What's the worst event you have attended?

22 June 2007

Searching for procurement news takes the team at SM all over the world to hear speakers and presenters talk about the profession.

So it can be disappointing when you attend conferences to hear the same presentation rehashed for the third time, or speakers just attend to promote their products and services.

But if we, as non-buyers, cannot get any information worth imparting to you from these events, it must be doubly frustrating for purchasers paying a lot of money and hoping to get some nuggets of information from these events.

What are the worst events you have attended, and how could they be improved for buyers?
