SES, San Jose part two…
So after Brad and I drank San Jose dry it was time for an early night in bed… So early it was the next day, of course 🙂
And stuff had to be done. Come on guys, it’s the biggest show of the year – let’s build a booth!
Once again, we were very orange and had lots of hand sanitizer to give away. The hand sanitizer is a very big deal with us Acronymmers. It’s not that we think our customers are trying to touch is with their dirty mitts. It’s because after the sponsor mixer when everyone has been eating appetizers with their fingers, we’re always closer than the rest rooms 🙂
I always enjoy organizing a VIP get together of staff and industry big-wigs at the San Jose bash. This year we started at the Yahoo! gig at the Paragon in San Jose.
As you can see, it was very purple, as usual and they gave away many purpelly things including cocktails with ice cubes that lit up inside your drink.
We had drinks in the Cielo bar which sits right on the roof of the hotel. I’ve done lots of pics of that. But I’ve never seen one quite this artistic.
And much as it came from my camera, I certainly can’t take any credit for the shot. This was Andy Beal just messing around with my camera. That’s messing around? Andy that’s pure art. Are you sure you’re in the right job 😉
And so, we moved downstairs to the wonderful Citrus restaurant. Here’s the crowd snugly tucked in the back of the restaurant (or front, depending which way you come in 🙂
The delicious Kendall Allen has a curiously, curious look on her face making me think something curious, very curious, or even curiouser may have been going on.
It’s always nice to catch up with old friends at these events. There are always some great bits and bytes of great business advice. And there’s always “love you like a brother you old bastard…” type advice too 😉 Me and my great pal Fredrick Marckini managed to catch up having missed each other at my own SES show in London.
There was so much more and another million pictures, but I just don’t have enough time to squeeze them all in.
Thanks to everyone for making the SES, San Jose 2008 show such a great time and great success. See you all again for more of the same next year.
Roll on Chicago!
