The second day of Web Directions began (for the Freshview team at least) at a more reasonable hour. The opening speaker Jeffrey Veen drew plenty of applause we heard loudly from outside in the expo hall.
During the breaks, we spoke to tons of existing customers, interested newcomers and the occasional person yet to work out they were in the wrong part of the convention centre.
During day 2 attendees also had their last chances to grab a code word to win the sweet MacBook Air we were giving away, and there was a rush of entries after the talks by Jina Bolton (shown below) and Laurel Papworth. The entry bucket was soon stuffed to overflowing.
Before the closing talk, the draw took place on the main stage, revealing University of Technology, Sydney lead designer Andrew Francois to be the lucky winner. Andrew taunted the rest of the crowd briefly, before realising his peril and coming down to to collect his prize!
From an exhibitor’s point of view, Web Directions was again an excellent use of our time. We met face to face with some of you guys and girls, and we got some great live feedback about our upcoming improvements to Campaign Monitor and MailBuild.
So a big ‘well done’ to the Web Directions team of John and Maxine, and thanks to everyone who came up and said hello.
Finally, a extra special congratulations to our friends and Campaign Monitor customers Propeller Global for taking out the McFarlane Prize against strong competition.
