On Tuesday, the conference officially kicked off with doors opening at 8:30am. The first talk started once everyone was inside. It was a packed day with 7 talks closing up at 6pm. Our table was centrally located and was stocked with plenty of t-shirts and stickers. Throughout the event there was a good flow of traffic, but at times it was a mob scene, where we’d be talking to groups of ten or more at a time.
We closed up Tuesday at the Smashing Conference After Party, hosted at Emporium. There were so many great networking opportunities and a chance to play with one of the largest selections of video and pinball games around!
On Wednesday there was another 6 great speakers with the conference closing down shortly after 5pm. We had a busy day sharing Scrivito with the visitors and really enjoyed hearing feedback and potential applications for our CMS.
Smashing Conference was an incredibly well managed event, ran by a team from Barcelona. We were really happy to work with them and we’re exploring potential sponsorship opportunities for the other locations the conference is held at. In SF the conference was hosted at the Palace of Fine Arts, which featured an amazing structure built for the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition. It goes without saying, that SF always delivers a great network of people and plenty of culture around every corner.
