SES, San Jose part one…
So, time once again for the big show of the year. It’s SES, San Jose and this year I flew in from New York a day early to get in before the screaming hoards 🙂 I actually had a private dinner appointment in San Francisco on the Saturday night before the show started.
It was interesting to note just how many people have started coming in early as I saw a number of regular speakers in the Marriott bar on Saturday night and quite a few at breakfast on Sunday morning.
There’s a whole lot of work goes into pulling this show together and it starts months before the event. So the first thing the Incisive team do when they arrive is what’s known as “the walk through.” This means they check the fruit of their labor ensuring that all of the rooms are set up and ready with all necessary audio-visual kit.
If you were at the show (any SES, for that matter) then you’ll recognize the folks in this shot. Without Kevin Ryan, Marilyn Crafts, Jackie Ortez and Stew Quealy there’d be no show. These guys are truly professional event organizers and I love them, each and everyone just like family.
Absolutely not! Matt is one of the nicest guys on the entire planet. He couldn’t resist geting in front of the camera to practise his moves once he’s elected president of America.
SES, San Jose part two in the making!
