We knew Digital Summit in Atlanta will be very special from the fun Opening Session on Tuesday afternoon from Daniel Pink, the bestselling author of the book «The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing» and very educational afternoon sessions with presenters from IBM, Google to National Geographic.
The second day as we were pulling into the parking lot at the beginning of the breakfast event — it was already full. Wow — that’s quite interesting, given into account that Cobb Energy center used to host thousand people events and can accommodate big crowds. Digital Summit did not disappoint — a wide range of many educational sessions and evening networking event were fun and engaging. Our favorite session was presented by event sponsors — Genius Monkey, «Programmatic Evolved: Using Artificial Intelligence to Target, Measure, Convert & Repeat». The subject of using user data in digital marketing is very controversial right now, and it was nice to see the presentation educating summit attendees on it. Organizers of the event also gave you time to visit sponsor booths and win great prizes with short networking breaks in between the sessions. We were somewhat surprised to meet marketing folks from Emory University and Georgia Tech at this event, but it’s good to know that universities in Atlanta are keeping on track with the latest Digital Advertising trends.
The day at the Atlanta Digital Summit went very fast and before we knew it was a closing networking reception. We had a chance to meet several event sponsors from Watson Marketing and Convertica and network with few event attendees. Unfortunately, the reception was over very quickly with folks heading home in hopes of beating the traffic. Hopefully, next year event, if held in Atlanta, will be as successful as this one.
13-14 September, right after Webmaster Access 2017, OrbitSoft attended DmExco, which is considered as one of the leading digital advertising exhibitions in Europe. 50 700 visitors from all around the world and more than 1 000 exhibitors attended DmExco this year.
DmExco is the global business and innovation exhibition, which enables to see new trends and to define the business potential of the future projects. This is the great meeting place for media and marketing professionals, technical specialists, and designers.
We were happy to attend this very important event in the digital advertising world. The endless flow of meetings, training, and seminars gave us excellent experience and new connections.
It was very productive European tour for our company. Thanks to all participants for making DmExco a success! For us it was a pleasure to meet with you!
The beginning of September was very busy for OrbitSoft – our team planned to visit 2 European exhibitions at once. The first in the list was Webmaster Access, which taking place from September 8th – 11th at the Amsterdam Double Tree by Hilton.
Webmaster Access is one of the biggest events in the digital advertising field of the adult industry. This year the exhibition attracted about 1500 participants from more than 30 countries.
Attendees and participants could get know each other and chat in a cozy friendly atmosphere and exchange contacts on the Meet Market.
We had a lot of interesting meetings. It was a pleasure to meet with our old friends and got new ones.
Webmaster Access was very successful for our team. The next stop is DmExco 2017
Last month OrbitSoft team attended Affiliate World Europe Conference 2017 which took place in wonderful city of Berlin 14-15 June.
Affiliate World Europe Conference is a great event to meet with our current and potential clients. There was a lot of companies from all around the world, so we spent most of the time in exhibition hall speaking with other AWE
Our team also participated in the several discussion sessions with very interesting speakers from leading companies of affiliate marketing industry.
And the most important – at this conference just in few days we had a lot of personal meetings with potential clients, what gave us a priceless experience.
We spent a wonderful time in AWE, met interesting people and established new contacts. And this is only the beginning – see you at Affiliate East Summit 2017 in New York 31 July – 1 August!
The OrbitSoft team has recently embarked on a new adventure! This time, we set off for the hospitable Pyatigorsk, followed by the wondrous nature of Kislovodsk and Karachaevo-Cherkasiya, the famous springs of Essentuki. We had three days to fully enjoy these natural wonders!
Our first stop was the Kislovodsk Park, which is the second in size in all of Europe. It boasts a valley of roses, Narzannaya Gallery, an aerial tram, and amazing vistas toward the greenery of the Caucus Mountains. Six hours flew by in the blink of an eye!
We spent our second day of the trip at Medovie Vodopady waterfalls. This awe-inspiring place is located in the sunny republic of Karachaevo-Cherkasiya. Medovie waterfalls are made up of a whole cascade of waterfalls of different sizes. The height of the tallest one reaches 18 meters. We were astonished by the beauty and force of these falls.
After a lunch of local delicacies, we continued on our way. However, we were not able to leave this place just yet. We encountered beautiful horses, a large herd of lambs, and even some friendly deer! This is not something we would ever see at home!
Our final stop was the Castle of Deviousness and Love. It takes its name from a legend about a star-crossed love affair between the daughter of a local nobleman and a sheep herder.
Thus, our spring break in the Caucasian Mineral Waters came to an end. We left with tons of great experiences and a desire to come back soon!
Our company has a great old tradition to visit new cities for sharing interesting pastime and teambuilding twice a year. This time, the choice fell on Sochi! Here we are, happy and satisfied on the way to new experiences and emotions. We had a few days to see the most beautiful architectural landmarks of the city – Olympic Park, Sochi Park Raceway Circuit, Sochi ski complexes and much more. From early morning until the evening, we enjoyed good weather, clean and gentle sea, beautiful views of the city of Sochi and many attractions. We went up to Rosa peak, at a height of 2,320 meters above sea level, walked on the Red Glade, organized a bike ride in the Olympic Park and the waterfront and overcame our fears while walking along the skybridge – the longest suspension footbridge in the world: its length is 439 meters!
Our vacation came to an end, and on the last evening, we went out of the city for a picnic, enjoying the mountains, a river, and beautiful nature all around us. We played chess, grilled a variety of delicacies, and drank warm tea.
Rested, we returned home in anticipation of a new journey together. Stay tuned to hear about our next adventure!
One of the ways to view your team differently, to discover something new, unexpected and pleasant in your long-time coworkers is to take a trip somewhere where there is no place for work discussions, but only overwhelming vistas, sun-drenched streets, the noise of waterfalls, or the sound of the waves. In the early fall, we selected a place which offered all of these.
On the chosen day, we gathered, split into several cars, and made way for Black Sea. Traveling together in multiple cars has long been our preferred way of getting around for corporate trips. Each group in each car has time to share stories and bond on the way. Due to our geographical location in the south, we can reach the Black Sea coast easily and fairly painlessly. So all that’s left is just to enjoy the beauty of the Kuban outside, photograph the sunsets, count the number of shades cast by the setting sun in the clouds.
Our home away from home was an excellent hotel not far from the beach. Evening conversations by the pool were remembered by all, just as much as the daytime excursions and adventures.
We spent our time walking along the boardwalk in the evenings, sightseeing during the days, as well as working on our tans in the afternoons on the beach, surrounded by friends and crabs.
Of course we played football – there are not a single team building event without this game.
We also went to Sea port to look at the remodeled beachside, walking and riding numerous electrical bicycles that are provided by local businesses.
When back home, we felt rested – like we had at least a week’s worth of vacation – but we were gone only three days.
