Ein letzter Paukenschlag vor dem Ende der Welt

GENF, December 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

27'000 Reisende aus aller Welt wählten New York zur besten Nightlife-City

Am 21. Dezember geht gemäss Maya Kalender die Welt unter. Wo also sollte man seine letzten Stunden auf Erden verbringen? Zuhause mit Freunden ist sicher eine Möglichkeit. Aber warum nicht auch mit einem letzten grossen Paukenschlag bei einer grandiosen Party in New York?

Der Hotel-Experte Hotels.com hat kürzlich in einer Studie herausgefunden, dass New York die beliebteste Stadt für ein unübertreffliches Nachtleben ist. 27'000 Reisende aus aller Welt wurden befragt und wählten den Big Apple zur weltbesten Stadt in Sachen Nightlife Entertainment. Das Casino-Paradies Las Vegas ist der Weltenbummler zweite Wahl, während London auf Platz drei folgt.

Obwohl die Gold- und Silbermedaillen an die USA gehen, zeigt die Studie auch, dass sechs der Top Ten Nightlife-Städte in Europa liegen. Paris, Barcelona, Berlin, Amsterdam und Madrid schafften es ebenfalls in die weltweite Lieblingsliste. Bangkok gelang dies als einziger asiatischer Stadt.

"New York und Las Vegas bieten immer ein atemberaubendes Reise-Abenteuer. Aber es ist die Vielfalt der europäischen Städte, die sie so faszinierend für Reisende aus aller Welt machen," sagt Alison Couper von Hotels.com. "Auf dem Kontinent kann man so vielseitige Erfahrungen machen. Sei es eine Ausgehnacht in den berühmt-berüchtigten Clubs von Berlin, in Amsterdam mit seinen schwimmenden Restaurants und der Coffee-Shop-Kultur oder in Paris, mit seinen kleinen, vertrauten Bars und Musikkneipen."

Die Mehrheit der Schweizer Umfrageteilnehmer wählte das Zürcher Nachtleben an zweiter Stelle hinter New York. Gefolgt von Paris, London und Berlin. Aber wenn man sich die Zahlen genauer ansieht, zeigt sich, dass die Westschweiz immer noch das Pariser Nachtleben vorzieht!

Na dann mal los auf die Party des Lebens!

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts.

What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

This is driving the need for robust wireless coexistence for multiple radios to ensure throughput performance and th...
Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud?

How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...
