The organizers of the Fest did a Fantastic job. From the time that we arrived at around 9:45am we were treated more like friends or family by everyone that we met. I think part of there success is the fact that the whole thing even though it is well organized is still a very relaxed atmosphere; almost reminds me of the 70’s back in Palo Alto California.
I think alot of there success is also due to the fact that they promo to all and for all..they have ads on the radio, Facebook, WordPress, Twitter ,and I am sure more, that I have been able to find..most of the non teckie promos were geared more towards family’s and Micro$oft users..so in their words..
“…free, and all ages are welcome. Registration is not required to attend—just show up and have fun!…”
“..Family event bring everyone…”
“…There are exhibits and presentations that will appeal to business people, students, hobbyists and families…”
Like I said in my previous post .. I still feel that here was one common thread that all the booths seemed to have a hard time with; Maybe because I was a Carny and a D.J. back in the day..I find it easy to talk to people strangers or not..if we are going to be running a booth, we need to be the ones reaching out to them not them to us..kind of like a pitch man does or a carny does or a D.J. does with music ..
The Organizer’s of the LFNW did a great job on reaching out to us and the community it is up to us to reach out to the community that they have brought to us…
