There are always people who’d like to make it to a conference but can’t get there, and others who are interested in the topic but wouldn’t want to attend the full day. With scientific conferences, where research is often presented for the very first time, this is particularly true for members of the public and supporters.
This is where post-conference reports really come into their own.
Presented as blog posts, these reports can help supporters stay informed and feel a part of the latest advances. From the charity’s point of view, this helps to reinforce the charity’s position at the cutting edge of science in their supporters’ minds.
These reports from conferences and other scientific meetings are also a useful way to keep internal staff who didn’t attend up to date, and can help keep track of the ‘next big thing’ to look out for.
