London 2017 was my first time at a CiviCon event so not sure what to expect, but I have been to many business conferences over the years. So, what was so different about this one? Essentially, nothing; held in a major city i.e. London, in a conference centre, a welcome desk with a goody bag and a programme, introduction, sessions – you get the picture!
It’s hard to put your finger on why it was different - better - but I am sure it has to do with the ethos of CiviCRM and why the organisers and attendees were there; a shared vision and a unified purpose.
What exactly was different? Well, as soon as I walked into the main conference room, I felt I was amongst friends, like-minded people.
