We recently concluded the Blog Fest SOCCSKSARGEN 2010 and the anticipated participants of 50 rose to 108+ that the venue was simply swarmed.
A great number of attendees were young students of AB Mascom and Journalism. While the summit's main agenda were blogging and all about internet technology and security, the summit became an overwhelming resource of blogging issues and must-do's.
When summits and conventions are well prepared and organized, they can indeed become a new medium for industry - based updates. Although, these gatherings may mean costs, but additional inputs can be all worth the travel, pay, and time.
So, if you are a student, teacher, office worker and alike, learn from your comfort zones and take the advices of the experts.
