I’ve had a few days to get back into the swing and dig out of the missed work but I finally pulled some of my pics and created an Imaging Days wrap up. I wont write too much because there is so much out there about how great the event was.
1. What was best? Meeting everyone (Networking). I knew I would meet all sorts of big talents from around the world but it didn’t sink in just HOW MANY big talents I would meet until I was there. It was literally everyone from Europe. Or it felt like it. Amazing and overwhelming.
2. What could be better? For a “Year One” event, not much! But yes, there were some areas to improve and I already know that they are making adjustments for the 2015 Imaging Days. ie Breaks in between seminars – Needed more. Structure to the panels – needed more facilitators (Reel World did this well). The Food and Drinks. Not a huge deal as you can BYOB (Water etc) but the lunches needed some work.
3. Was it worth it? ABSOLUTELY. For Americans? YES. I think in order to really feel like you are getting the best bang for the buck – save up, make a week out of it and do as I did by dividing the trip into two segments: between Holland and another region. Like a few days on a train through Europe, a quick flight to London (like me) or a slightly longer flight up into Scandinavia. But if you have to pick a place in Europe to visit for an Imaging Conference it doesn’t get much better than Amsterdam, Holland.
