Dubai lynx 2009 tips

Gong with the wind…this is big…it must be the Grand Prix 🙂

Tip 1: take an extra empty bag to put all the magazines, brochures and magazines that are handed out at the Dubai Lynx but leave enough space just in case you win a gong or two.

Tip 2: If you flew into Dubai to actually attend the Dubai Lynx workshops and seminars; then Novotel hotel is the place to stay; it is reasonably priced (important point in an economic meltdown specially if you are paying for your own accommodation 😉 Novotel is strategically located next to the convention center gate where the Dubai Lynx was held in 2009 and 2008.

Tip 3: Come in early to collect your badge or risk standing in a long queue, miss part of the first seminar and get a lousy seat 😦

Tip 4: This could be your last chance to smile (for the badge); as once you get in and find out that your work is not shortlisted its frowns all the way.

this is where the strategically located bars come in handy to let it all out or to celebrate 😉

Tip 5: if you did not follow tip No.1 you will end up carrying 41 Motivate titles in your hands all day long.

My favorite Motivate title is Campaign (Middle East).

Tip 6: make a quick scan of the exhibitors to see what is to your intrest then use the time when there is a boring seminar to talk to the exhibitor and you will get all the attention you could dream off as everyone else is in the seminar and the exhibitor is exited to have a conversation instead of being board out of his mind.

although the stand was designed to be attended by four people; in most cases there was no one there and in few cases there was a young girl (a promoter) who did not know much about the promoted services

Tip 7: This is a good place to rest your feet, eat a sandwich and get entertained.

Tip 8: Don not go there unless you want to snooze.

Tip 9: Sit in the front row opposite the podium; this way you can be better heard (even without a microphone) in case you want to comment. another advantage of sitting in the front row is that you would be rubbing shoulders with the Advertising Mafia Bosses and could be mistaken for  one 🙂

Tip 10: Test your camera settings on the announcer so that you are ready to shoot the lecturer.

Tip 11: if the lecturer is in this size then a zoom in shoot is not a good idea instead take a wide angle zoom out shoot and when the lecturer looks slimer he will most probably contact you for a copy of the photo 🙂

Tip 12: if you dont want to get skewed photos of the screen then move to the far end way at the back facing the screen and you would get straight photos – seat 11 is aligned with the projector.

ANUBIS was a very old god of the ancient Egyptians, universally worshipped throughout the land and became considered the gatekeeper and ruler of the underworld; the “Guardian of the veil“ he was “Lord of the Cleansing Room” and the opener of the roads of the North. “He observed the weighing of the deceased’s heart against the feather of Maat [Truth] and reported his findings to the jury of the gods.
