Sights of the NIRI Conference

Here are a few pics from the NIRI conference. This first one is a pic of a monitor set up in the hallway, which displayed graphics created by Marketwired of how many folks were tweeting at the conference during any given hour. Data visualization baby! A lot of people did tweet – sometimes at a clip of several hundred per hour. In fact, it was not uncommon to see folks holding up their phones and taking pictures of the panel or PowerPoint and then tweeting them. Never seen that before – but I joined the party and even took a pic of the audience and tweeted it while I was speaking:

Here is a cool give-away – Say-on-Pay T-shirt – from Laurel Hill:

The conference registration desk featured Randall, the Honey Badger. My wife said “we need that” but it wasn’t a give-away unfortunately:

In the exhibit hall, Wells Fargo went all out:

And the best for last, the after-party hosted by LiquidNet (invitation only – need a wristband):
