This was my first IAML Congress, which initially was not only exciting, but also terrifying. I needn’t have been nervous however because, from the first-time-attendees session at the start and throughout the week, everyone was extremely kind and welcoming. The real benefit of a conference like this is the chance to connect with colleagues from all over the world. You hear not only about their work but also about their lives. It is such an enriching experience on so many levels!
