Monday I got back from the MadinSpain conference that took place in Madrid Spain. We had a wounderful time hearing some nice talks, drinking brilliant spanish beer and taking part in the strange madrid nightlife.
The conference was anounced as “International Design Event” and we were a bit suprised when we noticed that only one third of the talks were given in english. They gave away headsets which we plugged inside a box next to the seat. So we felt a bit like in a UN conference…
We hope that the conference will become more international in the future. I’m totally cool with spanish speaking speakers. But a more international audience would be nice (there were mostly madrid design students), since the networking thing is obviously a big part of this conference thing.
