Following on...

....from the conference-related story below, I was wondering if anyone has ever been to a conference or dinner where they had really excellent pre/during/after dinner entertainment, and if so, what was it? I find sorting this out even harder than keeping people awake after lunch (although that can be a challenge all day when talking about training software).

At the first conference I did two years ago we had a wine tasting challenge which was fantastic (www.tasteofthevine.co.uk) but last year we had a speaker who was just dreadful (so I won't include his website link). This year the favoured suggestion amongst the guys here is a casino night but I'm not that sold. Our audience are training/HR bods and range from graduates right through to those knocking on the door of retirement and is almost a 50/50 split male to female.

Any suggestions would be gratefully received :)
Love Kate xxxx

I went to a conference that hired a steal pan band and a samba band... it was loud and raucous and generally a relief to see that everyone could dance around and have fun after all the sitting around... that's the only fun I've ever had at a conference! :o)

Ahhh I can imagine it would be fun! What a cool conference that must've been. Don't think I'll be allowed that though, not very 'corporate' - how dull:(

Well, maybe some high qulity jazz would suit the theme! Get the men in suits tapping their feet! :o)

On the other hand wine tasting would probably not go amiss if you did it again...
