Feature Friday: App World Guest List + Mindful Meetings & Millennials

Find me on:

The #eventtech and app world can be bridged with many different industries, as we all know by the growing number of company events held per year. Although the position of event coordinator has moved down the list of most stressful jobs of 2015 by Forbes since last year, it's still important to acknowledge the health and wellness of your clients and team.

That's why we were thrilled to be able to participate in Work From Om's #MindfulMeetings at one of our favorite (and previously featured, way back when) venues, Offsite NYC. Guests included event professionals from around the area, and we even got to get some #techsytalk in (between oms) with our friends from Liz King Events.


When it comes to selecting your mobile event registration app or event guest list app, keep this wellness factor in mind: more time dedicated to doing a job well done and less stress. Read on below through this week's highlights for our suggestions.

Featured Venue: The Cutting Room


A 45-foot hand carved Stratocaster bar, a 15-foot chandelier made of electric guitars, a baby grand piano, and a green room with seating for 12 VIPs, the Cutting Room NYC is the space for those with music on the mind. With a capacity for 240 seated guests and 450 standing, the venue is ideal for all types of events--and not just those that feature a really happenin' musical group. 



VIP treatment is also trending this year, and the 2 balconies, equipped with a private bar and bathroom, as well as the additional private balcony in the front bar, will cover all your special treatments. The state-of-the-art sound and lighting amplifies the authentic, regal environment that surrounds guests. If there won't be any tunes, use the 16-foot and 10-foot projection screens to include some gamification or informational content to keep the participation lively


Opt for adding some small bites from the kitchen, or design a special reception menu with the venue's onsite event management team. Clients such as British Airways, Bloomberg Foundation, and SNL have already utilized this rock 'n roll iconic venue: now it's your turn.

Featured #Eventprofs: Apartment Two Events


Aiming to get inside the mind of the millennial? Look no further than the inspiration provided by the boutique event group, Apartment Two Events, the brainchild of marketing/event coordinator Erin Branham. These event professionals are excellent to consult when it comes to insights that go deeper into the world of the Millennial.


The team uses with experimental and guerrilla marketing tactics to bring their client's brand/service message to life in fundraisers, employee training, launch parties, and so much more. Based out of South Florida, they've worked on projects with TEDxBocaRaton and meeting planning/team building for Cultivate, providing some of the best services and advice especially for those only visiting South Florida.


Their branding is fun and fresh, inspiring and innovative, and the blog has a ton of content worth reading (or Spritzing...remember that?) in your spare time. Connect with them here.

Featured Event Detail: Candy With A Twist


Yes, wellness is important. Yes, we have a sweet tooth. Flossing twice a day and upping the steps on our fitness tracker would allow some room for Candy With A Twist's original creation, the custom marshmallow. 

The cold winter months of the Northeast are perfect for hot chocolate and marshmallows, and what better way to guzzle down some steamy sweet chocolate than with your own logo on a giant marshmallow with either a big mug or bits of your custom creation chopped up, of course.


The company also offers other personalized candy gifts and kits, already featured by BizBash, we think our partners at Eventbrite would love these for our next extravaganza, too. Connect with the Imagemallows creators here.
