LONDON, December 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
27.000 rejsende fra hele verden har stemt på New York som bedste by for natteliv
Lider man af søvnløshed, leder man efter gode nytårsløjer, eller har man bare ubændig lyst til en vild nat i byen? Så er det måske relevant at vide, at New York er byen, hvor man finder verdens bedste natteliv! Det viser en undersøgelse foretaget af hoteleksperten Hotels.com blandt 27.000 deltagere fra det meste af verden.
The Big Apple er verdens bedste by, hvis man vil have en rigtig god bytur!
27.000 rejsende fra det meste af verden har således stemt byen, der aldrig sover, ind på førstepladsen over de storbyer, som man kan have den bedste fest i. New York er dermed suverænt den bedste party-by i verden. Hernæst følger gamblerparadiset Las Vegas og urbane London.
Det viser en undersøgelse foretaget af hoteleksperten Hotels.com.
Europa er bedst til fest
Undersøgelsen viser også, at selvom både første- og andenpladsen på listen går til byer i USA, så er de seks ud af de ti bedste nattelivs-byer europæiske.
Både London, Paris, Barcelona, Berlin, Amsterdam og Madrid er således repræsenteret i top 10. Mens Los Angeles og Bangkok, som den eneste asiatiske by, indtager niende- og tiendepladsen.
"New York og Las Vegas er byer, hvor man altid er garanteret et godt rejseeventyr. Men det er forskelligheden i de europæiske byer, der gør dem så interessante og spændende for rejsende fra hele verden," mener Alison Couper fra Hotels.com og fortsætter:
"Der er derfor også mange forskellige oplevelser at hente på tværs af Europa, uanset om det er en nat på en af de berygtede klubber i Berlin, middag på en flydende restaurant eller hygge på coffee shop i Amsterdam eller et besøg på en af Paris' små, intime barer og spillesteder."
Danskerne har den bedste fest i London
Danskerne er da heller ikke nødvendigvis enige i, at New York er det bedste sted at feste. På den danske top 10 indtager New York nemlig en fjerdeplads - efter både London, Berlin og Paris.
På femtepladsen udpeger vi desuden København, der ikke figurerer på listen over bedste party-byer i den globale undersøgelse.
Top 10: Verdens bedste by til natteliv:
- New York
- Las Vegas

Danskernes top 10:

With several hundred implementations of IoT-enabled solutions in the past 12 months alone, this session will focus on experience over the art of the possible. Many can only imagine the most advanced telematics platform ever deployed, supporting millions of customers, producing tens of thousands events or GBs per trip, and hundreds of TBs per month. With the ability to support a billion sensor events per second, over 30PB of warm data for analytics, and hundreds of PBs for an data analytics archive, in his session at @ThingsExpo, Jim Kaskade, Vice President and General Manager, Big Data & Ana...

In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...

When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, will show how “product relationship management” can help you leverage your connected devices and the data they generate about customer usage and product performance to deliver extremely compelling and reliabl...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.

Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.

The Workspace-as-a-Service (WaaS) market will grow to $6.4B by 2018. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Seth Bostock, CEO of IndependenceIT, will begin by walking the audience through the evolution of Workspace as-a-Service, where it is now vs. where it going. To look beyond the desktop we must understand exactly what WaaS is, who the users are, and where it is going in the future. IT departments, ISVs and service providers must look to workflow and automation capabilities to adapt to growing demand and the rapidly changing workspace model.

Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, including what it is today, what it might ultimately be, the role of wearable tech, and technology gaps stil...

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.

Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) are increasing at an unprecedented rate. The threat landscape of today is drastically different than just a few years ago. Attacks are much more organized and sophisticated. They are harder to detect and even harder to anticipate. In the foreseeable future it's going to get a whole lot harder. Everything you know today will change. Keeping up with this changing landscape is already a daunting task. Your organization needs to use the latest tools, methods and expertise to guard against those threats. But will that be enough? In the foreseeable future attacks w...

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation.
