It’s all over… and I’ve been in the bar chatting with UK radio people post conference. Most said it was the best NAB for networking so far, but not the best in terms of content in the seminars. A great few days in Barcelona, and our final thoughts follow from Radio Today's Dan Harper.
Some of the NAB virgins were new to the ideas presented the speakers, but a number of long term NAB attendees told me they’d heard some of the stuff before. I asked whether they’d be going again next year and most said yes as it will be held in London.
I had a good chat with all the Jingle people today.
Jones TM have a lot on offer right now and the now legendry Chris Stevens (Mr. Vice President) played me a secret new AC package on my hotel room B&O stereo. It sounds really fresh and different. That’s due out early 2008 so keep it here for more.
Brandy Jingles were one of the new companies exhibiting this year, giving away funky USB MP3 players with their demos on. They’ve just launched a new website www.brandy-jingles.com. The voice on their demos is me by the way!
Reelworld made a custom demo for the conference which looks pretty cool, I must have a listen to that later.
Now it’s time to get back to the bar for some final drinks before the plane back. See you in London next year!
