Trade Shows and Media Events: 100 Lanyrds and Counting

July 3, 2014

Show Badges

Partial list of events and conferences I’ve helped organize and attended: CES, E3, NAB, CEDIA, CeBIT (Germany), GDC (Game Developers Conference), Networld+interop, Streaming Media East/West, IDF (Intel Developer Forum), PCExpo, ISTE (The International Society for Technology in Education, previously NECC, National Educational Computing Conference).

Microsoft conferences and press events: Microsoft’s Management Summit, CEO Summit, Sneak Peak, Xtreme, EXchange, Build/MIX, TechEd (now part of Microsoft Ignite), Microsoft Global Exchange, Microsoft’s Marketing Conference (MGX), Worldwide Partner Conference, major product launches: Windows 95, Windows 2000, Windows Me, Windows XP (launch and RTM), Windows Media Center, Xbox.

Sounds like I’ve done it all. Not quite! The three events I haven’t (yet) worked but hope to one day: Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Sundance Film Festival, and SXSW in Austin.

With my PCs at Comdex (abbreviation for Computer Dealers’ Exhibition). Comdex was held in Las Vegas each November from 1979 until its demise in 2003. It used to be the biggest and baddest boy around. It’s all gone, supplanted by CES. Why? Because consumer electronics ARE computers now, and vice-versa.
