As a leader in independent mobile advertising, Millennial Media exhibits at several trade shows annually. To showcase their leadership position, Millennial took their Nomadic Instand® to the Hyatt Regency where they were the gold event sponsor of the fifth annual Baltimore AdWeek Marketing Conference. I had the good fortune to meet Suzanne Shaw, Director of Marketing and Business Development, welcoming the advertising community at the entrance to the two-day marketing event which is produced by the American Advertising Federation.
If you like desserts (an honestly who doesn’t?), then maybe you saw Nomadic at the NY Business Expo at the Javits Center. It’s a one day business marketing event for small and mid-sized companies. The U.S. Favorite Dessert Challenge was there to raise funds for nonprofit organizations. Visitors purchased tickets to taste desserts in five different categories including cold, sweet, savory, chocolate and specialty. Ticket sale proceeds went to benefit Pegasus Therapeutic Riding. They provide horseback riding for more than 300 students from people with special needs, disadvantaged youth, and abuse survivors to military veterans.
As a sponsor of the NYC Dessert Challenge, Nomadic provided this FabriMural backwall display and Doug Turpin, Executive Director, served as a judge. “This was a great opportunity for us to participate and support our clients who were exhibiting at the NY Business Expo too”, said Doug Turpin.
It’s a tough job to taste 14 desserts and vote for a favorite in each category. Judges then voted to select one final winner as the Favorite Dessert of NYC. Somebody has to do it and lucky for us Doug was up to the task.
And the winner is!.....Lloyd’s Carrot Cake of the Bronx, NY.
