Conference Steer by Peter Adams.
Conference badges adorn the antlers of a decorative steer head at Cloudability’s offices. The startup frequents over a dozen cloud computing conferences each year in order to meet new partners and customers.

Conferences have become a way of life for companies in high growth industries. The faster the growth the more conferences there seem to be. Startups and big companies both love a good conference. Think about it. Where else can you easily meet a whole bunch of new investors, customers, and partners over the course of a day or two?

Of course attending conferences can get old after a while but it sure as heck beats wearing a sandwich board on Sand Hill Road.

Maybe why it’s so hard to get a hotel room in Startup Land these days.
