    ad-Tech New York 2009 Interviews

    WebmasterRadio.FM sent a large crew to New York last week to cover and participate in the enormous ad:Tech NYC 2009 conference and trade show. ad:Tech NY09, which moved from its previous home at the Midtown Hilton to the expansive Javits Center on the Hudson River, was by far the largest and most well attended ad:Tech conference WebmasterRadio.FM has ever participated in. Our coverage began the night before ad:Tech opened at the XY7.com NoBull3 party. Held at the only bar in Midtown Manhattan with a mechanical bull, Johnny Utah's, the XY7.com NoBull3 event was a night of drinking, networking and bull riding. The big hook of the night was the bikini bull riding contest but the real contest was held between WebmasterRadio.FM personalities Jim Hedger, SEGuru and Johnny Brasco. Hedger won though Johnny Brasco disqualified himself by physically assaulting the bull in an attempt to beat it up. Charges were not laid. Estimates of attendance ranged from 15,000 to 20,000. Seeing such numbers in a massive building like a baseball stadium or hockey arena is exciting. Spending time with such numbers at one of the biggest and most diverse industry conferences is inspiring. For the first hours of the conference, such numbers can produce incredible line-ups at registration, including the approximately 90-minute line for registration.
