I love trade shows! It’s a fantastic opportunity to check out what’s new in the industry and network with like-minded individuals. And next week I have the amazing opportunity to attend not one, but two in one week! On Sunday, my awesome photographer, Nick McGlynn from Random Night Out and I travel to Detroit as guests of Ford Motor Company for the North american International Auto Show. Nick is a car freak and I’m more of an enthusiast but both of us are beyond excited to attend the Design Fantasy Camp Ford has planned for us, as well as walk the trade show floor and see all the cool new cars coming out. This will be several firsts for me: my first time in the Motor City (or Motown, if you will), my first auto show and my first inside look at the whole car design process. Damn, this is going to be so frickin cool! I’ll be tweeting and blogging along the way so I hope you’ll follow along on this amazing adventure.
From there we fly to Las Vegas for the Consumer Electronics Show, or as I like to call it, the gadget geek’s wet dream. I’m so crude! It’s my first time at CES, but Nick is an old pro at navigating the halls of gadgets and from what he says, we’ll have our grubby little paws all over every imaginable electronic device. And of course shmoozing with our fellow geeksters at every type of celeb filled party imaginable. Lucky for us, the old adage, ‘what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas’ still applies!
Stay tuned MUL fans! We’ll be posting all the juicy stories soon!
