Search Insider Summit Day .05 Photos

Welcome to Search Insider Summit

You know those stories you hear once in a while about people who “blog in the nude”? Well, that will never be me but I am in a plush robe courtesy of Stein Eriksen Lodge, the place where Mediapost’s Search Insider Summit is being held the rest of this week and on Saturday. I just returned from the opening reception where hours’dourves and drinks were served along with smart conversation.

Familiar faces included Aaron Goldman from Resolution Media, Gord Hotchkiss from Enquiro, David Berkowitz from 360i, Natala Menezes from Microsoft and Paul Bruemmer from Red Door Interactive. What’s nice about SIS events is that I DON’T know that many people yet and get to meet really interesting people from interesting companies like Carel Hearon from eLuxury, Carrie Coffee from Medio, Kendall Fargo from Intuit and John Hart from a particularly interesting technology company out of New Zealand called vortexDNA.

David Berkowitz & Gord Hotchkiss – Search Insider Summit Utah

A whirlwind conference schedule winds up this year with Mediapost’s Search Insider Summit being held in Park City Utah at the Stein Eriksen Lodge Dec 12-15, 2007.  As part of our media sponsorship duties, I caught up with conference chair, David Berkowitz from 360i and the host/MC, Gord Hotchkiss of Enquiro for a quick interview:

Please tell us a little about yourself – a mini bio if you will.

David: I’m Director of Emerging Media and Client Strategy with 360i, the search-focused digital agency. I’ve been writing a weekly Search Insider column for MediaPost since it launched in mid-2004. For fun, I have my own blog at, and I do a fair amount of speaking at industry events. It’s a great gig, especially with the clients I get to work with.
