Speaking of networking, for in person conferences, the time after sessions is your chance to speak with other attendees and key decision makers in your industry. You can exchange ideas and insights about the new information, or about your own research or best practices. This time is ideal for making contact with experts who may be valuable sources of information exchange in the future. You may also get the opportunity to chat with the speakers and get clarification on specific points they made in the sessions. For virtual conferences, pay attention to the conference Twitter posts, there could be opportunities to join zoom-based social networking sessions. Additionally, Twitter is a great place to ask questions to presenters after a presentation.
Maximizing your medical conference experience includes reflection, at the end of each day, and at the end of the conference. You have just received hours or multiple days full of new information that you need to assimilate and process. Review your notes, download presentation slides and other materials, and consider how to put your new knowledge into action. If you attended the conference with a team, share ideas with your team members and discuss how the new information could impact your company or your industry, or how it fits into the existing data and research.
As previously mentioned, these conferences deliver torrents of information that a single person has no chance of completely absorbing. So what if you need to be able to catch all of the sessions and retain all of the information? The answer is a knowledge management platform.
