IFLA – Newcomers to IFLA session

It’s large – I think this is the biggest conference centre and largest conference I have ever attended. There are 120 countries represented, 3500 delegates with 1000 delegates from Singapore. The newcomers session was presented as a panel with panel members discussing the reasons why they found IFLA beneficial. I have listed their reasons below:

  • international networks.
  • motivation of wanting to learn from colleagues.
  • internationalism of our professions, every conference you find out something new, giving to receive.
  • rich programme, become a better professional.
  • collaboration, strength in numbers.

I think this holds true for Dyane and I also.
