and seemed more like a “this is what we did” without giving any insight as to how or why, yet, there were still bits to garner from them.

    The atmosphere was relaxed and positive, and the eduWeb organizers did a wonderful job in making things flow smoothly. Plus, compared to other conferences, I found this to be steal in cost compared to what one can get from it.

    One drawback that I found was the vendors present were very similar and not really approachable at the conference–after the conference, however, my e-mail was flooded by them. EduWeb staff, though, did a fantastic job in communicating with attendees following the conference and apologizing for the wave of post-conference marketing that was taking place.

    Overall, I feel this is a conference that has lots of potential, is well put together, and definitely worth attending.
