One of the things I like about going to a conference that I haven’t been to before is meeting new people. The BOHS Conference this year has come up with a great new way of breaking the ice when meeting new people, with a competition. As I am very competitive, this has been a win-win for me!
The concept is simple, you introduce yourself to someone and then use the conference app to scan their QR Code on their delegate badge and you get a point. You get additional points for exhibitors, or if you tweet the conference hashtag of #BOHS14 etc, and the winner gets a prize. For most of the conference I have been coming neck to neck with this fabulous (also competitive) lady, and she currently has me beat by 10 points. There is still a day to go, so I am going to have to get creative. This may just come down to tackling random unsuspecting delegates in the elevator!
