Atlantic City DJ Expo 2012

Posted on August 20, 2012 in All Posts

Continuing Education in Pursuit of Excellence

Rock The House Entertainment attends a variety of conferences and events all over the country each year. One of the most important trips is to the DJ Expo put on by DJ Times. This year the event was in Atlantic City and Matt, Shawn, and Travis had the opportunity to attend this conference and trade show with some of the best in the entertainment industry in attendance.

Being able to learn from the best in the country means our client’s events will benefit from a larger pool of experience. Upon their return to the office Matt, Shawn, and Travis debriefed the team on what they learned and how we can improve for our clients. This was Travis and Shawn’s first appearance at this conference and their experiences differed because of their unique backgrounds.

As a DJ and MC for over 9 years, Shawn was inspired by watching and listening to the top Masters of Ceremony in the country. Attending the DJ Times 2012 DJ of the Year Competition inspired him to plan on competing in future competitions. Travis recently started with the company as both a Client Cordinator and DJ. A big takeaway for Travis was just how different each client is and ways to get to know them better in order to create a more personalized event.

With over 400 companies and 2,000 in attendance, it was also impressive that Rock The House was able to give back to this community with our combined experience. Shawn even won the freestyle dance competition! One powerful quote from the event really impacted our team: “You have one chance to get the picture right, to capture the emotion, to create the signature moment”. This is why we are committed to always growing and learning…our clients’ events are THAT important.

The Knot Wedding Network – Cleveland Summer Spectacular

The Wedding Networking Event of Season

Every bride knows about The Knot. This wedding publication is everywhere and has been the national source for brides for wedding trends and ideas. Once a year, they put on an event in Cleveland as a Wedding Industry networking event and we were honored to be asked to help. This event was presented by Kirkbrides Wedding Planning & Design and featured many elegant details just like their weddings.

This year’s event was held at the Double Tree Tutor Arms Hotel which made the perfect early evening venue for networking, eating, and even some dancing. The hotel provided Cleveland dishes, desserts, and signature drinks from St-Germain. This was a really impressive looking event for a crowd who are not easily impressed. We provided a variety of lighting concepts including gobo designs on the floor and walls, uplighting, and a lighting designer who worked with the entertainment. In addition to event lighting we also offered our Photo Magic Green Screen as a favor to all the guests. Being able to network with the areas best wedding professionals at an event that we helped create made for a truly special evening.

Thanks to all the sponsors who helped make this event so successful:

Posted on August 7, 2012 in All Posts

Party For A Living / Live To Party

Once a year we get together to celebrate another year of successes in the only way we know how…with a blow out party. On paper, this event probably sounds like your holiday party. We had drinks, food, dancing, and awards. Sounds normal enough, right?

Well let’s break down the differences between our party and yours:

  • Drinks – Full open bar. Choices put together based on requests by our team. Jello shots.
  • Food – HUGE buffet by the Mandarin Seafood Buffet.
  • Dancing – Professional dancers competing to see who has the best moves.
  • Awards – Award winners celebrated with high-fives and Jello shots.

Our company culture is the cornerstone of our success. This annual event is a great example of what makes our culture so special. Attendees included DJs, MCs, Lighting Designers, Sound Technicians, Dancers, Mangers, Event Specialists, Full-Time Office staff, and (importantly) their significant others. Everyone, regardless of position, came together for our most looked forward to evening of the year. We love what we do so much and it definitely shows on nights like this. Our DJs were picking songs and our dancers never left the dance floor. This isn’t a job…it’s in our blood!
