Thanks for your post. As you know we introduced the very first Social Media in Recruitment Conference back in July 2009 and have continued to run a Social Media in Recruitment Conference in April each year: http://www.socialmediainrecruitment.com/ At each conference we have evaluation forms and also ask delegated what subjects they would like to hear about in the future. As a result we try and accomodate as many of subjects where possible the following year. I would like to think we have built a solid reputation for our events (we were the first to introduce social media recruiting case studies with measurable results at our 2010 conference) and we continue to plan our programme so that people do get great value from attending. One of our strengths is that we invite delegates from our previous conferences back as speakers (we have 4 this year!) to share the success they have had from what they learnt at our previous events. Like you I agree they are now far too many copycat Social Media Conferences (but I guess you could also say there are far too many job boards, ATS's, Social Media Consultants etc). However, having competition does make you work harder to make you stay ahead of the game and deliver a conference that people want to go to, get great advice, networking and value for money. I would like to think that we deliver on all of those. Mike
