We couldn’t have written a better headline for Fortune’s wrap-up piece on the Internet Week New York 2009.
PKPR once again handled publicity for the weeklong festival celebrating New York’s Internet industry. An estimated 15,000 people, including such industry movers and shakers as Al Gore, Barry Diller, Rupert Murdoch, Martha Stewart, and Twitter co-founders Jack Dorsey and Biz Stone, attended over 110 conferences, panels, exhibits, screenings, and networking events hosted by the likes of YouTube, Microsoft, Digg, Time Warner, Mediabistro, Digitas, and College Humor. Highlights ranged from NY Tech Meetup Showcase to the first-ever Webutant Ball.
More than 100 reporters and bloggers were credentialed to cover Internet Week. Coverage included Wall Street Journal, CNN.com, New York Post, New York Observer, All Things D, Crain’s New York Business, CNET, and Huffington Post.
