Atlantic City, N.J. — Get ready and make your plans, DJs… DJ Expo is set for Aug. 10-13 at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City. Along with presenting the DJ industry’s largest exhibition hall and its liveliest sponsored events, DJ Expo will deliver another deep schedule of educational seminars, panels and keynotes.

New confirmed seminars for mobile entertainers include:

Fix the Mix: Easy Ways to Trick Out Your Mobile Sets

Presented by San Diego’s DJ Staci, this session will help keep your music mix up-to-date and unique. Learn how to deliver the “same old” music you play week in & week out in a fresh, new way! Learn wedding-friendly wordplays, simple effects and scratch drops, plus make fun remixes right from your DJ software with no production background. It’s time to get creative with DJ Staci.

Why the Caterer Should Not Do the Lighting

Presented by Mike Fernino of Connecticut’s Music in Motion Entertainment, this sales-and-marketing session offers a specific niche concept to combat venues that try to steal away your lighting work — and do an inferior job at that! Topics include: social media to establish a subconscious awareness of your services; how to sell lighting to your customer; how to establish the difference between good and bad lighting; the “Enhancement Concept”; and establishing yourself as an expert.

Photo Booth — The Next Generation

Much like karaoke, photo booths have proven to be a long-lasting addition to the mobile’s arsenal, one that has yet to reach its saturation point. Dave Stephenson, owner of Ismilepod, will teach how to create a photo-booth strip, how and why to set up an online gallery to host pictures, how to set up an iPad booth, and how to market the features of your photo booth to expand options to offer your customers. Bring your laptops!
