 Introducing the eXchange

Learning Technologies and Learning and Skills is hosting an official eXchange to give the learning and development community a chance to meet, network and collaborate at the event. eXchanges will provide a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with speakers from the conference and will host the event’s ‘tweet up’.

The Learning Technologies  eXchange provides an opportunity for visitors, delegates and speakers to collaborate, exchanging ideas and experiences around themes being discussed in the conference and on the exhibition floors that will influence learning success in 2012.

Exchanges will take the form of conversations throughout the day looking at answers to practical questions that will stimulate innovation and creativity in learning and development. The conversations will take  place online or face to face at the Learning Technologies Exchange area powered by Towards Maturity at  Stand 45 or in the Learning and Skills eXchange area (stand 218) powered by Towards Maturity and partner Training Journal.

eXchange ideas directly with conference speakers

It is the first time that experts who are speaking at the conference will be involved in conversations as part of the exhibition. Throughout the day, eXchanges will consider a range of practical questions to promote learning excellence. Attendees can book to take part in small group face-to-face conversations with the speakers directly or can take part live via social media channels. - see the growing list of speakers who are participating below.

eXchange ideas with peers at the conference tweet up!

For those in attendance at both the conference and the exhibitions, the eXchange will also host the event’s official ‘tweet ups’ at 12.45 each day. These scheduled sessions are an informal opportunity for attendees to meet up with existing contacts, network and meet new people.

The team is encouraging all attendees who use Twitter to visit the eXchange stand on arrival at the event to collect their blue sticker and identify themselves to fellow users. Attendees of the conference will be able to collect their stickers at registration
