Well we are about a 3 weeks removed from the festivities known as FITC and it was an amazing event from start to finish. In the following series of blog posts I will be giving insights about my time and experiences at the event. I might just even give a behind the scenes look from my time in the speakers lounge (Cue Epic Music).
Well day one started for me with a quick 40 minute flight from Ottawa to Toronto followed up by an hour long bus ride to Downtown (Note to self next year fly Porter). I checked in to my hotel (Bond Place) and headed over to the Hilton to check in at FITC. While at FITC Day One I had the pleasure to attend some very creative/interesting talks but the one that stands out amongst was UX Doesn’t Exist by Kurt Krumme, I highly recommended you all check out his presentation as well as my own at http://fitc.influxis.com/archive/. After a long day of travel, not eating and having my mind blown creatively I clearly went back to my hotel and had a quite night……WRONG. I headed right to the speakers dinner where I had very interesting conversations with other industry experts. After a toast to the late Hillman Curtis (RIP Sir you were a great inspiration to many and will continue to be for many years to come.) we all headed over to the FITC Opening Party presented by Lunch at which there was tons of networking, dancing and very questionable appetizers……… Stay Tuned for Day’s 2 and 3 coming soonish.
