Limelight Attends The Internet Show in Sydney
Just last month, Limelight Digital was invited to be a part of The Internet Show 2011 in Sydney.
Due to my background in trade shows, I was very much looking forward to attending The Internet Show as part of Team Limelight. We had the great pleasure of attending the show as the creative design and strategy partner of our good friends Ektron. By the way, people of the blogosphere, if you are looking for a content management system you really need to check out these guys as they have the best product on the market by far.
Normally, once a trade show stand had been set-up and my client was happy I was out of the door like a flash – leaving the actual business of talking to people in my wake. This time, however, I was going to be working the floor.
After a slow start I was working the crowd a la Eddie Murphy in his Raw days (minus the blasphemy). Interestingly, I found myself having a thoroughly enjoyable time.

Our task was helped by the awe inspiring 3D screen we had on the stand (no glasses required people… I repeat NO GLASSES). Just so you know; through our partner Post Op Group, we are able to distribute this magical technology and are able to create 3D content that will mesmerise the general public and blow their minds.
With our show stopping, 3D technology attracting crowds of people we had a captive audience that we could chat to. We met a lot of interesting people who had a wide range of ideas, requirements and knowledge.
All-in-all, the show was a great success and we look forward to forging strong working relationships and partnerships with the people we met at The Internet Show, 2011. We’ll keep you posted on the next trade show we’ll be attending so if you are in the area you can come down and join in the fun times.
