Digital DJ Expo, an online rendition of DJ Expo, will run November 16-19 at www.thedjexpo.com.
Though the 2020 DJ Expo, the industry’s longest-running trade show/exhibition, was cancelled due to pandemic concerns, Digital DJ Expo will offer a variety of benefits for DJs of all stripes.
Produced by DJ Times, the online experience will present a new and different version of the show that’s been bringing the industry together since its 1990 inception – and it’s totally free for all visitors.
Similar to the flesh-and-blood DJ Expo, the digital version will present the show’s main three components – technology exhibitions, educational seminars and sponsored DJ events – plus giveaways for lucky winners.
On the site, show exhibitors will be able to present their featured wares via product videos and dedicated spec info, plus sponsored seminars and performances. And for those looking for discussions and tutorials tackling the hottest topics and trends, Digital DJ Expo will offer a stout slate of video seminars and keynotes that touch on all ends of the DJ spectrum – mobile, club, studio and more.
One such session, “Book More Business in 2021: Strategies & Differentiators,” a tutorial by Joshua Volpe of Kalifornia Entertainment in Rochester, N.Y., will present plenty of solutions. As a successful solo operator, Volpe offers unique perspectives that will appeal to a large number of North American mobile entertainers. From implementing effective marketing strategies to eventually improving your business outcomes, Volpe delivers tried-and-true approaches, while also acknowledging and adapting to the market’s new realities. If you’re looking forward to a fresh, new start in 2021, Volpe will help show you the way.
Another seminar, “The State of the Mobile DJ Industry: A Multi-Op Panel,” will be moderated by industry leader Mike Walter of New Jersey’s Elite Entertainment. This informational and inspiration panel will tackle the topics of the day – from COVID and its impact to survival methods and the industry’s immediate future. Featuring a panel of multi-operators that stretches across the country, the seminar will include: Kristen Wilson of Our DJs Rocks in Orlando Fla.; Glenn Roush of LeForce Entertainment in Dallas Texas; Jorge Lopez of J&M Entertainment in Los Angeles, Calif.; and Howard Wallach of A-Z Entertainment in Chicago, Ill. Prepare to be enlightened.
We know that 2020 was a difficult year for all associated with the DJ industry, but DJ Times remains dedicated to presenting the most useful content and ideas for those serious about the business and the craft of DJing. We believe Digital DJ Expo will close the year on a necessary up-note. Until the next in-person DJ Expo – Aug. 9-12, 2021 at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, N.J. – DJ Times will be there for all DJs.
