We’ve finally recovered from AdTech, and what a show it was! The sheer amount of people, ideas and innovation is enough to make your head spin! We’ve said it before, but there really is no substitution for some face time…not the Apple kind either. In this busy world we live in surrounded by computer and gadgets that keep us connected, it’s refreshing to make an in-person connection and put a face to the name. The show, as always was teeming with marketers, publishers, vendors and technology providers ready to connect, and make history. We had some fantastic conversations and look forward to moving forward with some meaningful partnerships & client relationships of our own.
Of course, we gave away another iPad 2 at the show! Check out the gallery below for pics of the team at the show, a video of the iPad drawing and an interview with the winner!

2. Who was the first person you told after you won and what was their reaction?
A team member of mine was with me when I won! I’m sure you heard her scream! But not including her – I texted my Dad right away because he knows I’ve been wanting an iPad. He said, “You’re kidding?! AMAZING!”.
3. Have you ever won anything else?
4. What do you plan on using the iPad for?
I’ve been using it more than my laptop since I won it. I use it daily just to read the news, check Facebook, Twitter, etc. I am going to use it as a reader as well but have not purchased any books on it yet.
