Before I go into this blog post, I want to say that I have been incredibly lazy with this blog thus far. For that, I apologize. We have been pretty slammed with various projects and random things going on. For a while I had completely forgotten about it. But, I decided to make a new years resolution a month late to actually put the time into this that it deserves. So, I want all of you who read this to hold me accountable :-). I just usually put more of my mental real estate towards getting client projects done and keeping them satisfied, sometimes I slack on the social media side of things. BUT NO LONGER!
Last weekend, NewSpeak Media had the wonderful pleasure of running a booth at The Great Bridal Expo of Dallas. It really was a great day. We got to meet a lot of great people and prospective clients, which was really useful, but we also got a better feel for the industry. It was our first time at one of those things. Previously, we had been working in the background taking gigs from word of mouth (as far as weddings go). But we decided that this year we would work more on the wedding side of things. Don't get me wrong, music videos are fun, but we've had a few unpleasant encounters when it comes to payment. Not to mention, weddings yield a much more rewarding and enjoyable experience most times. We love the prospect of providing couples with the ability to rewatch and relive the most important day of their lives. Anywho, enough of the mushy stuff. Haha.
This is Todd right after we finished setting up the booth
He's texting on his droid. If you don't know what that is,
then ask him about it... he'll be more than willing to talk
for way too long about it.
Set up went sooo fast. We got there wayy to early. I'm pretty sure we were the first booth to completely set up. I think Todd had misread the itenerary a bit, because from where the rest of us were sitting, there was definitely the potential for at-least another hour of sleep.

For this being our first booth, we were really proud of the design. We thought it had a very classy and minimalist yet homey kind of look. Professional, but not intimidating.
Here's the whole crew. From left to right it's Lauren,
Todd, Caleb, then Austin.
We decided on four people to run the booth. Which admittedly was probably too much. But we won't lie, it was nice to be able to rotate and send someone out to get lunch when we all got hungry. So it definitely worked out.
This was around when people started coming in. Very
pleased with the attendance at the event.
It was really cool, the company next to us didn't show. So we got to steal half of their booth. They also paid for power, so we were able to plug in one of our big lights to brighten up our booth a bit. So that was just a nice bit of luck.
All in all, it was a very good day. We hope to do many of these in the future. Hopefully we'll see some of you there!
