We’re headed to the The Special Event (TSE) Conference again, and this year it’s happening in New Orleans! Produced by Penton Publishing and Special Events, this not to miss events industry conference runs January 30 through February 1 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.

This year TSE will bring over 5,000 attendees together at the event industry’s largest conference. Event professionals and event companies will come together to network, attend educational sessions, browse service and product displays in the exhibit hall, and experience premier entertainment from the industry that definitely knows how to put on a show!

What’s special about this year, you ask? EventCurious’ very own Kelly Treadway will be speaking at two educational sessions:

On Tuesday, January 30th at 11:30 am Kelly will be giving an educational session titled CONTENT IS KING: Developing Content & A Style Guide That’s True To Your Event Company. This session will lead attendees through the pros and cons of four different content styles, giving them the tools and success stories they need to choose the style and content ideas that will work best for their unique needs. Event pros wishing to attend session SM05 will find it in Room #209.

For the second educational session, Kelly will be a panel speaker in the session Marketing All-Stars 2018: What’s Up Next – Social Media and Event Tech Survival on Wednesday, January 31st at 2:45 pm.

We’re super excited to have client, Innovative Entertainment, not only producing the opening event but also providing the event’s keynote speaker and entertainment. Greg Schwem will deliver the opening keynote sharing with attendees hilarious and insightful tips for work and life balance. If that’s not enough, this session will also thrill the audience with an acrobatic dance performance by ECLIPSE! We can’t wait to see what Innovative Entertainment’s Nicole Bernardi and Brad Wilson have up their sleeves for entertaining and wow’ing people in their seats!

On the 2018 tradeshow floor there will be over 1,000 products and services to learn about or experience. We’re proud to have two clients exhibiting this year: Amusement Masters at Booth 1501 and Innovative Entertainment at Booth 1619. Based on what we know about each of their booths, attendees will NOT want to miss stopping by to say ‘hello’ and have some fun!

Last but not least, a showcase event we’re looking forward to attending again is Michael Cerbelli’s Hot List on Thursday, February 1st at 8:00 am. Quickly becoming a staple at this annual conference, Michael’s fast-paced presentation showcases the hottest trends in products and entertainment services in the events industry. This showcase event is a blast to attend year after year, as it highlights items and ideas that are getting everyone talking.

We’re ready to get this conference started…make some great connections and some lasting memories at TSE. Click to let Kelly know if she’ll be seeing you in NOLA!
