Ad-Tech: Day 1 is for Posers

by Josh Todd on November 11, 2009

Ad-Tech NY 2009 has come and gone, and I had the pleasure of flying out to NYC from sunny CO to check it out.  This was the first Ad-Tech show to take place at the Javits Convention Center, since their contract with the hotel ran out.  This was a good thing, since the entire Exhibit Hall could be on one floor and it felt very alive for the entire show.

My partner and I were joking that “Day 1 is for Posers”, because we got so much quality networking done on Day 2, without the massive registration lines and aisle blockage that you typically get on Day 1.  For me and my company, it was a very successful trip and we are very excited about the next few months.

We even got to enjoy some time off at a live taping of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and a great afterparty at Pacha NYC. and a cool stop at the top of 30 Rockefeller Plaza (including the weird/trippy/geeky/awesome Breezeway Interactive Light Display room).  Instead of showing you boring pics of the Exhibit Hall and close-ups of the food we ate, here are some of the highlights of the trip for me:

Josh, I'm glad you guys had a good time up there, as did the Elite Clicks Media team. I was happy that it wasn't too cold and I had the opportunity to see the Yanks win the World Series.

Will you be attending ASW?

What is written on your wrist?

I'm not going to ASW this year, my first son is due during the conference! As for my arm, it's Hebrew that says "God of Salvation", which is the meaning of my name (Joshua) in Hebrew.
