What could be better than 200 people gathering to share excitement and knowledge about video marketing? 300 people! For this year’s WistiaFest, 300 people made their way to Cambridge, MA to learn, relate, teach, and… well, dance.
Among us, there were drone experts, masters of storytelling, documentary filmmakers, ex-ballerinas, and magicians, just to name a few. The energy and talent that the attendees brought was inspiring, and we have caught ourselves skimming through the #wistiafest hashtag, reminiscing about the great vibes and those oysters.
As attendees made their way to Cambridge, the excitement began to build.
The first night at Wistia HQ was magical. Seriously though, there was an impromptu magic show.
On Tuesday, we woke up bright and early to hear talks and attend workshops. We also survived the elements to get our lunches!
That evening, the rain cleared, and some of us went to eat hot dogs (at Fenway), while others took a cruise on the Charles River.
Wednesday morning, we all made it back to the Royal Sonesta for another day packed with video marketing insight.
On our last night together, we laughed, we posed with Lenny, we played with a drone, and we danced like no one was watching (or shooting video).
We’ve already seen some great recap videos, slides, and blog posts that have made us smile.
First, a slo-mo video recap from Kevin Knecht:
Second, a comprehensive (and beautifully designed) reference guide from Natalie Fee: blog post from AWeber that includes some great takeaways from the 'Fest.
But seriously, thank you.
We can’t thank you all enough for making WistiaFest such a fantastic success. We loved meeting all of you, and we hope you'll stay in touch... and come back next year!
