    Default Your thoughts on Budapest?????

    Hi Guys

    After returning from one week in Budapest I would love to hear yout houghjts on the event and id you get value from it.

    I have to say this was by far the best ever event I have been to, now i am sure if that is due to the venue/location or the fact that my program went live 2 -3 weeks ago or the very cool merchandise we had but the traffic that hit my stand was simply crazy, the first day was so busy I only to *** twice the whole day and not a chance of getting any food.

    As always the tough job is now the follow up after the event but i have to say hats off to Alex and his crew those girls rock.

    Please share your thoughts.

    Thanks

    Shaun

    I agree it was a great conference.

    From my perspective, lots of good conversations, lots of new relationships, and all in a great location.

    Couldn't ask for more.

    I really loved it, I was happy to put faces to the names at last, but one thing I needed to realize, that I need to train for the 3 consecutive days drinking/being party animal next time lol

    As it was my first conference, I cannot really make relations to other conferences, but it was a real blast. And yes, now off to the follow-ups

    Many thanks for Alex and the girls for organizing this! I can't hardly wait for London!

    I had a great time!

    Budapest is an amazing city and I also had great conversations and met with a bunch of great people!

    I hadn't been to a show for about 3 years and I can say that this one was definitely one to remember. Can't wait for the next!

    Kudos to Alex and the team, they all did a fantastic job.

    This was my best conference to date and I am even thinking it beat the good old days of Las Vegas CAC?

    Venue was great, hotel was great (although my sucked a little), the city was great and the company was also fantastic for the meals we put on.

    One down side was that I was being stalked the whole trip!! You know anything about that Trish.....Simone?

    Poor thing Martyn, you must have been looking over your shoulder the whole conference.

    I thought it was an excellent conference, which encompassed all the key ingredients. Great hotel, friendly city, superb nightlife and sunshine on all four days we were there. Couldn't have asked for more

    Of course the food, how could I forget to mention it. Friday night's dinner was particularly top notch

    It was nice to meet Michael and Todd, and the sessions I attended were by and large useful. It was my first visit to Budapest, but I'll certainly go back.

    Thank you to Alex for organising this.

    I did not go but i sent an employee to attend.I feel that somebody other than myself needs to suffer through the long plane ride and all the late nights.I think they should last a week get the partying out of the way then go on to business .Alex will hate me for that suggestion LOL

    Lol good idea, I just got used to the partying and hated to wake up in the morning and a lot of interesting panels started around 10 and 11 am in the dawn lol, so I missed them.

    One of the best yet and so many people...5 days there and there are still people I didn't get to catch up with lol.

    Should make Budapest a fixture IMO - great place and right up there with CAC Amsterdam and the "LAC", but in a warmer location (than London!).

    Nice to see you again after so long Trish. Hope you had a great trip back.

    We should spare a thought for Conrad from Star Partner too, poor bloke - 18hr flight there, never got out of the hotel room and now has quarantine before he can go back

    I am really sorry that i did not attend the Budapest conference and take some time out out from my very busy schedule I have at the moment.

    I was in Budapest around 15 years ago and it would have been a great chance to see what the diference is today............next time I hope.

    I see that one girl really enjoyed herself "Bodog Becky" saw all the pictures she posted on facebook.............she always has a swinging time !!!!!!!!

    I hope to see you all in London 2010 and lets hope the snow stays away this time so we can all get home after the conference. Was not so bad for me as I extended my UK stay to visit my parents up North in Yorkshire.

    Waiting now for all the pictures to be posted from michael & steven.

    have a wonderful week to all and you will soon get over your sore heads....lol

    BAC was definitely one of the better shows in a long time - great venue & turnout!

    I think the move from Barca brought out many new faces which is really beneficial for everyone - especially affiliates in Eastern Europe. As big of a turnout as it did have, I think there is room for growth if Alex & co were to host there again next year and I doubt there are any complaints from anyone who attended this year.

    Great work guys!

    One of the best I've been to. The decision to move it to Bucharest was a great one. The weather was much more bearable and everyone was incredibly nice.

    I don't remember seeing so many models at one conference.

    Robin (from Europartners) was fantastic and kudos to Alex and the rest of the organizers - I've heard nothing but good things.
