For 2016, “World,” as it’s come to be known, is in it’s ninth iteration in just five years. It’s become a staple for the wedding industry, as Florists, Planners, Catering Venues, Photographers, Entertainment companies, and all wedding professionals seek to learn, share, and become even more valuable to their clients.
Almost 2000 attendees participated over 3 days in Washington, DC, as they learned from CEOs, Brand Managers, athletes, and even outright celebrities! And providing the musical cues, segues, and even some live introductions, was SCE Event Group and Jason Jani. We were excited to lend our production value and perspective to this exceptional industry conference, as we contributed not only in the spotlight but behind the scenes.
The setup, located right next to the main stage, showcased our DJ Decor. White lacquer DJ furniture made for a gorgeous showpiece and set expectations as soon as attendees walked into the hall. The variety of music was a huge hit, providing a backdrop for intros, outros, and breaks, spanning decades and genres that appealed to everyone at some point!
Jason was assisted by SCE Event Host Tony Tee Neto, who helped coordinate and manage the backstage scene including timing cues and talent coordination. Images and visuals were captured by Event Host Jeff Scott Gould, assisted by Event Host Manny Caraballo.
The 3-day learning event wasn’t all business, though. On Tuesday, Jason headlined at Pose Rooftop Lounge playing an open format like he loves, allowing attendees, show producers, and fans to really let loose! It was a great way to blow off a little steam, take in some great music, and … well, network over drinks, of course!
One of the highlights came on Day 2, when Wedding Wire’s Chief Marketing Officer, Sonny Ganguly, asked the SCE team to participate in his talk on “The Evolving Tech Landscape.” As he spoke about Virtual Reality and its relevance to our industry (yeah!), we used one of our new “360-degree cameras” to capture the entire room in one scene. It’s so neat to see, that you should watch for yourself! (
We had an amazing time bringing our flare to this awesome conference. Getting the nod from inside the industry repeatedly is a huge compliment and a testament to what we strive for— push harder, do more, expect more.
