July 11, 2012: Annual BBQ Mixer, AV Swap Meet & Business Advice

Nobody’s sure if this is the fourth or fifth year MCAI and PVN have joined in hosting a Media-pro Mixer slash Summer BBQ slash Professional AV Swap Meet with business advice for dessert.  Heck, we can’t even settle on a short name! When July 11th rolls around it will still be a question nobody asks cause we’re just about havin’ FUN! Besides home-cooked burgers and brats with all the fixins, you’ll be BRO’in with fellow pros from every area of the media. Make new business connections and connect with old friends—it’s a great event!

While you’re networking with other professionals over a juicy burger you’ll peruse a variety of gently used audio & video equipment—and perhaps find just what you need. Or you’ll collect a little cash for some AV stuff that you haven’t used for a while. And to keep this a legitimate tax-deductible event (did we mention your accountant is invited, too?) we'll also have a respected speaker with business advice that will help your media business (well, it won't hurt!)

There’s no charge to sell or display your stuff for the swap meet (unless you need to rent an actual table) but to sell anything you do have to register in advance.

The event is $15 at the door for food and the program-- $12 if you prepay online at http://www.newmedia.meetup.com/82/
…and if you are a member of MCAI your entrance and food are FREE! (But register anyway so we know how much food to buy! Duh)

As always, bring a friend and plenty of business cards, headshots, etc—and for this event, don’t forget some extra cash for that piece AV equipment you won’t be able to pass up at such a great price!!

To pre-register for the July 11th All-Media Pro BBQ & Swap Meet, etc go to http://www.meetup.com/newmedia-82/
