CFC 2013: Record “Netwalkers” in San Francisco

Ilise Benun on your online marketing planI just landed in New Jersey after a very full week in San Francisco for HOW Design Live and especially CFC #6.

It was our best yet with 600 people attending CFC (that’s 30% growth over last year and 20% more than our goal)!

Lots of attendees have been tweeting (search #HOWLive and #CFConf) their impressions and learnings. And I’ll be posting some of the highlights.

But for today, while I unpack and go through a week’s worth of email, let me highlight my favorite part of the entire event: 6 AM Netwalking — it woke us up and, as Dyana Valentine said, was softer and squishier networking (which is a good thing!). Plus, we got to do a bit of sightseeing on foot!Netwalking SF embarcadero

We had record numbers walking this year:

  • Day 1: 32 awesome netwalkers.
  • Day 2: 28 awesome netwalkers.
  • Day 3: about 16 came out (after a night of partying)
