IGLCC Summit in London, Sept 19-20, 2008
We had great networking opportunities and workshops focused on GLBT marketing as well as a detailed explanation about their upcoming corporate ratings index they're debuting this year.
Side events including a very pleasant reception at the Novotel hotel sponsored by VisitLondon and Accor Hotels, as well as a closing cocktail mixer at Simmons and Simmons law firm in London.
Whilst I was there in London (my English accent is now developing), I did arrive early so that I'd be wide awake during the conference and thus enjoyed London a bit on my own before the conference began. I attended the store relaunch of ROB London, a very cool and hip leather shop in Soho, as well as had a chance to really enjoy both Soho as well as some of the newer gay venues south of the Thames in Southwark and Vauxhall, including XXL, Bar Code and Fire, just to name a few. It's also really enjoyable to simply take in the social life of London, gay and straight, as everyone descends on the pubs after work and the crowd spills out onto the streets, beers in hand, just enjoying the Fall weather.
