And Here’s To You, Adrian!
Gail Chiasson, North American Editor
Since our esteemed chief Adrian wasn’t able to join us in Montreal this week as planned, he was at least toasted roundly at this dinner at the famed Greek restaurant Milos on Tuesday night.
The DailyDOOH team of Andrew Neale and Gail Chiasson, North American editor, were guests of François de Gaspé Beaubien, chairman of Zoom Media and his wife Isabelle, along with the Ayuda Media Systems‘ team of Andreas Soupliotis, president and CEO; Madalyn Roker, director, EMEA, from London; Pierre-Yves Troël, chief software architect; and Joe Cotugno, vice-president client services.
Neale, doing research on only his second trip to Canada, is going to think that Montrealers think only of food. After Sunday dinner at Chiasson’s home, there’s been lunch with Rich Langdale, interim CEO, DOmedia, from Columbus, Ohio, (French food at Verses); dinner with Peter Maag, executive vice-president business development, Haivision, Ville St-Laurent, Quebec, and Lou Giacalone, New York, and Raffi Vartian, Chicago, both of CoolSign (Italian at da Emma’s); and more.
With several more days of research in Montreal, we may see Neale sporting an extra 10 lbs. on his trip back to London, and we don’t mean in his suitcase!
