Here are a great number of predictions for 2017 and beyond, from a variety of sources covering diverse topics, but predominantly focused in my area of interest: digital marketing and advertising.
What are the 2016 predictions in where advertising is concerned? These 2016 predictions aren’t only for online predictions, but for offline media as well!
I am now a full time independent consultant available to help or accompany media organisations, advertising agencies and advertisers / companies in general on a variety of digital communications fields.
I visited Vancouver 3 three times in the springs of 1995, 2002 and 2009. The first time was with my father who was traveling on business and brought me along as a graduation present. That trip took me also to Seattle, however, at that time, there were no Hard Rock Cafes in either cities. The one in Vancouver opened a few weeks after my visit, on June 6, 1995. The one in Seattle opened in 2011.
I haven’t yet visited Edmonton, so I haven’t personally been to the Hard Rock Cafe there, while it was open. My father did visit it although I could not tell you when. The Hard Rock Cafe Edmonton opened on July 7th 1994 and was closed in June of 2000 along with those in Calgary, Banff, Whistler and Vancouver.
This is another location I have not visited personally, however I did visit Banff for a conference in May of 2001 – I highly recommend visiting the view, from anywhere in the city or area, is simply breathtaking. The Hard Rock Cafe Banff closed in June 2000, so I missed it by a year. It closed at the same time as other Canadian locations including Calgary, Edmonton, Whistler and Vancouver. But, as luck would have it, my dad who traveled a lot for business back then did visit it while it was open and got me a t-shirt. The Hard Rock Café Banff originally opened on October 22, 1995.
This 15th virtual trip covers my January-February Foursquare badge hunting activities. There are a few new badges here and these but many level-ups to expertise badges. The new ones include Audi Winter Ride and AT&T College Football. This badge hunting expedition took me to New Orleans, in Colorado and in New York state.
