CMC Delegate Survey 2010

Posted on: Wednesday 03 November 2010 7:34pm

A big thank you to all our delegates who filled out the CMC online survey last July.

Here are the headline results:

92% rated the Conference as excellent / good.

97% thought it was good value for money.

90% thought the session content was excellent / good.

99% said they would come again.

77% found the conference a good place to do business and 54% said they started discussion about possible deals for later follow-up.

The main reasons for attending are: 87% networking, 66% conference content, 41% looking for potential partners.

Delegate diversity is also growing year on year. The sectors represented were: 33% Indies, 32% Terrestrial TV Broadcast, 28% Interactive Media, 24% Writers, 18% Education, 17% non-terrestrial broadcast, 14% Games, 11% Internet Broadcast and 10% Book & Magazine Publishing.

And about half the delegates surveyed hadn’t been to the conference before.

Comments include:
“As ever, forward looking and truly multi-platform (as opposed to many conferences that are TV with a sop to digital).”

“The growing participation of young professionals; it establishes a creative tension and generational exchange / debate.”

“Networking opportunities – met several contacts / potential clients in social situations”

“Meeting the commissioners (and Henry!)”

“The Fonz was a revelation – loved his speech.”

Finally, many thanks for all the comments – both critical and praising. We look at all the responses in detail and they are invaluable in helping us plan the conference. So thanks for letting us know your thoughts.
It was heartening to see the positive reaction The CMC evokes.

“We’ll be back” in the summer of 2011 and, as soon as next year’s dates are known, you’ll be the first to hear!
