I was having so much fun with the physicists that I nearly forgot to check out the exhibition before it closed for good this afternoon.
First stop was the IOP Publishing stand where I had a chat with Sharice Collins, who is our senior marketing manager for the Americas. Sharice is based in our Philly office and has organized a proper knees-up tonight for the IOP Journals community (Sharice prefers to call it a reception). I will of course be reporting on the reception in a future entry.
It seems that my initial concerns about the remote location of the exhibition were unfounded. Sharice reported a steady stream of traffic through the IOP stand. She said that delegates were very pleased to hear about our community website strategy — and the IOP flashing badges were a big hit.
