PROMOTIONAL GIVE AWAY!

I'm donating a two hour Austin Powers meet/greet appearance (less travel should it apply/upon availability) to our door prizes at The Sunburst Convention. This is for our "Buyer's Bingo" drawing. I challenge other Sunburst attendees to offer the same or similar. It is only available to our attending registered Buyers. One might ask "How does that work?" Easy. I will make a two hour appearance for free. Should they want me for more time, they have to pay me my regular hourly rate for more. Those who do shows (like singers, comedians, etc) might want to offer a special price for a booking. Or...a free booking. (You can limit the time, like a free 20 minute show or something like that.) You can also put "Restrictions Apply" on your offer. Even if one of your regular clients wins, it's good faith efforts like this that put you in good graces with the agent/buyer and it pays off. Bookings beget bookings. It's a one time deal.

KICKOFF PARTY UPDATE

UPDATE: Allison Walker Torres with CFNEWS13, will be covering our KICKOFF PARTY at I-Drive/360 on Wednesday, August 31! We may need to leave the hotel a little earlier in order to get the coverage. We want as many registered entertainers in costume as possible.

NOTE: It has been brought to my attention that there may be local look alikes coming to I-Drive/360 to take advantage of our convention without actually registering. This is true, it may happen. However, rest assured that if someone tries to "crash" our event (in costume) without registering, they will be asked to leave the premises by I-Drive/360 security. ONLY those registered may be interviewed by Allison. Only those registered will be allowed to do our "Red Carpet Walk" there and ONLY those registered will be allowed the drink specials and other discounts offered at I-Drive/360. Finally, ONLY those registered will be given FREE tickets to Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum, The Orlando Eye (Giant Ferris Wheel) and The Orlando Aquarium. I"ll post this on our web site as well.


The general public is MORE than invited to come to I-Drive/360 and enjoy the festivities. We'll have two stages providing entertainment. One will be in the courtyard of I-Drive/360 in front of Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum and The Orlando Eye. The other will be happening inside TIN ROOF BAR, Orlando's newest and hottest live music venue.

Come and enjoy the fun. There is no charge to attend this event.

Thank you Ilene at Passion PR Consulting- Our PR Firm!

55+ Communities Register For The Sunburst Convention

While we welcome, as always our many agents and Talent buyers to Sunburst, we are excited to see a new trend this year.  We are getting several 55+ communities attending Sunburst this year. In the past, these communities relied on talent agents to book their entertainment. Many still do. But it seems many want to open their horizons to see what other Talent is out there. They want to see the talent directly.  And they are bringing their entire entertainment boards with them. This is very exciting for all of us. They are great audiences and each one hosts numerous events per year.  We hope many of our attendees leave Sunburst with bookings at these communities in their pockets.

PARTY at I-Drive/360 in Orlando! Tips to Celebrity Impersonators Benefit PULSE ORLANDO

Here's an update for our 2016 Sunburst Convention schedule!

The Convention is planned for August 31-4, 2016.  This is Labor Day Weekend, so it gives you that extra MONDAY for free time and/or travel time.

Here's the FUN ADDITION for 2016!  The night before the convention, (Normally our Welcome Party night), we will be boarding a bus from the hotel and going to I-Drive/360...Orlando's newest entertainment/Shopping/Dining attraction. It's our Kickoff Party!

We will have a Red Carpet Walk and 16 lucky entertainers will be performing at Tin Roof Bar AND in the Courtyard of I-Drive/360.   Everyone will receive free tickets to their three attractions.

Some locals may wish to drive on their own and meet us there.  If you do that, we will still give you a wristband for Madame Tussueds and the other attractions.  Costumes are welcome and encouraged.

Any Tips received will be donated to #OneOrlando.
