I’m here. Hungry, but here. I had the fortune of getting together with my mentor last night and it was the perfect way to start this trip. But we let the talking and catching up trump everything, including eating and sleeping. So, I’m hungry and tired. But it’s going to be a good day.
Here in NYC, this show seems smaller than the one in Vegas earlier in the year. This is my first time at the Javits Center so maybe it’s optical-illusion-like and it’s really not smaller. Just seems to be. Not a bad thing – in fact, this is one of the things I like about this show – it has a small-town feel and I can certainly appreciate that.
Seems very stuffy this morning. I’m seeing lots of people walking in in their suits. Not me. I’m going to get a breakdown of audience attendees that I’ll share. But I say this should be a no-tie affair.
The show organizers – Lawrence and team – are good. They are personable (getting back to the small-town feel), full of enthusiasm and ideas and most of all, want to put on a show that will be of value to the vast range of attendees needed in this industry.
I’m looking forward to catching up with some of my Preset buddies and hearing from many different people – sessions look to be diverse and interesting.
