Heading to New York next week
November 5, 2009 by Dave Haynes
The guys at the Rainbow Bridge border post at Niagara Falls (how many border crossings have a natural wonder out the passenger window?) will be grilling me again on Monday morning as I head down to Buffalo and on to JFK to spend most of the week in NYC.
There are a few things on, and I am partyicularly looking forward to seeing some new technology getting unveiled at a private event Thursday, but the main reason is the Kioskcom/Digital Signage Show, which show manager Lawrence Dvorchik has been on me to attend for at least a couple of years.
The show is Tuesday and Wednesday and the speaker line-up is filled with names who, mostly, are not the usual suspects at these sorts of events. Sometimes the usual suspects are there because they are good speakers and people want to see them, but I am happy not to see some names yet again. I don’t usually get a chance to listen to speakers because I am chained to some vendor booth, but blissfully free, I can wander in for a listen.
That noted, I have seen a lot of press releases and Tweets to suggest I want to have a good look around the show floor, as there is some interesting stuff being shown. YCD has new ad campaign software and this is a chance to see some of UK-based Signage Live’s stuff, among several things.
If you are going and want to meet up, let me know – dave (at) sixteen-nine.net
There will be a few Preset people about, including me, Paul Flanigan and David Weinfeld, as well as a new member we can’t … quite … annnounce … yet. Hellberg at home babysitting. Wife in China.
