MDM Entertainment Sponsors Chicago Biz Bash 2011
MDM Entertainment was a proud sponsor of the 2011 Chicago Biz Bash for event planners held this past Thursday at the Merchandise Mart. We got the chance to mingle with corporate and private event planners from all over Chicago and the Midwest at our booth.
The expo was a great chance to make some new friends (as well as seeing some old friends) and connect with other wedding and special event vendors.
Our own DJ David O spun the tunes on the side stage throughout the event. He started the day with some very cool house/lounge music and then as the day went on took everyone on a musical journey. I would have to say I really enjoyed all the tunes but the 80’s dance music set was probably my favorite.
Our booth was directly across from Michael Angelos Events out of South Bend Indiana who had an extremely cool 3D projection system set up that projected video and laser images onto a wall of water vapor. We spent all day poking each other going “Check that out!” every time they projected an image that we hadn’t seen yet.
We were able to sneak out of the booth to check out the show floor and see some great products and services and, of course, sample some food. Until Thursday I had never heard of Smoque BBQ but got the chance to sample their pulled pork sandwich and it was out of this world. I am trying to plan a trip there very soon! I have family in Texas so I do know my BBQ and this stuff was incredible. I am sure a quick trip to Smoque will tide me over whenever I get a craving for BBQ in between Texas trips.
As part of our booth we also brought out Photo Booth Express’ new Facebook photo booth which got a ton of rave reviews from the event planners in attendance.
After the 2011 award winners were announced everyone headed down to the South Branch Tavern to unwind and socialize after a long day on the show floor. This was my first time at South Branch and I was thoroughly impressed with the venue. The staff and service were outstanding and we had a fantastic time.
Thanks to everyone at Biz Bash and all of the sponsors, vendors and event planners for a great day or networking and education.
