Hey, I’m going to the East Coast Summit for the first time, and I had a few questions for staff or otherwise experienced goers.
-What’s the dress code? Formal? Semi-Formal? Doesn’t matter? Are you going to make me pack ties, when that space could so much more effectively be used for holding camera gear?
-What sort of technology do people bring to the classes? Laptops? Camcorders? Their own personal transcriptionists?
-Any helpful tips for the trip?
-Will B&H be open that week? 😉
Hi Jim –
I won’t be attending this year but I do live and work in NYC. If you have any questions about NY lemme know.
Personally, I would think the dress code for any conference is "If they don’t arrest you, that’s fine with us".
B&H should be open that week but check the website (the place is a zoo during lunch and after-work hours – go from 10AM-11AM or 2PM-4PM).
If you need a list of decent but not arm/leg restaurants, lemme know.
Birdcat is right, if you dressed appropriately for the public, you have met our dress code requirement. There actually isn’t a dress code requirement. But, most people dress casual– business casual would be on the high end for our events. Do leave room for your camcorder. There will be a contest on Friday/Saturday in which you can participate in and you may want your camcorder for that. I won’t say more as it would give you an unfair advantage.
See you there.
mmontgomery, thanks for the advice!
Hey birdcat, if we land at the Newark airport, where’s the closest place to get a metro pass for the busses/subways, and how much should they cost us?
This should be fun. I’ve ben to other conferences in the past, but never one of Videomaker’s. I look forward to the experience.
It looks like B&H will be closed for the majority of the conference, however they will reopen on Sunday at 10 AM. In the past year, I’ve made 4 trips out to NYC, each time B & H was closed except once. That one time it was raining so hard I decided against making the trip.
Jim, it would be nice to meet you in person (and anyone else from the Forum attending the East Coast Summit). Maybe we can do a meet and greet and the local watering hole after conference hours. What days are you going to be at the Summit?
Anyone else interested in a meet up outside the conference chime in.
That sounds fine by me. I’ll actually be at all three days. My wife (who is also my business partner/better half/considerably more attractive) is going to be at the first two. However, I’ll be in town from Thursday to the following Thursday, so I can see the sights, shoot some footage for a few side projects, and meet a few friends from the Internet who live in the area.So in short, yeah, I’ll be around!
