Curating those highly-coveted and picture-perfect events are what we are in the business of doing. Social media can help you take your event to the next level – for your customers and attendees alike.

Posted by D'Anna Hurley on Jan 11, 2019 10:20:00 AM

Full disclosure: I’m an eager (and slightly tense) bride-to-be, so this post is mildly self-serving and inspired by my personal life. My lunch hours are spent researching ideas that will help give our guests an #eventexperience worthy of their time and money to travel and celebrate with us. Through countless hours thinking about my guests and ways in which to make them feel welcome and show them an amazing time, I realized the same thought and detail can (and should) be applied to a B-to-B event. After all, we all want to have memorable and happy experiences whether it’s breaking it down on a wedding dance floor or socializing with like-minded #professionals.

Rather than spend these last few days of work analyzing my football square picks or planning my party menu (okay, I will share just one recipe I’m making – and yes, it has bacon), I am trying to channel my enthusiasm into something well, productive.  

Aside from football fans seeking good food and Texas-sized fun, many #eventprofs and #tradeshowprofs are in Houston to entertain the masses with events and experiences like the NFL Experience Driven by Genesis at the George R.
