Well I have had a full day now to process my thoughts on HostingCon (as well as an unwelcome delay getting out of O’Hare) and the overall feeling I have is, ‘do we REALLY have to wait another 12 months to do that again?’ What a great experience! I was preliminarily unsure of the turn-out to expect and was pleasantly surprised to see a vast majority of business associates, past and present, as well as a several new faces.
For those of you who were not able to attend, you truly missed a tremendous opportunity to, ‘Learn, Network, and Grow.’ For those of you who stopped by the iNET Interactive booth and talked with us, thank you. As many of you know, we held a raffle giving away over $9,000 worth of advertising. Congratulations to Malik with PointClickTech.com, Tim with Telpic.com, and Grady with TouchSupport.com for winning! Thank you Tanya with Ensim.com for pulling the winners.
A few suggestions for next year…
1. Larger, more noticeable text on the nametags.
2. PA system that can be heard.
3. Hold it over the weekend…
4. More video games! Thanks EV1 !
For those of you I was able to personally meet, thank you again; for those of you who I was unable to meet....give me a call, or I'll see you next year?
I almost forgot to re-thank the guys from midPhase.com for taking Prohacker, Daveman, and I to dinner Tuesday.... Viva la Fogo de Chow!
I am so glad you mentioned the font on the badges. I thought I was the only one who couldn't read them based on getting old!
I also felt a little funny staring at people's belly buttons trying to read the badges. I could typically read first names, but no shot on the companies. I have talked to so many people over the years by email I was trying to put faces with names.
I thought the conference was very well done with a nice level of attendance.
