Eric Norlin on Conferences Vs. Trade Shows

Having just been to RSA, which is the essence of a trade show, and being about to go to Gluecon, which I’m hoping will be the essence of a conference, I find the distinction between conferences and trade shows that Eric makes in this blog post very useful.

Of course, the most conferency conference is an unconference like the Internet Identity Workshop. If you’ve never been to an unconference like this, you MUST try it. (Warning: you’ll never want to go back.)

    I’m hoping you mean “you’ll never want to go back” to a traditional conference. But, for some folks, the other might be true too!
