Drupalcon was held at the Crown Plaza in Coogee last week, and Anchor was a silver sponsor. It was a great opportunity for us to mix with members of the open source Drupal community to have a chat, and for us to learn more about it’s users. There were lots of interesting sessions taking place at this event, including a Keynote presentation by Senator Kate Lundy. Other exciting events included the Drupal girls dinner, beach cricket and of course – lots of freebies and prizes! Congratulations to our lucky winner John Kennedy, Regional Director at Commerce Guys. John has won a new Nexus 7 tablet just for visiting our booth! Remember to check out the Sydney Drupal Users Group for future events – we hope to see you there.
We’re back from last week’s Online Retailer expo and happy to report that it was a resounding success. There were heaps of great presentations, talks, and we managed to stickybeak on a couple of cool seminar sessions as well. We also have a winner for our giveaway: Nigel Ewart from WeAreDigital – there’s a brand new iPad™ headed your way, congratulations! We’d like to thank everyone that visited the booth to say “Hi”, old and new customers alike, it was lovely to catch up with you and wish you success in your online endeavours and look forward to coming back next year.
As mentioned in our previous post, Anchor have spent this week at the Online Retailer Expo . While we were too busy talking to attendees to catch any of the seminars, we had a smashing time! The width and breadth of online initiatives that we saw at the event (at other booths and through conversation) promises a bright future for Australian consumers. Personally we’ll be happy to get our online purchases come from a local address rather than having to deal with customs, however I digress. While at the event Anchor gave away not one, but two iPad-2s!! The allure of surfing net and media from the comfort of your couch (or really, anywhere, be it bus or bed) was great as we saw just about everyone who passed stop to drop…
