After the conference goodie bag attendiess get at registration (which included a dozen shoulder slumping books), many conference peeps head straight to the goodie room. This year, the room doubles as a connection lounge, so those of us who work in isolated corners of our houses and libraries can connect the way we're most comfortable -- online! Really, it is so much easier to be clever when you have a backspace key.
I like to scan the promotional offerings to see who took the time to come up with something fresh. I'm a boring bookmark girl, so these events help inspire me to come up with something better.
Some of my favorites this year were the back massagers from Writerspace & the pack of lies (Big Red gum).
Goodie room offerings ebb and flow as the conference goes on. I'll post back if I find something blogworthy.
