The Overuse of Wow

Wow. Wow. Wow.

That’s how I would summarize Marriott Connect 18. Really, just an incredible event. The convention, the food was amazing, the small touches in the rooms at night, the music & the after party, all a total blast! I already shared the Pattison Lounge with you, but last night was the cherry on top of a ten layer cake.

After a long day on the convention floor, I went back to my room to relax before what was predicted to be a long night. I was pleasantly surprised to have a small bottle of red, some cheese & bread as well as some snacks waiting for me. The perfect pick me up while waiting to head out.

We were lucky enough to be cursed by my wife, a huge Fitz & The Tantrums fan. They rocked it, as usual. Even though I have seen them preform before, opening for One Republic, I wasn’t this close to them. Francisco & I both really enjoyed the show! Then off to the afterparty!

I played a little pretend blackjack (Marriott gave us five hundred fictional dollars) and then I went and found duelling pianos. Just one of my favourite things in the world. Bohemian Rhapsody was nothing for these two! A fabulous two days from start to finish with no aspect over looked. Really a spectacular feat given the number of attendees.

I’m flying back to the cold as I write this, but Marriott thank you for a wonderful couple of days. I cannot wait to see what you come up with for Connect 2020!
