You Should Probably Make an Appearance

The latest AdDrinx event has been announced for Vancouver! We’re holding it on the (G0d willing) sunny patio of the Art Gallery.

Some appetizers will be provided courtesy of AOL, and there will be a few door prizes. But mostly this is a great event to come hang out on a sunny patio with your friends, co-workers, and other industry folks. Super casual.

Click on the image below and RSVP to the event so they know how much food to order!

You Should Probably Make an Appearance

Anyone else know that the Lotus Awards are taking place tomorrow night? I hardly heard anything about it this year – at least until one of my reps asked if I wanted to attend. I haven’t been since they held the awards at the Commodore… that was disastrous.

Want more information? Check out their website – and buy a ticket. If you decide to go, come say “hi” – I’ll probably be in the vicinity of the bar.

Vancouver Ad Event: PARANORMAL AD-TIVITY

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been planning my Halloween costume since November 1, 2012. I’ve narrowed it down to three ideas. The not-so-big reveal will happen at the first-ever Halloween event for the Vancouver media, marketing, and advertising community – PARANORMAL AD-TIVITY. This even is being put on by both NABs and AdDrinx, and is going to take place on October 31, 2013. That’s a Thursday, which is perfect, right?

There will be drinks (duh), dancing, and prizes for best costume. Tickets and venue info will be coming soon, but in the meantime, join the Facebook event by clicking on the poster below and SAVE THE DATE!

It’s going to be big.
It’s going to be unforgettable.
And you can bet things are going to get wicked.

Paranormal Ad-tivity

You Should Probably Make An Appearance: Merging Media Conference

MM_Final-Logo_W-Conf_RGB
I just signed up to attend the Merging Media 2013 Special Global Edition Conference – and you should too. This conference will be showcasing the best and brightest cross-media innovation from all over the world, happening Nov 6-7, 2013 on Granville Island.

So what is cross-media?

Cross media or transmedia is the technique of telling a single story or story experience across multiple platforms and formats using current digital technologies.

From a production standpoint, it involves creating content that engages audiences using various techniques to permeate their daily lives. In order to achieve this engagement, a transmedia production will develop stories across multiple forms of media in order to deliver unique pieces of content in each channel. Importantly, these pieces of content are not only linked together (overtly or subtly), but are in narrative synchronization with each other.

Huh?

Exactly. This is why you need to attend Merging Media.

Join vibrant conversations on the latest transmedia trends, business intelligence and creative strategies that are shaping the industry worldwide. The Keynote is Kathy Franklin, the President and Franchise Development for Avatar, James Cameron’s Lightstorm Entertainment. And speakers include Lara Hoefs (The Twilight Saga Brand Manager) and Sara Moscowitz, Senior Vice President, Strategic Marketing, Syfy, to name a few. Check the full listing here.

Whether you are a Marketing Executive suit or a social media maven, come learn, be inspired, and open the door to new opportunities.
