Well, I’m finally in Atlanta for the 2011 Real Studio Summit. It seems like it’s been a long time in the making. No, in reality, it HAS taken us a long time to get this thing going. After an abortive attempt at getting it for last fall it fell through to this spring.
I think we’ve also done an excellent job at keeping the costs down. We’re staying at Holiday Inn just outside of the Atlanta airport. It’s nice and relatively new and there are a ton of new hotels in the area. But there are few restaurants so it’s not a place to go roaming about on foot.
The family and I went down to Olympic Park and visited the World of Coca Cola and ate at a local bistro just a block away. Olympic Park is nice and there are quite a few hotels there – including a Holiday Inn.
So, I think if I have any say in future RB conferences I’ll try to pick a more tourist friendly location. Of course, that means it’ll probably be more expensive.
For those of you on Twitter, you can follow the events going on at that conference by searching for the tag #Real2011.
