MUMTAZ @ TSE 2013 & SEARCH Foundation in Chicago

Yet another fantastic TSE show this year! The world’s largest tradeshow and conference for event professionals took place on January 15-18 in The Windy City bringing together event professionals from all over the globe. What a great place to learn about the latest trends! The conference program was outstanding as well as all the social activities for the conference, definitely a fantastic networking opportunity for everyone! There is nothing like being at a conference with great friends and business colleagues. TSE is a great place to not only catch up but also create new professional relationships that thrive into long-term personal and business relationships.
The view from our and our colleagues hotel rooms were amazing! Love Downtown Chi-Town!
Um, yeah - For those of you that know what this means... LOL!
So, on opening night of the conference we got off the buses to a very cool and unique space outside the City and had to take a freight elevator up... It was awesome - the elevator was its own party featuring a DJ! Awesome idea! It was a great initial impression!
Jenn and Joella in the elevator on the way up enjoying the beats!
So, Joella sits on the SEARCH Foundation board and Thursday night was all about SEARCH! Special shout out to Ben at Diamond Event Group! He was our technical producer and did a wonderful job. As part of fundraising for SEARCH we ask all of our vendors to donate their services... It's such an incredible thing that our event showcasers donate so much of their time, money, product, and energy in helping the organizations! Thank You!
A long time and huge supporting of the industry and SEARCH - Mr. Lenny Talarico!
If you are ever interested - please email Joella at to donate items to the SEARCH Silent Auction. It helps us raise a lot of money to donate back to industry colleagues in times of crisis. 

Special Shout out goes to Mr. Andrew Larris as well for keeping it all on point... He did a fantastic job serving as our Master of Ceremonies. Then we got to play at bit with Catch the Moment's Green Screen Photo Booth! Love our strategic partner - the one and only and Maui's own... Mr. Frank Robinson! Shaka brah!

The following day we headed to the Masters Brunch... Very cool event and we got to sit with new - well not so new friend - Mr. Rick Jobe! We love him... The Presidential theme came together very nicely! 
You had to sneak away and go to the SEARS Tower - What an incredible view... Plus you have to walk out on the edge... At first it's like - UM, will this glass hold?
Finally, a special shout out to Audrey Gordon for helping us thru the events and serving as the TSE Ambassador! LOVE! Until next year - Let's see what Tennessee will hold???

Breakfast Series with the LA Mayoral Candidates

Getting ready for the upcoming Los Angeles Mayoral election, Mumtaz Marketing & Events had the pleasure to plan a series of breakfast forums with the candidates, including special presentations by Councilmember Eric Garcetti, City Controller Wendy Greuel and Councilwoman Jan Perry at the Orpheum Theater in Downtown LA. 

It was a great opportunity for community business developers, small business owners and government officials to come together and get familiar with the Mayoral candidates plans for economic expansion and to ask them questions about their proposed solutions to solve the city’s budget issues. 

Interesting points of view and new ideas where brought up which make the future of our beautiful city an exciting one! Stay tuned for more...
