Next weekend, I will be deployed to Detroit, MI to attend 2008’s PRSA International Conference titled “The Point of Connection” and will be sharing thoughts on several sessions, in addition to general overviews of the event itself, on behalf of Online Marketing Blog readers. So what am I looking forward to most about the PRSA International conference?
Visiting Detroit, of course! When most think of Detroit, they will no doubt reflect on the history of Motown, past flawed baseball greats such as Ty Cobb and Denny McClain, or “Detroit Rock City”. My nerdom leads me elsewhere, however.
For me, Detroit will always be immortalized as the city that hosted the monumental world premiere of “Night of the Demons” in Halloween of 1988. Per IMDB’s invaluable trivia feature, had this filmed opened nationwide with the numbers posted in Detroit, it would have ranked among the top grossing horror films of the decade.
