Are conferences economically viable during recession?


The following is a letter to BlackBerryCool:

Dear BBCool,

My company did not send me to Mobile World Congress this year because it was not in our budget. This seems to be the case with many of our clients and I was hoping your site could shed some light on the subject.

What usually happens in these times is tradeshow budgets are the first to go except that a lot of the big companies have already purchased their show spaces some years in advance. This is a comment from one of our clients over there:

The show doesn’t seem to have as much content as I’d expected. Although, one of the booths had a classic booth girl.

The show seems to have fewer attendees. I’d say there are 20% to 30% fewer attendees. It seems the economy has had a real impact on the conference.

If above says 20 ā€“ 30%, Iā€™d say more likely 40 ā€“ 50% smaller. People under exaggerate in that scenario (hope). Thanks BlackBerryCool!

Editor’s Note: So let’s tackle this subject as a community. Here are some things I’d like to discuss:

Has your company cut back on conference attendance? If so, why?
Are conferences integral to your business?
What can a conference do to make itself a more of a viable expense?
