Event City Live Editorial Broadcast System Announced
Ability to Auto-Post and Podcast Live from Anywhere
Social Media will never be the same again!

By Alex Jauregui and Anthony Ansola
Reporter & Editor
Event City Premier Magazine

The Event City Ecosphere just got a bit friendlier and much more productive as the company begins testing their new auto posting and podcast type broadcasting service for journalist – Event City Live Editorial Broadcast System. Both systems will allow the Event City Premier Magazine Journalists to create and post Live Broadcasts and Writing from anywhere in the world. In fact this article was posted remotely without logging onto the Magazine’s back end, only using the new system.

“We’ve simplified the structure of our online presentations, both for our Magazine Network and our growing Blog Networks”, says Nolan Apostle, Co-founder and CEO of Event City. He adds, “Our Writers, Reporters, Stringers, Photographers, all of our Journalism Teams will find this system very easy and productive to use, giving them the opportunity to post Live Broadcast from shows, projects, conventions or anywhere and from any part of the world.” The system will eventually be integrated into the company’s Advertising Network, The MUSIC SKOOP, PINK SECTION Project, the EC EMPORIUM, HOSPITALITY and ESTATE SALE Blogs to start out. As the Premier Magazine Division attracts more Journalist and other Editorial Teams they will virally grow the network and content will be posted much easier than ever. The task of posting content, stories, podcasts, blogs, reviews, all of it, will be more appealing and enjoyable – it will be much less a job and much more fun!

The Editorial Broadcast System will give Writers, Podcast Producers, Reporters, Social Media Managers, and Bloggers the opportunity to share their experiences about the Hospitality, Special Events, Concert, Music, Art, Film, Travel, Entertainment industries and more. This will allow Event Planners, Musicians, Performers, Show Producers, Venues, Theaters, Motion Picture Producers, Hotels, Restaurants and many others the opportunity to expand their audience and reach out to both a B2B audiences as well as the Consumer. You can sign up now to begin using this new service for your business or projects. The benefits are immense!

The company plans to roll out this new feature sometime in the very near future prior to the re-launch of the Event City Network. They are seeking serious Journalist to jump on board to help test and navigate the system. You can contact the EDITORIAL TEAM by sending an email to EC Premier Magazine. Send your resume, and a short message as to why they should bring you on board to test the new system and potentially bring you in as a permanent member of their Editorial Staff.

The Event City Live Editorial Broadcast System will give the Editorial Team the ability to draft, write, create, and post articles, reviews and stories with images and video as well. All of this including Live Audio Broadcasting without even sending to an Editor, Engineer or Producer will be featured characteristics of the site.

Virgin America Appoints New VP of Marketing

Virgin America Airline Appoints New VP of Marketing

Virgin America, California-based airline told Event City that they have appointed Luanne Calvert as its vice president of marketing.

Luanne Calvert New VP Marketing for Virgin America

Luanne Calvert New VP Marketing For Virgin America

Calvert will take the place of Porter Gale who left Virgin earlier in 2011 to pursue other opportunities.

Calvert will lead the airline’s Brand and Online Marketing, In-flight Content and Loyalty teams.

She will play a leading role in developing the Virgin America brand as the airline continues to grow into new markets across North America.

Calvert comes to Virgin America with an impressive array of successful companies as a leading digital marketing strategist and online consultant with Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy’s (LVMH) Fendi and Moleskine brands in Italy as well as Calvin Klein Cosmetics, Netflix and Ebay. Calvert served as creative director at Google, where she managed the brand globally and developed campaigns to bring Google products directly to consumer and business audiences — including Google Checkout, Google Apps, iGoogle and Google Maps.

Virgin America, known for its use of social media and edgy marketing campaigns, has been successful at conveying the idea that the company provides an entertaining and comfortable way to travel.

Calvert said her approach to marketing and advertising steers away from use of traditional vehicles like TV and billboard advertising. She prefers using other avenues – like social media or events – to draw in customers.

The airline, based in Burlingame, flies to 14 cities, increasing to 16 by the end of the year. The company said sales grew to $724 million last year, a 32 percent improvement over 2009.

Virgin America is planning the first major renovation of its in-flight offerings. The move holds big implications for the airline, which has attracted a strong following among travelers who say they are drawn to amenities like power plugs at every seat, a wide array of video games and even techno music in the bathrooms.

Travelers won’t see the changes until 2012, executives said. We wish Ms. Calvert the best of success for her and Virgin America in the coming years!

Special Events Tradeshow in San Jose May 12

Bring your business cards and brochures. Balls if you juggle, a guitar if you play and a trick or three up your sleeve if you are a magical performer, but whatever and whoever you are, if you are involved in the Special Events Industry this is the place to be on Thursday, May 12, 2011. Here’s a Special Event for the Special Events Industry, and Event City’s Premier magazine will be there covering the show. The event takes place in the southern Silicon Valley at a venue known for being “The Center for Business and Events”, CLUB AUTO SPORT. The company’s slogan, “Where so many businesses are driven to success”, is a great location for parties and special events of all types. A beautiful showroom with the potential for so many different types of projects and special events!

The event is being hosted by the Encore Company, a Wedding Fair producer from the San Jose California area, they are also producing this premier event. You can register for free at their website or by clicking on this registration link.

Club Auto Sport hosts a unique business model with the idea of building an in-house network of commerce. It is a vibrant, vital business community that accelerates growth through a built-in marketplace. A unique commercial condominium facilty for sale or lease from a single executive office suite to 8,000 sq.ft or more.

The stunning 10,000 sq. ft. Event Center at Club Auto Sport is a perfect venue for a variety of social, charitable, political, or corporate functions — from your company’s holiday party to a major event or a private gathering of friends for a special occasion. Whether your interest is cars, cabernets or camaraderie with those who shape the valley, Club Auto Sport is your destination.

Event City has never covered an event at Club Auto Sport, and this Editor has not had the privilege  of attending a function there either, so expect my raw coverage of what this event location will offer to our Events & Creative Industry audience.
