10 Things To Do At The Pro Mobile Conference 2016
While an expansive educational programme packed with DJ-relevant content lies at its heart, the Pro Mobile Conference offers delegates a whole lot more than that. We’ve compiled ten must-do things that will ensure you get the most out of your two-day stay in Oxfordshire – from harnessing your creative zeal during interactive workshops… to getting the perfect night’s sleep in your deluxe hotel room!

1) Experience the Randy Bartlett/Peter Merry exclusive joint keynote
Perhaps the highlight of the 2016 educational programme, this lead keynote seminar is the one presentation you won’t want to miss! So, make sure you head to the Conference Theatre to see all-round industry legends Randy Bartlett and Peter Merry in action. They’ll be teaming up for an informative, no doubt hilarious session, bringing their experience in the competitive American market to the table. You’re in for a real treat, because it’ll be the first time these renowned speakers have presented a keynote together…

2) Chat with brand reps about new products in the Break Out Rooms
A truly unique element of the Conference is its Break Out Rooms, which give you a chance to check out the latest mobile DJ gear and talk with representatives from top brands. Unlike the busy show-floors at exhibitions, the Break Out Rooms let you take things at a slower pace, trying out new audio and lighting equipment and putting your questions to product experts who deliver in-depth answers.

3) Get suited and booted and dine like a king at the Gala Dinner
Whether you bring your partner or decide to go solo, the Gala Dinner gives all delegates and guests a chance to dress in style and enjoy a sumptuous three course meal inside the elegant ballroom. Of course, it wouldn’t be a party without after-dinner entertainment and we look forward to welcoming you to the Pro Mobile Casino, so you can enjoy a hard-earned drink (or two) and really let your hair down! The Pro Mobile Lifetime Achievement Award, sponsored by DJ Guard, will also be presented during the dinner.

4) Take a gamble at the after-dinner casino night
Seeing your business succeed often involves risk, though the more calculated the better! Why not try your hand at blackjack, poker and craps in our Pro Mobile Conference Casino? After a delicious Gala Dinner you’ll hit the tables with a load of ‘fun money’, but how much will you leave with? Are the odds in your favour? There’ll be a prize for the delegate or guest who manages to win the most by the end of the night!

5) Hit the bar for drinks and a chance to network
Need an excuse to hit the bar after a hard day’s learning? Well, as if that wasn’t an excuse enough, the bar is also a brilliant place to network! Perhaps you’ll feel more at ease with a drink in your hand? Maybe you’ve been waiting for the right time to talk to a fellow delegate about a possible business partnership or idea? Whether you’re getting down to serious business or swapping stories of hilarious gig moments, the bar is likely where many delegates will end up following the Gala Dinner. Just remember, there will still be a full day of learning ahead, so at the end of the night think twice when someone offers you ‘just one more drink’...

6) Catch a perfect night’s sleep in your luxury room
As tempting as it may be to sit in the bar talking shop until the early hours and making crucial contacts, you’ll need to be up bright and early if you want to make Monday’s networking breakfast! Luckily, after a long day of learning and networking on Sunday, you can enjoy the luxury of a comfortable night’s sleep in your deluxe hotel room. Make the most of it!

7) Fuel yourself for the day with a full English breakfast
On Monday morning, tuck into a hearty full English breakie in the Crowne Plaza’s stylish restaurant and start the day as you mean to go on. This networking breakfast is a great way to get to know your fellow delegates, share a coffee with contacts made the previous day and catch up with colleagues or old industry friends. It’s an early start but it’s worth it. For that extra morning buzz you could even take a dip in the pool beforehand – but that’s for the real early risers!

8) Share ideas and get creative in the interactive workshops
While you’ll find a range of expert speakers delivering talks on a variety of themes, from marketing your DJ business to improving your hosting skills, there will also be interactive sessions included in the varied educational programme. These workshops are the ideal time to get creative and share ideas with your fellow delegates – you’ll be working together to come up with imaginative solutions for growing each other’s businesses.

9) Spend some alone time exploring the grounds
With so much going on and heaps of advice and information to take on board, the Conference manages to pack a lot into two days. Sometimes it can beneficial to take ten minutes out from the hustle and bustle of the Conference theatre and Break Out Rooms. The Heythrop Park Hotel is located amongst acres of Oxfordshire countryside, so why not take a stroll, absorb the scenic views and let those ideas sink in? You may just return with an exciting new plan for your DJ business...

10) Sit in on the Meet the Brand interviews
Want to know where the future of audio and lighting gear for DJs is heading? Or what products you can expect to see next? Throughout the two-day Conference representatives from leading brands will take to the stage to talk about their latest products as well as what to expect next. This is also your chance to tell the brands you love what kind of products you’d like from them, giving them a broader understanding of what the modern mobile DJ is after. So, it benefits the brands but it benefits you too – don’t miss it!
