Great post, thanks. 
In my experience, delegates don't want to take the time at the end of a conference to complete a questionnaire. Particularly a long questionnaire where many of the questions are based on profiling the delegate rather than really uncovering what they thought.
In our business, we have tried two alternative approaches with some success. Firstly we provide a way for delegates to give feedback and comment throughout the event, in some cases even before it starts. This gives them the chance to let you know instantly when something is bugging them. It also gives the organizer the opportunity to resolve the issue, ensuring that the delegate is satisfied in the end.
We have also looked at how delegates work in teams. For example, when there are round table discussions or other interactive sessions, we use these as opportunities for the delegates to give group feedback. This can be far more useful and insightful than traditional approaches.
Based on these learnings we have built technologies that enable this to happen for event organizers.

Check out our QnA screen at the European Commission and Enterprise Ireland's WIRE 2013 Conference this week.
Our system was used to ask questions, report on sessions and give feedback on the event.
Great interaction from the audience and speakers. Well done all

Brilliant
Most billboards simply show words and pictures, but this series of urban advertisements offers passers-by a helping hand with some of life's little moments.
