MagHub is back from the Big Easy! New Orleans had it all, from Voodoo shops to Bourbon Street parades, it’s clear that CRMA 2018 did not disappoint. With hundreds of attendees from city regional publishers of all shapes and sizes across the nation, there was something for everyone. Here are a few of the things that struck out to us as we attended the event.
Whether it was hanging out with other vendors or discussing the many topics and interests of some of the best publishers in the world, there was no shortage of stories being shared. Remarkable facts about the magazine industry, heartwarming stories of extraordinary individuals, and general chit-chat about how business was going filled the halls of the Marriott.
When we heard CRMA was in New Orleans, there were quite a few volunteers that offered to attend and represent MagHub. Fortunately, Account Executive, Jenny Oister, and myself, Marketing Director, Zach Gilbert, were able to attend on behalf of MagHub. Our stomachs were also grateful that we could attend. From morning beignets at Café Beignet, to elaborate southern cooking spreads provided by our gracious hosts at CRMA. We tried it all, and nothing was short of extraordinary.
There are few conferences that could compare with the events at CRMA 2018. We did it all. From police escorted Bourbon Street parades, to after parties with performers of all shapes and sizes. There aren’t many times that you can say you marched down the French Quarter in New Orleans, with a marching band, beads in hand, and a group of close colleagues, clients, and friends marching alongside.
Overall, we were able to meet with a large group of intelligent, interesting individuals who make up a strong portion of MagHub users, at CRMA 2018. It’ll be hard to beat the southern hospitality of New Orleans for next year’s conference; however, I’m sure that if anyone can do it, it’s CRMA.
