Excellent report. I have to say that NetCracker really did it right. Nice colorful stand, great refreshments and sweets, and don't even get me started on the cheese plate at Happy Hour. I noticed their PR reps were looking worried when all of us editors arrived at the stand with wide eyes and empty stomachs but I have to wonder: Isn't that what it's all about?

Without doubt Coffee Angel was offering the best caffeine fix, but as it was across the road from the event, it was not on the show floor and therefore not eligible for these prestigious awards. A technicality, you may say, but we do have some standards, you know... 


 


 I bow to your greater research into the vino collapso available on the booths. I trust you enjoyed said research...  :-)

I'll second the wine nomination. (I wasn't actually there, but does that really matter?)


For coffee -- hey, if it's the ONLY coffee, I don't care if it's across three streets and guarded by lions. Coffee Angel would've been my best friend. (Pic from last year: http://www.lightreading.com/blog.asp?doc_id=208357)


No Daisy Rollo again, eh? See, that's why I never go to Management World.

Ten points out of how many?


Apart from snarfing some cheese, I didn't pick up any of the freebies as I had no room left in my bag once I'd put Keith's book in it...

Surprised you got any work done after troling the booths for freebies! However, ten points for originality, well done!
