Make attended The Last HOPE in NYC this past weekend. I really should call it the most recent HOPE, since the name is a bit deceiving. The Next HOPE is already planned for 2010 and it should be just as interesting as the The Last HOPE. I managed to take a few pictures, but most of my time was spent talking with people at our booth. It was a great event, and I look forward to the next one.

    There’s a next last HOPE? Or that too much to hope for?

    It sounds like a great event, I’m sorry I couldn’t make it.

      Time will tell. Lets just HOPE….(sorry for that!)

      FYI – Yes, it was a great event. If there is another one, it is well worth a trip to NYC.

    How was the Club-Mate? As a Jolt fan I was sorry to hear it wouldn’t be the featured bev…

      Club-Mate was actually really good. However, I did limit my intake to (2) Mate’s a day.

    The event was awesome. I am definitely going back in 2010.

    They should have called it “A New HOPE” ;)
