Attending ILI? Top tips for delegates

Alison McNabEssential tips to help you make the most of your time at next month's ILI, from Alison McNab – a long-time delegate, speaker and member of ILI's conference advisory board.

Prepare for the conference
Before you arrive, consider which sessions you wish to attend and make a note of them:  You will receive a copy of the final programme when you arrive; this will be particularly helpful for indicating which room each session will be held in and also any last-minute changes to the speaking programme.

Decoding the programme:  There are three tracks each day: A, B, and C. In addition to the keynote and plenary sessions, there are six talks in each track on Tuesday and four on Wednesday.  Each session is coded according to the track, day of the conference, and the order of the talks. For example, A101 is the first talk in track A on the Tuesday and B204 is the final session in track B on the Wednesday.  Each track has a theme; please feel free to move between tracks but please try not to do so when a speaker is presenting.

There is also an additional track called ILI Extra offering small workshops that provide an alternative to the main three tracks.  Are you interested in Mindfulness? Would you like to find out more about interactive library spaces, or Google Chromecasts? Would you like to try a voice workshop – back by popular demand after its successful run last year?   You can read about these on the programme and sign up for them at the conference reception area.

If you have business cards, do bring them: they are useful for both exchanging contact details with other delegates and entering competitions run by sponsors.  If you don’t have any, consider ordering some from the many online companies that offer them (or make your own).  Don’t forget to include your social media account details and do check for spelling mistakes before pressing send on your order!
