The first-ever WHD.usa took place on May 19-20, 2015 at the remote and cozy 7Springs Ski & Mountain Resort in Pennsylvania! Despite delayed and canceled flights, a total of 800 attendees, including a high number of C-level decision makers, made it to the venue. 50 partners presented the latest innovations and developments to the visitors and took the opportunity to set up meetings and establish new business connections.
The live interview with Jimmy Wales and the keynotes of Christopher Mondini, Alex Polvi & Tim Wu were amazing, but our partners’ sessions and discussions were also worth seeing and left something to be desired.
The evening events provided plenty of fun for everyone – with a more quiet start the night before the event, loosening up on Day 1 and feeling almost like family on Day 2. After The Joseph sisters performed at the ConneXion party, things got wild with Snap! on stage. He got the crowds up and dancing! The night.TALK with former Reddit GM Erik Martin followed by the executive.DINNER was also a highlight and included some interesting discussions about the hosting client’s perspective.
Last but not least, the great variety of networking.ACTIVITIES complemented the two days of trade fair and conference. They were the perfect ending to the event and equally well received by both attendees and exhibitors.
With the following impressions of the event we look forward to WHD.usa in May, 2016 in Arizona!
