Perhaps it’s because of the economy, but 2009 just wasn’t the year for huge media events.
Starting last Christmas, when many publishers started forgoing their annual Christmas parties as a way to save money, the theme of the big events this year seemed to be frugality. Still, despite the lack of open bars, there were plenty of events that got the media types out mingling and excited, if only for a night (or a day in the case of the conferences we seem to love so much).
So we ask you, FishbowlNY readers, what was the biggest media blowout of the year? Feel free to add your own suggestions to our list. And, just like our poll about magazine and newspaper closures earlier this week, we’ll be taking your answers into consideration next week, when we feature some year-end lists picked by the FishbowlNY editors.
