Nearly 50 people attended the speed dating. On the sell side, big names were there like axel springer, clipkit, der Spiegel, seven one media, On the buy side, we got a fantastic crowd, Affiperf, AOD, Group M, Mindshare, Xaxis… And over 60 people came to the networking session with big digital players joining us then to the likes of DataXu, BrightRoll, Spree7, Mediamath, Google… Hagai Sadot, Head of Video Advertisers at Evania, present at the Hamburg session, just summed up perfectly the objective of the event: “bringing all the big names into one room and letting us talk to all of them in 3 hours and really discussing business opportunities.” Jochen Witte, COO at Stailamedia cannot agree more, as this time spent is quite fruitful, with business opportunities at the end of the day: “ I am pretty happy because I made 5 deals!”
The event signage got so popular that Evania and OMG begged us to take back to their office. Some high level singing performance took place, with StickyADS.tv Country Manager for Germany, Marco Dohmen, doing a great cover of Tom Jones interpretation of “It’s not unusual”. It was so excellent, we all thought Tom Jones was there with us ! Try it at home, lyrics and music can be found here. Oh! And one thing we learned is that apparently in Germany 3:30PM is carrot time! Anyone?
