Top 25 Live Events of 2013

When people look at back at Hurricane's 2013, it'll be highlighted by expanding its reach across the northeast. Hurricane used the powerful tool of social media content and marketing to move into other markets.

A strategy that kicked off 2013 with a press conference that announced the company's expansion to Boston, Hurricane saw a boost in regional exposure.

Aside from the live events documented in this post, Hurricane owners/founders Strato Doumanis and Vincent Velasquez created consultation sessions with mid-sized businesses in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts. The seminars used Hurricane Productions' marketing model in the private events platform to demonstrate how to grow brands online.

A majority of 2013's events featured unique hashtags that helped clients share moments via photos and videos on Instagram but also stream and print pics in real-time at each unique event.

Here's a look at the top 25 live events of 2013:

Three Reasons why using "Super Sweet 16" in marketing is stupid

Sweet Sixteen

We offer arguably one of the most premier Sweet 16 experiences in the Northeast. And not once have we used the phrase “Super Sweet 16” in our marketing campaigns.

Our page rank on Google is one of the best for content related to Sweet 16s and again...never used the phrase.

We’re not saying we’re better than you. Maybe a little more creative.

But please, we beg you, stop using 'Super' because its 2013 and you’re simply making this industry look bad. (Also see: outdated, cheesy, corny)

Here are three reasons why your ad campaign for a 'Super Sweet 16' is just plain stupid:

3. When’s the last time you heard a 16-year old use the word ‘Super’?

Aside from the Super Bowl, the word isn’t cool. Better yet, it’s not relevant. So stop.

2. Setting yourself up for a failed sale

How many times do you hear a client say, “I’m interested in a Sweet 16 for my daughter but I’m not looking to have one of those ‘Super Sweet 16s.’

Maybe you don’t want to admit this. But sit down and take a deep breath - the majority of your clientele is middle class.

Just because you include uplighting or TV screens in your entertainment packages doesn’t justify calling it a ‘Super’ Sweet 16.

But don't worry, you can still offer your 'premium services.' No reason to call it Super.

The definition of a ‘Super Sweet 16,’ as presented by MTV includes beyond extravagent decor (your uplighting doesn’t qualify), celebrity appearances/performances (such as Chris Brown and Sean Kingston) and surprises like a luxury sports car waiting at valet.

That brings us to our next point...

1. MTV owns the trademark and created the phrase

It’s one thing to promote pop culture in your product or tie it into what you do. It’s another thing to completely rip off a brand name created by a media conglomerate. (By the way, the show premiered EIGHT years ago).

Talk about lazy, uncreative and flat out boring.

Now...go ahead...wipe your brow and start thinking.

Hurricane Productions is a DJ Entertainment and Event Innovation company out of Red Bank, NJ. Hurricane is known for their incredible attention to detail and making sure that every event they host is better than their client expected.

Hurricane Productions provided DJ entertainment, uplighting, custom "name in lights" gobo and a photo/video montage presentation for Tobi at Woodlake Country Club in Lakewood, NJ.

Tobi's mother was elated with the Hurricane Productions performance for her daughter's Sweet 16. "Keep up the excellent work that you are known for," she said. "The sky is the limit!" She is not the only supporter of Hurricane Productions. Previous clients always recommend the company and some have used them for multiple events as their family DJ Entertainment company.

Tobi and her parents wanted family videos shown at her Sweet 16, so Hurricane Productions did a VHS to DVD conversion and edited the media for them. Photos were scanned and combined with the video to create a montage just for Tobi.

Addison Park Sweet 16 features alternative to photo booth

Instagram Streaming at Events - we were the first to do it. And everyone still loves it.

Brianna's Sweet 16 at Addison Park in Aberdeen NJ used Hurricane's social take on the photo booth concept, the newest out of Hurricane Production's innovation office.

Instagram Streaming incorporates social media to connect with your guests on a whole new level. Guests can snap pictures with their phones at your event, use your custom, hashtag, and see those photos seconds later on screens around the room. The best part about it is that those photos can be printed instantly at stations around the room at your event.

Photos from Instagram are a great alternative to a photo booth. Your guests use Instagram and never have to leave the dance floor.

Brianna and her guests took over a hundred photos at Addison Park using her unique hashtag #briannasweet16. The venue and the lighting made the photos great, too.

Addison Park's beautiful ballroom with high ceilings and tasteful decor is the perfect setting for any Sweet 16 or Wedding. A large, marble dancefloor gives plenty of room for all your guests to dance comfortably and allows your Entertainment to be fully utilized. Hurricane Productions provided entertainment, screens with custom graphics, name in lightsphotography, videography and full ballroom uplighting.

The pink uplighting for Brianna's Sweet 16 was exactly what she wanted the mood to be for the evening. The hues of pink complimented her theme and added a touch of color to all the Pulse Instagram photos.
