IMEX America is the largest trade show in the events, meetings, and incentive travel industry in the US. It’s an epic event, with suppliers and buyers coming together in Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas for 4 days of education, networking, and so much more. And Team Gather Voices is excited to connect with our clients, strategic partners, and colleagues at this year’s show!
With authentic, short-form video totally dominating in today’s landscape, it’s no surprise that our community-driven video technology and Video Kiosk hardware are being used by several groups at this year’s event, including Meeting Professionals International (MPI), Hard Rock International, and SongDivision, just to name a few.
To get inspiration for using video to maximize engagement during your next event and all year long, check out these use cases:
Gather Voices is proud to be MPI’s video technology partner for the past year. From membership testimonials to continuing education stories to live events and more, MPI is at the leading edge of authentic, member-driven video content.
One of the main initiatives they have been co-creating content with their members for is their 50th Anniversary Celebration (check out those video stories here). And this year at IMEX America, they’ll be co-creating more stories for their anniversary celebration using the Gather Voices Video Kiosk. Stop by and record your story story at Booth F707.
Listen as Drew Holmgreen, Chief Brand Officer at MPI, shares his experience with Gather Voices:
Hard Rock International is living their commitment to their values by hosting the #PickyourPassion program at their booth (F1143) at IMEX America. Attendees who stop by will have the opportunity to drop a guitar pick to show their support for the cause of their choice (learn more about the eligible causes in this post). The cause with the most votes will receive a $5,000 donation from Hard Rock.
Gather Voices is honored to have been selected by Hard Rock to co-create video stories with people who participate in the Pick Your Passion campaign. Attendees who vote for a cause will have the opportunity to record a video story about why they chose to support the organization they did and encourage others to do the same.
SongDivision is returning to IMEX America with the fan-favorite: InstaHits® sessions. In just 3 minutes, the world-class songwriters from SongDivision will create a personalized song for each participating attendee in just 3 minutes. It’s all happening at the Hard Rock International Booth (F1143)!
And this year, using the Gather Voices Video Kiosk, the personalized songs will be recorded on video. Each person who had a song recorded for them will be able to relive the experience of hearing their personalized song and share the experience with their family, friends, and network on social media and more.
Several members of the Gather Voices team will be on-site learning and networking along with you at IMEX America, and we’d love to connect with you. Check out the gallery below to learn more about the members who are attending and get in touch with us.
