Conference gimicks

Katie went to help lead a workshop at a teachers conference in Manchester yesterday. She managed to get a delegates pack which didn’t contain hand knitted mittens (unlike the Helsinki conference she went to, and also, the recent NATO summit in Riga). No, she got colouring pencils. Well, it was an arty conference. Not only that, but she even got a 128Mb USB memory stick engraved with the conference sponsor’s name. They missed a publicity trick, though, by leaving it completely empty of advertising. Leave a comment if you’ve got any funky stuff from delegate packs.

On an unrelated note, I’ve discovered a great new hot drink – gravy.
