Unfortunately, on the first night of CTIA – I got a stomach bug and the only party I attended was Myriad. But it was a super party and I was greeted at the door with “welcome the fabulous GoMo News”… you know that I love flattery!
Before I go on about the parties I have to shout out to Sprint for the most amazing media lounge with food, drinks, smoothies, vegan stuff (yey) and all sorts. It was a huge treat and I also finally demoed Google Wallet and got a great interview (up next week). I hardly write about Sprint but with such great focus on us at the show and really super staff and interviews – that is going to change….
This is a great start to CTIA a morning show setting the pace and scene for the event. We are delighted to have the CEO and President of Polycom involved and the VP of Public Affairs at CTIA. Please watch below
Before I headed over to CTIA I had a great chat with the super guys over at LightReading.com. They are doing the show daily and I asked them if I could link-in to super news from the show daily as I was too busy moderating conferences and panels to work at the show. They agreed and here are some links to tablet news and other hotties.
First interview with David Marutiak the new CEO of Scanbuy Europe based in London.
Another great video from the MMA Forum in London. I have to say it was a super event for getting brands and agencies talking. Here is Karim Khalifa from Digital Republic
