This is part 1 of 2 in our series – Networking Advice for Surviving the Entertainment Business.
In this episode we talk with our in house social media guru Marko Torres. Marko shines some light on how to use social media effectively and appropriately. We also discuss individual platforms and how to use each one best.
As 2016 comes to an end, we’re already looking forward to some awesome events in January 2017. If you don’t believe us, check out our events page!
One such event will bring our team on a (short) ride from our Downtown Orlando location to the Orlando Science Center. Otronicon will be held January 13 – 16, and our staff will be there to demo some technology that we’re working to make available to for our Melrose members (and some that’s already accessible)! You’ll be able to participate in this virtual ring-side game event in one of four ways (or do them all). We’re calling it The Melrose Immersive Experience. We hope you’ll come find our booth!

Did we mention that the voting period for the third annual Melrose Awards is underway? If you haven’t already, you should check out all the submissions that were sent in by some majorly talented people, and VOTE! Go ahead, clicky…we’ll wait right here. [Edit: The voting period is closed…Plan on coming to the Expo to see who won!!]
Wasn’t that so much fun? If you’re not careful, you’ll get some of those songs stuck in your head, amirite?? Okay, so that aside, the winners will be announced at our newly named Melrose Creative Expo! I know, you’re shrugging and wondering, “Why is it a big deal to stray from the short-lived tradition of calling it an Anniversary?” Well, that’s because we wanted these celebrations to be less about the mere passage of time and more about the creativity, community and innovation that has grown in and around the Melrose Center. Our Studio and Lab doors will be open with hands-on demonstrations inside. A number of scheduled live performances will keep us all entertained (I can’t promise that this won’t turn into a dance party) while you connect with exhibitors throughout the Melrose Center.
We plan on celebrating big and we want you to join us! Save the date: Saturday, February 11, 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM.
Also, if you would like to be an exhibitor at this event, please complete the online form and we’ll be in touch!
