To continue writing about the new products and vendors we learned of at The Special Events Conference in Chicago last month- here is one that really caught our eye, Dear World! We would love to incorporate this into one of our future events.
Robert X. Fogarty’s Dear World unites people through his distinct message-on-skin portrait style. Subjects are asked to share a short message that matters to them regardless of race, religion or language. What is your love note to the world?
Robert X. Fogarty’s distinct portraits have been called a “loudspeaker for the world.”
The project began as a photographic love note to New Orleans and he recognized that his distinct portraits could take on more stories regardless of religion, race or language. He has photographed thousands including survivors of major disasters
as well as recognizable people like Susan Sarandon, Elle Macpherson, Deepak Chopra and Drew Brees.
Fogarty’s Dear World keynote and photos shoot explores the subtle and powerful connections that colleagues, clients and staff have at events and conventions across the country. The award-winning interactive event brings Fogarty to photograph attendees over one or a series of days and culminates with a participatory and emotionally stimulating keynote address.
He’s worked with organizations and universities large and small including American Express and Southwest Airlines and at Stanford, Harvard and Georgetown.
Here is one testimonial from his website:
“Bringing Robert to Southwest’s headquarters was an amazing experience that our employees loved,” says Marilee McInnis, Sr. Manager, Culture & Communication at Southwest Airlines. “His moving and emotional portraits were an exercise in not only team building and helped put to some of our employees and efforts that otherwise may have gone unnoticed.”
Another entertainment act we learned about while at The Special Event Conference 2013 is the Aqualillies! They have performers in Miami, which is perfect for us since we plan many events in Florida. Call us today to see how we can fit them into your next event.
Aqualillies is America’s hottest water ballet entertainment company, reinventing the classic art form for the new millennium. Diving off the pages of Vogue, Marie Claire, The New York Times and LA Times Magazine, the Aqualillies brand has become synonymous with classic beauty, sexy sophistication, luxury and style. In front of the camera or at live events for clients such as Glee, Justin Timberlake, The Kardashians, Turner Classic Movies, TED Conferences and American Express, Aqualillies has inspired audiences with awesome and innovative spectacles of romance, athleticism and grace.
Last week we mentioned we just got back from Chicago where we attended The Special Event Conference. We also mentioned that we were going to be posting some of our favorite new things. Well, here is our first one- Cirque Mechanics! This act was on Michael Cerbelli’s Hot List for 2013.
Check out the video HERE! It is a mobile cirque show. Very Awesome!!
Looking for something different at your next meeting?
You put on a great meeting last time, but now you have to top it. You need something unexpected, unique, fresh, not just the same old speaker, comedian, magician or band.
Take a look at The Passing Zone! They have a great interactive act and would be a good fit for just about any meeting. They can be used as a keynote speaker, corporate entertainment, or as a team building workshop.
Looking for a great corporate or wedding party band? Look no further, check out this awesome band we worked with earlier this year, The Headliners Band. They really know how to get your party going and get everyone on the dance floor! They travel Florida Statewide.
Are you looking for unique entertainment at your next event? Why not hire a DJ and Percussion Package? It’s the best of both worlds! The DJ can play any song you want and the Live Percussion will make all the music sound live, just like a band. There are three key components to make this work….A DJ that is great at beat mixing, a Percussionist that is awesome, who knows all the music, and a great sound system. We know the right people for you-Inpulse Entertainment!! They have a package that includes 3 guys (a DJ, MC and Percussionist) it really does look like a small band!
