I’m part of the production crew back stage of this 1 amazing week of events. Tons of GREAT material, insight, advice, and just pure amazing entrepreneurs that registered for this event. First off, the production is amazing. We use a company called LMG to assist us with the stage production. There are many different vendors who are participating in this event, but the Ernst & Young production crew are fully responsible for this Ernst & Young event (well that’s obvious). But being apart of this event and seeing the millions of dollars to produce this event is just an amazing experience.
The problems we had on the first day (behind the scenes) were worked out. After I got through that phase, I was able to look over other members work to soak in the knowledge that can be overwhelming. We are twittering, face booking, linkedin’ing, post daily sessions, cutting highlights on the spot, quoting speakers by the minutes, on going interviews, and more that I’m not even aware of behind the scenes.
Anyone who walks into these ballrooms or to this event, will think this is a BIG event. But any average Joe wouldn’t think it would cost millions to produce this! The equipment are just overwhelming. Trucks and trucks of equipment and large amount of crew members.
Then there are evening events from dinners to concerts. While these events happen, they are setting up the evening events. It’s just an amazing experience and it makes me even more knowledgeable on the films I want to produce and market to the world.
