This year's Buying & Selling eContent conference was a good networking opportunity in a beautiful locale, as always. But, as Steve points out, there was little provocative discussion this year. In my post-conference survey, where it asks for the three best speakers, I listed them as John Blossom, Patrick Spain and David Meerman Scott. While all three always have something interesting to say, they are also the voices that I read and speak to somewhat regularly. For me, there were no "aha" moments at this year's BSeC.
That said, this is primarily a networking conference and the conversations, both in the formal sessions and at the informal venues, were compelling and interesting. I commend Dick Kaser for his efforts to reshape the conference around these conversations, which were a big improvement over past years.
