There are a lot of adults in our society who also wanted to have a good information that they need especially that this can help them in finding a job to support the needs of their family.

And doubly silly because people will seek out those peer-to-peer opportunities whether they’re formally built into the conferences or not.

Hmm, when I saw you on the #ephh hangout the other week, Sue, you weren’t sporting any horns :). Yes, meetings can provide a good environment for formal learning and I’m not saying they shouldn’t be used for this.

But a meeting that uses a good peer-centered format provides invaluable opportunities for your employees to learn from peers outside your organization; i.e. from a much wider pool of experience and expertise than they usually have access to. A company that decrees that conferences can only be sources of the 10% formal learning its employees need is ignoring inter-organizational resources that feed the 90% learning needs of its employees. That’s a pretty silly thing to do in my opinion: it’s likely to frustrate employees who want and need to learn this way and also to provide a source of competitive advantage to rival companies.

Not that I disagree with your premiss, but I have to play devil’s advocate.
