Createasphere, a leading company that brings together experts, exhibitors, sponsors and attendees to share a vested interest in understanding and shaping the future of the industry, will hold its inaugural Executive Marketplace for Houses of Worship from July 20-21 in Chicago at the O’Hare Embassy Suites. An invitation-only event, the conference provides an exclusive opportunity for leaders in religious media from over 50 mega churches, to participate in personalized solution-focused purchasing meetings. This unique event allows delegates from each ministry to identify their technology needs and then Createasphere puts them in consultation with sponsors from the industry to determine the best workflow and technology challenges for their congregation.
“At Bexel, we immediately recognized that the Executive Marketplace for Houses of Worship is more than just a tradeshow, it’s an extremely vetted group of participants looking for specific solutions,” says Lee Estroff, director of broadcast technical sales, Bexel. “Attendees are from mega churches with known audio and video needs—in which we’ve received their requirements, budgets and background in advance—making this a particularly unique exhibition.”
Onsite, Bexel’s Mobile Production Facility will facilitate a mobile showcase, divided in half offering a live studio and presentation area. Once inside, attendees will be presented with on-the-spot product solutions and demonstrations.
“Bexel’s Mobile Production Facility gives us the unique opportunity and flexibility to demonstrate a lot of products within a small space,” says Estroff. “Attendees can actually visualize and see products in a real-world, working environment and potentially expand their horizons and get new ideas seeing the truck and products in use. So many church productions are becoming more advanced, incorporating high-definition and even 3D in some cases, so we look forward to introducing attendees to products that will hopefully be of interest to them.”
In addition to demonstrating RF audio products, microphones, various camera formats and cameras such as Camera Corps’ Q-Ball, Bexel will showcase products from sister Vitec Brands including Autoscript, Litepanels, IMT and Camera Dynamics inside Bexel’s Mobile Production Facility. “This event is a great way for us to introduce our products and services, while offering an overview of Bexel’s capabilities so that when a user has a particular production need in the future, they’ll know who we are and what we can offer them,” Estroff adds.
