Five reasons to be Tweeting at SfE BES

SfE BES 2015 (RGB)Love it or hate it, Twitter can really help you get more out of your conference. Here are our top five ways, from the Society for Endocrinology communications team. Happy Tweeting! (and don’t forget the hashtag #SfEBES15 !)

1. Meet fellow delegatesTWITTER

It’s networking – but online. Meet that colleague who’s active in your field, or find your next career opportunity, Twitter is a great way to introduce yourself before you meet in person.

2. Keep up to date

Despite meticulous planning, sometimes there are last minute changes to sessions or events at the conference. Twitter is where you’ll most likely hear about them first.

3. Get more value from your conference session

Use Twitter to share and retrieve links to relevant papers or other documents that are referenced in presentations.

4. Don’t miss out

Parallel sessions allow for a packed conference programme but increase the likelihood of missing something you would have otherwise attended. Depending on who’s Tweeting – you can get a strong sense of the salient points of the presentation (and audience reaction) in the room across the hall.

5. Give feedback

Heard a great speaker? Is the temperature not right in one of the rooms? Really like the lunch selection? Tweet what you like and what you don’t – we can take it all on board to help things run smoothly  – and make next year’s event even better.
