By August 8, 2016September 28th, 2016Conferences we LOVE, meet the team

To say I’m a little bit giddy about ILEA Live being in Austin, Texas is like, the understatement of the CENTURY.

I’m feeling more like this:

and if I’m honest, a little bit of this, too:

But don’t worry, I’m not going to be rockin’ the mom jeans at this conference, not this year at least…

I’ve rolled into Austin, Texas a couple of days early before the big conference and have been getting things prepared for our big debut of The Apprentice Program in the first ever ILEA Live Technology Hub.

It’s so nice to drop by all my old vendors’ showrooms, like Marquee Rents and Rock-n-Roll Rentals, and be greeted with smiling, familiar faces, offers of chips + salsa and all that wonderful Texas hospitality.

Austin is such a great city for LIVE events.

We hope you are making the trek all across the country (or the world like me!) to attend the annual ILEA Live conference, the ULTIMATE global conference for creative events professionals, happening August 11-13, 2016 at the JW Marriott in downtown Austin, Texas.

Here’s four reasons why we should connect at ILEA Live:

1. demo The Apprentice Program software

Get hands-on and play with the software, learn how it works and how it’ll simplify the process of training your interns, ask questions and get signed up to be part of our global mentor network for the Fall semester!

Remember, licenses to the software start at $75 USD, what a deal!

2. buy your UNDERCOVER SUPERHERO #eventprofs t-shirt + hoodie

By popular demand, we are making UNDERCOVER SUPERHERO shirts and stuff!  If you are an event professional, it’s time to reveal your superhero status with one of our t-shirts…

Buy yours now through August 19, 2016, when the campaign ends.

We are printing a very limited run of these t-shirts, hoodies (and yes, even “My Mom/Dad is a Superhero” onesies…eee!!!) and you can order them online at our ILEA Live booth or by simply clicking this link here for The Simplifiers merchandise store.  Prices starting at $18.99 USD…poof, so simple and easy.

Meet The Simplifiers team, give us a hug and a fist bump and let’s take a selfie together.  We’ll post it on our various super awesome social media channels and you walk away with a special $50 off PROMO CODE that you can use for The Apprentice Program this Fall.  Sweet deal…doesn’t get much better than that.

4. find out where the very best tacos, BBQ and food trucks are in Austin

Keep in mind, Austin, Texas was my hometown for 15 years…let’s just say, I know some stuff about this city.  Come by the booth and we’ll share our very best places to get a snack, sip on a craft cocktail, soak up the sun, get your hair did, plus where to see live music and where is good for dinner nearby the JW Marriott.  My team and I have you covered…we’re all long-time Austinites and can point you in the right direction!

Just a sneak peek of our Austin Hot Spots list:

Stubb’s BBQ – one of the best BBQ joints in downtown Austin

Standup paddle boarding on Lady Bird Lake – “SUP” for those in the know

Hopdoddy Burger Bar – you’ve never lived until you’ve had one of their burgers…TRUST ME.
