Day 1 [Feb 17], kick started the New York Social Media week with a VIP Opening Celebration at the Highline Stages in New York. This place is going to be the venue for most of the sessions that is going to be happening over the next one week. I must say it was one crazy night. The Nokia Now Studio is an awesome setup. The Nokia Phone Booth and the Nokia Now Studio are both great places that is going to be open all throughout the week. You can explore the latest Nokia products and get a first hand experience in using them. Also there are experts and artist in this #nowstudio to teach you create some awesome vine videos and other kinds of media.
DJ Mick pepped up the night with his awesome music and must I say, we had awesome fun.
Apart from the Nokia Now Studio, there were a couple of booths that impressed me. The poppin booth was an impressive showcase. Poppin is a office supply company and their design is simply amazing. I love the choice of colors and their moto is #workhappy. They believe that vibrant colors can make your work place a happy place to be. I sure would want to try it out and see it makes me happy at work. #workhappy
Then the Yelp booth. Yelp doesn’t need any introduction. I wish yelp was in India. But then we have many services in India as well. like Yelp, to help us find the best place to dine, wine or vine 😉 Great product and happy to see their booth at the Social Media week, here in New York.
