Learning Technologies is a huge free exhibition and paid-for conference in London every year. I’ve been going for more years than I care to remember and it gets better every year.
You can see the conference programme here.
You can see all of the tweets on #LT18UK. The back channel is a great way to get involved with an event if you aren’t there in person.
@LightbulbJo hi thanks for the follow back – enjoying reading your tweets as couldn't be there in person this year!— Anna Simpson (@anna_simpson01) January 31, 2018
Day one exhibition walkabout
Ar Deputy Editor of TJ, I thought doing a live Periscope video broadcast at the exhibition might be a great way to get the message out from some of the exhibitors, as well as highlight the event to people who aren’t sure about coming, or can’t make it.
This walkabout included:
- Brian Calvert from Training Journal publisher’s Dods Parliamentary Communications
- Stephanie Morgan on the TJ cover, LT Chairman Don Taylor inside the magazine and, well, me!
- Thrive Partners chatting with Emma Fairclough
- Appitierre with Wes Atkinson whilst he was talkign with Phil Reddall from John Lewis, also Chair of the Board of the Elearning Network
- Nancarrow Partnerships with Issy (Isobel) Nancarrow
- The Elearning Network chatted with John Curran, James McLuckie and Toby Harris
- Blue Bottle Biz with Marco Faccini
- Management Pocketbooks with Ros Baynes
- The LPI with Giles Hearn
There was some great feedback on the exhibition walkabout, so we decided to do more on day two!
It was awesome Jo – please do more – maybe go and say hi to Jenny and crew at @kineo – they will welcome you with open arms 🙂— Con Sotidis (@LearnKotch) January 31, 2018
Loved the definition of Elearning: Learning happening online! Let's keep it simple #LT18UK— SyncSkills (@SyncSk) January 31, 2018
