Thoughts on MEM/Global Messaging 2007

I was lucky enough to travel to Monte Carlo for the MEM and Global Mobile Messaging Conferences courtesy of Airwide Solutions for whom I've been doing a bit of blogging at the Mobile Messaging 2.0 blog and organising the odd podcast or two.

Some interesting feedback on the events from Andrew Darling of WestPier Media and Marcus Ladwig, COO of Peperoni. It's also worth having a listen to some of the podcast interviews.

In addition, Bena Roberts of GoMoNews has also done a round-up of her experience in Monte Carlo as has Maciej of Peperoni of Day 1 and Day 2 including a few choice photos. My photos on the other hand are not the most exciting in the world and are mostly of my sightseeing afternoon on the Thursday, although, there are a few of our Women in Mobile Data meet-up and of the post Meffy's dancing at the Living Room.

There has been a mixed reaction to the event and personally, I was underwhelmed by the whole experience but I put that down to mostly having just come back from a fab conference in Denmark (more on that later) plus being absolutely shattered and also coming down with a lurgy.

Were you there? What did you think of it all? Worth the effort? Will you go again next year?
