t-l-c sponsored networking event

The first networking / tweetup event sponsored by the-learning-crowd took place on the 30th April and was declared a fantastic success by all those who attended. Approximately 40 people reprepresenting architects, construction conpanies, education furnture designers and suppliers, Local Authorities, Local Education Partnerships, education publishing, Technology all attended.
There were numerous conversations that were interesting and passionate with lots of ideas and knowledge sharing.  So engaged were people that the time flew by and some were still there really quite late!  Many  people commented that this type of forum was exactly what has been missing for the past year or two, which was exactly why we decided to sponsor this first event.  So enthused were participants that we ahave already had at least four companies offering to host the next one.  
There was also a Tweetup competition for the best tweet from the evening under #schooldesign.  The bottle of champagne for the best tweet was won by HLM Architects.
How we best follow this is being discussed now, but there will be a follow up event..  Watch this space for more news!
