It’s that time again. Another CTIA! Very pleased to see it back in New Orleans where the show was held pre-Katrina. Mighty will be there with the Urban Airship crew, who has hired the above antebellum mansion to throw a low-country crawfish boil party. After attending this event twice a year for the past 10, new experiences are needed to keep this act of businessing exciting. Throwing house parties in fun areas of the trade show city has been a major success for us and our clients, and this one should raise a new bar. See you there!
We are headed over to one of our fave faux biker bars in the city tonite to celebrate with Karen Blondell. She has been an independent PR consultant for ages, rocking the mobile and gaming scenes, and decided to go full time and take over Candace’s job leading the mobile practice at Sparkpr.
We have worked with Karen for the past two years and are just delighted to see the match made. While we were at Spark, we joined up with Karen to throw drinks parties at major conferences for press friends and clients. The first was a margarita and taco party at a beach house in San Diego for CTIA last year. We have hired out penthouse suites at the newest hotels in Vegas for CTIA and CES, and recently had a ladies-only dinner party in our apartment in Barcelona for MWC. After doing the conference circuit for ages, events like these really make the shows fun and it’s simply a great use of time to meet, introduce, brief, connect, and tipple in the flesh.
We expect this fine tradition to continue!
