I've certainly had time to reflect in the 3 weeks (and the rest!) since Media Camp Nottingham 2. 58 people appeared on the final registration list with 60 tickets available for the event which took place on Saturday 27 March 2010. 48 of those registered made it through the doors of Lace Market House.

Quick walkthrough of Lace Market House during the last session of MCN2
The day officially ended with a magnificently entertaining performance from Ben Walker.
At the top of this post I began by acknowledging my 3 wk reflection. Here I am now reporting back. A vital process in order to evaluate success of an event. Very simply here is an outline I guarantee gets most out of any event.
PLAN - PREPARE - DELIVER - REFLECT - REPORT
During my years as a stagemanger the cyclical flow of stage production rarely gives adequate time for the latter two stages. This condition is often referred to as event fatigue. So much energy is poured in the event that at the end of the delivery phase everyone is exhausted and already focusing on what comes next. The reflect and report phase for organisers and planners are the most valuable in terms of future revenue. this is where case studies are formulated, archives are collected, memories are cemented and goals measured.
All too often online and offline this is glossed over and neglected. The planning and preparation rarely factors in the final two stages and even with Report back or debrief given a small budget the reflection process is awarded no value at all.
