At the end of February, Wireside headed to San Francisco for the annual RSA Conference with clients NTT Ltd. Security Division and NTT Research. It was wonderful to see our clients, and do some team bonding – of course, we also kept busy staffing press briefings and managing social media for NTT!
The show floor was open Monday through Thursday, and we hosted reporters from eWeek, SDxCentral, and Enterprise Times, just to name a few, while checking out the exhibitors and snapping photos and videos for social media. We got to spend a lot of time at the Moscone Center with NTT Ltd.’s Security CEO, Matt Gyde, and NTT Research CEO, Kazuhiro Gomi.
Of course, when the floor closed each day there was plenty of fun to be had around the city! We had a nice dinner with NTT Ltd. Monday night at Foreign Cinema, and we had a Wireside team dinner the following evening at The Slanted Door, a restaurant overlooking the Bay Bridge.
On Wednesday, the party really started – NTT Ltd. hosted its Partner Happy Hour, a packed room of colleagues from partner companies who were all in town for RSA. It was such a hit they had to keep the bar open for an extra hour! Then Wireside and NTT headed to the Mayhem Afterparty, hosted by BugCrowd at the DNA Lounge, to close out a long night.
We ended our week on Thursday, grabbing drinks and pizza with friends and colleagues from NTT Research. We made it safely home to Richmond – and Andrea to Spain – and are back to business as usual, but it’s safe to say that after such a successful trip, we’re looking forward to 2021!
