Macworld | iWorld 2012 Recap

Our Company / January 31, 2012 / Admin

Seven Macworlds. Sounds like a lot right? I thought so too until I talked to some real veterans of the show. A few people that I encountered had been attending Macworld for 20+ years. So, even though I’m not holding or breaking any records with my measly seven attendances, I’m still proud to have rep’d Marketcircle for this many years.

We had plenty of visitors to our tiny little booth, affectionally referred to as ‘lemonade stands’ or ‘phone booths’. This is the only show that we do that is attended by only Mac and iOS users. It’s so great to interact with customers face to face after sometimes years of relationships based solely on email & phone exchanges. I hope that every Marketcircle employee can experience this one day to see what great people are out there using our software. I somehow feel guilty to be the one that always gets to go, but knowing how much I love California, (my hometown is beautiful SF) I don’t think the higher ups dare to bench me.

Speaking of hometowns, I experienced one of the best ‘firsts’ of my life on Sunday January 22nd at 3:00pm Pacific.

49ers playoff game

Aly and I scored tickets (thanks to Abbi of FastMac) to the 49ers–Giants game. I was finally able to attend a Niners game in the legendary Candlestick Park where the best quarterback in the history of the game (my opinion and I’m sticking to it) Joe Montana himself played the game.  To say the experience was memorable would be the understatement of the year.

And much like Candlestick, Macworld is home to the giants of the Mac industry. You cannot substitute meeting and interacting with some of the best developers from all over the world. Having us all in one OS X zone allowed us to refer traffic to each other and feed of each other’s energy. It was great way to spend time with our fellow Mac and iOS developers.

I’m very much looking forward to continuing the tradition of traveling to San Francisco each year to participate in this event.
