ad:tech Chicago Here We Come!
Another great thing about working at Viget is that we each get a conference budget of $100k every year. Kidding, it's not $100k--but old man humor lives on.
Anyhow, Ryan and I will be using said conference budget to attend this year's ad:tech in Chicago. And when it comes to digital marketing, it's the only place to be, when you think about it. The conference begins next Tuesday, August 5 and lasts all the way until August 6 at ye olde Navy Pier. The list of speakers looks great, and I'm really looking forward to cramming as much into my head as possible.
ad:tech seems to be past the "What is social media?" stage and instead -- judging from the talk titles -- it looks like the discussion will require at least a "New Media 101" prerequisite. I'm sure we will learn a lot!
If you're going, let us know--or email Josh when you're there, or feel free to follow all the conference goodness on Ryan's Twitter stream, which will be on overdrive during the event. We're looking forward to letting you know how it goes!
