(Montreal) April 19, 2005 - Live video chat site creator www.2much.net found itself in a quandary in midst of their plans for Webmaster Access East when their annual anniversary bash was scheduled at same hour as MyVirtualCard's Webmaster Poker Tournament.
Originally to celebrate Tournament winner as well as 2much.net's 8th anniversary, party hit a brick wall when MVC's tournament site and schedule went online.
"I was in mid-organizational frenzy when Poker site went up," said 2much Media guy Greg Jones. "That's when I saw their start time."
The Poker Tournament had always been scheduled at 8pm, said MyVirtualCard's Joshua Ungar. "But Greg thought it was a day-time thing," he said.
Jones, a poker enthusiast though not a big sports fan, imagined that as a spectator event, it would be a day time event.
Eric Matis, of Adult.com, main organism behind Webmaster Access tradeshows, finally stepped in.
"Eric saved my butt," Jones said. "He found out about Saturday night opening."
"I spoke with Fred [of Braincash.com], who told me their thing was Friday, instead of Saturday night," Matis said.
"So Saturday is all ours," said Jones. "Which is really too bad in a way since we've been looking forward to doing something with MyVirtualCard for a while now. We're friends and practically neighbours, you know?"
After JoinRightNow, main force behind this edition of conference, two Montreal-based companies have applied their weight and money behind pushing this year's Webmaster Access East conference.
"What would you do, in our place, though?" said 2much president Mark Prince. "We had chance to close off show in style, in a big way, with Saturday night slot."
