WES 2010 Party Buzz
 
Has anyone heard any buzz about the entertainment for this year's WES party?

Found this site for the AT&T party. Not sure if it's legit.

AT&T

I would say you found the right link. This looks just like the same type of site they used last year. I would also recommend the Executive meet if you have issues with your AT&T service. The Executive meet will allow you to meet candidly with AT&T upper management to discuss issues that you would like to see get resolved. I meet with them last year and it really made a difference in the service that we now get from AT&T.

What did you hear? I've been bugging my people to see the theme this year. Hope its better than last year. 2007 and 2008 rocked.

One down .. working on VZW, TMO .. looks like nothing but golf with Sprint.

Darth - stop beating up on Anonyomous3 ... it was a valid point ;)

Found out from a Verizon rep/organizer that will be at WES: the party this year will be the same as last year. From first hand experience, I'm gonna skip Verizon this year and pursue my Wednesday evening entertainment elsewhere. Heck, even the Verizon rep I spoke with said to go elsewhere. :)

Umm.. yeah. What makes you think that was me? lol
Of course it was, but still... you know that BES Admin is a full time position with more involved that just playing with new BBs.

Frank Castle 03-26-2010 08:20 AM

I'm hearing the same. I don't think they even had prizes last year. Pinjo and I go eat then leave. T-Mo had that cuban nights by the pool which was fun.

Totally agree once you have a good number deployed, it just becomes a full time job. My remark was the poster was implying it's needed for any Blackberry deployment and it's not. I know places where the secretary manages it all.

30 days till WES!

Me, AlanM and Wick went in, got our free drinks and food and left. AlanM had a rental car and we went down to Downtown Disney; hung out in front of House of Blues socializing. Even ran into a high ranking Verizon rep I know that was INSIDE the ATT party at House of Blues. LOL

Heck yeah... 30 days! Sucks that you're leaving Thursday though. Thursday evening is when we do our "BlackBerry Forums Fellowship and Networking" exercise away from WES activities. (ie: Disney or Universal)

VZW definitely sucked last year. Not gonna miss ATT this time around.

30 days still seems like a long ways away. See you guys then.

ATT has given out free devices the past two years.....now that they are doing electronic tickets its even better. I always take my wife and family with me and make a vacation out of it. Up until last year, ATT had a list at their booth and gave out paper tickets to the event, which means I couldn't get my wife in without at least buying her a companion pass to WES just to get to the booth and pick up a ticket. Last year they started doing electronic tickets that they send out to you via email. I submitted mine and my wife's addresses last year and we both got invites! It was nice to be able to take her along to enjoy the show after having to be away from her during the day at sessions. It also wasn't bad that they gave us both 8900's either!

Hope they get someone better that Will i am, he was terrible last year, he only did a few songs and then sat on stage playing with his laptop the rest of the night.

The AT&T party last year rocked, Kenny Loggings was great!! Of course it rocked the year before too with Hooty & The Blowfish! Can't wait to see who they have this year.

Was the free device given out to all attendees or only AT&T subscribers who attended the event? I was there and didn't get one.

Bonnarooed 03-29-2010 02:06 PM

They sent them out in the Fall after WES If I remember correctly. Mine came to the house.

bigwillokc 03-29-2010 09:55 PM

yes in 2008 they handed them out at the door when we left. last year they apparently didn't have the 8900 ready yet, but i received two of them at the house about 2 months after WES.

nitroeh 03-30-2010 01:18 PM

Bummer...never got mines. Hopefully this year.

BTW, Train will be performing at the AT&T Event this year.

BBHorrigan 03-30-2010 02:25 PM

who the hell is Train?
