Content Boost Invades Miami Today to Spread the Word About Content Marketing

IMG_20141204_113151137Can I just say I love having Wi-Fi on a flight? At some 10,000 feet in the air, I decided it would be the perfect opportunity to talk to all of you about what’s on the Content Boost road map for this week. As you read this, I am en route to sunny Miami with several members of the Content Boost team to attend TMC’s biannual technology and communications convention, ITEXPO.

I know what you are thinking… how the heck did we get in the air from New York when 5,000 flights were grounded by 11 a.m.? Well it took an hour on the tarmac to de-ice the plane, a TON of anxiety-ridden conversations and a lot of patience and we were on our way. #ThankYouDelta.

ITEXPO Content Marketing Workshops Return to Miami

IMG_20141204_113151137It seems like just yesterday that it was August and our team was gearing up for our first-ever ITEXPO content marketing workshop.

It’s especially hard to believe considering the fact that Sunday night I left a city that was a balmy 80 degrees—sporting shorts and a tank top—for a city that hours later was pummeled by inches of snow.

But our week in sunny Miami was truly awe-inspiring. For five days our team had the chance to meet with countless companies, to hear the tales of their company, and to witness marketing and branding at its best. From the impressive trade show booth displays to the must-have swag (thanks CallTower for my awesome lip balm!), ITEXPO was buzzing with best-in-class marketing tactics. And we all took notice.

ITEXPO is Around the Corner: Do You Have a Story to Tell?

shutterstock_143009551Every year, the weeks leading up to TMC’s ITEXPO event, one of the largest business technology conferences, feel a bit like the weeks leading up to the first day of school.  The excitement is palpable, the nervous energy is at an all-time high and everyone is wondering, “How will the first few days go?”

That’s because whether you are a sponsor, exhibitor, speaker or participant, you understand—as is the case with any trade show—that your time at the convention is valuable. You understand that every second spent on the trade show floor and in a session are crucial seconds spent away from your home office. Simply put, you understand that you need to make every minute count.
