I attended The Massive Tech Show this week at Canada Place in Vancouver, where local businesses can explore technology through the various scheduled events at the interactive exhibits and daylong flurry of presentations. It’s a great event where participants can take advantage of the networking opportunities from the businesses involved and the many sponsors in attendance.
There was a tremendous line-up of speakers and keynotes at the conference: Leonard Brody of NowPublic fame, and Kerry Munro, Yahoo! Canada GM, to name a mere two. I was lucky enough to stumble into Captain Ajax himself, in the flesh, upon arrival (many thanks for the ticket!) and sat in on his Blogging For Business presentation. It was excellent – to the point, concise and informative for those people looking to the blogosphere for community outreach but not sure how and what and why it’s important to their business. Andre covered all the bases. Check out some of my flickr photos taken during his presentation, and find his slideshow on his session over at his blog.
I once again enjoyed my small stint of being a Bryght girl, while I briefly relieved Roland of his booth duties so he could grab a quick bite. And then I was relieved shortly after when Scales arrived – I think together we made a quick sale or two!!
As always at these types of events, I met some good people, and it provided the chance to catch up with the old. I’d recommend it to anyone in Vancouver (or use it as your excuse to get here for a day or two!). The sessions and speakers are good people to meet and learn from, but if for nothing else, head there just to wander the floor of the exhibits – lots to see, lots to do, plenty to take in.
