Ok, maybe not that massive, but impressive nonetheless.

With 12 stages, an awards ceremony, and over two hundred speakers, including some pretty huge names (Steve Wozniak, anyone?). This event has a feel much like that of a music festival (but with fewer drugs, presumably) and draws marketing experts and entrepreneurs from across the globe.

This year, for the first time ever, Phrasee is in attendance. We even have our own booth!

And we’ve got the infamous Miss Ballooniverse on deck, ready to meet all your balloon-related needs!

But we know that not everyone has the time to attend such things in person, and that geographical limitations can also get in the way.

Luckily, like the many conferences, gatherings, and festivals which preceded it, one way to get a great feel for the atmosphere and experience of Festival of Marketing without ever leaving the comfort of your own home is to review the tweets about it.

And that’s just what we did to provide you all with a glimpse inside this exclusive event…

The buildup:

For some, the excitement started early…

For others, only the Queen Bee herself could convey the message effectively…

But when it came right down to it, leaving home in darkness and relying on caffeine for relief was the only real answer…

Indeed, everyone was understandably excited.

And then, it began…

The event

Anyone who works a Kip gif into a tweet deserves all the credit in the world…

Between Kip and Bowie, things were off to a promising start

Some seasoned FOM veterans took a step back…

While others let the excitement spill over…

There were helpful tips for staff retention…

Some world-view challenging gender role revelations…

Balloon art aplenty…

Content-leftover turkey comparisons…

And of course a few jabs at those pesky “millennials”…

All capped off with keynote speaker “The Woz”…

Generational geniuses aside, what would an industry convention be without the swag? Everybody likes free stuff!

The free stuff!

There were crepes…

There was candy…

 There was booze on offer, for those ready to wind down…

And even free nitrogen… for some reason…

Or you could pet some guide dogs… because, who doesn’t need to pet a dog after an intense day like this?

Indeed, Festival of Marketing 2016 Day 1 was amazing. We here at the Phrasee pod look forward to some good after hours times, and, of course many more of your fantastic tweets on Day 2!
