Our feedback from previous conferences has told us that the networking part of the conference has proved invaluable. Below is a quote from one of our sponsors who has attended the EDGE conference every year. It is hard to put into words why EDGE is so different – it is a combination of the presenters/presentations, the group of delegates that you bring together and the atmosphere that is created. There is always an energy to the conference that I really don’t see anywhere else. In spite of challenging budgetary positions, the people attending EDGE seem to be bouncing and upbeat about libraries and their future, which is so refreshing. Also, we did make some great contacts with prospective customers, which is really good for keeping our marketing folks interested in supporting future EDGE conferences. Colin Carter – Director, Library Engagement, iii

And from one of our guest speakers who has also attended many EDGE conferences – Congratulations on delivering an absolutely amazing conference. As always I thoroughly enjoyed it as did the members of my team who attended. It was superb and I am already looking forward to next year. Please pass on my congratulations to your wonderful team. Neil MacInnes – Head of Manchester Libraries

Why do people return to EDGE? Well it is all in the organisation! Each table at the Gala Dinner is carefully selected, so attendees can meet with speakers, sponsors and someone new!

The EDGE team are there to help each attendee make the connections they need and want. We make the introductions and leave you to network.
