Trade Shows and Media Events: 100 Lanyards 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), the Sundance Film Festival, and SXSW in Austin.

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! I have not yet attended the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona as an exhibitor — though I’ve been to the city during the conference. Ditto for Comi-Con in San Diego.

Last Comdex
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.
