Marketplace

We asked you to name our conference rooms and the winner is…

Marketplace spoke with AdAge writer Rupal Parekh this week about companies that are spending a lot of time choosing the perfect names of their conference rooms, names that reflect their corporate culture.

We wanted to get in on the fun, and asked you what Marketplace should name its two main meeting rooms, currently brilliantly named “The Large Conference Room” and “The Small Conference Room.”

And boy, did you weigh in — we received a ton of great suggestions, hundreds of them, in fact.

We’ll start with some close runners-up:

  • Keynes/Hayek
  • Bernanke/Greenspan
  • Bubble/Bust

Just for fun, here are some other…notable…suggestions:

  • “No words – just a picture of the front of Kai and one of the back of Kai”
  • “Robert Reich’s closet and Nancy Marshall Genzer’s dressing room”
  • “Birther/Truther”
  • “Red Pants/No Pants”
  • “Kai Roomdal”

We read ’em all, but the finalists we asked you to vote on were:

  • Wall St./Main St.
  • Bull/Bear
  • Macro/Micro
  • Dollars/Cents
  • Supply/Demand
  • The Dubin (composer of “We’re in the Money”) / the Arlen (composer of “Stormy Weather”)
  • Bacon/Sausage

And the winner is…


Thanks to Facebook fan K Emerson Beyer for the suggestion! And thanks to everyone else for participating — it was fun!

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
