Behind the Scenes: Capturing Every Conference Moment

Imagine spending four days at a conference as an attendee and as the eyes and ears for everyone who couldn’t make it. From the crack of dawn to late into the evening, our team is on the move, cameras in hand, drones overhead, capturing everything from the wisdom shared in seminars to the vibrant interactions at networking events. This isn’t just about taking pictures or filming; it’s about capturing moments that matter, insights that empower, and connections that build communities.

Our approach to covering the conference is holistic. We dive into seminars discussing everything from gaming laws to the latest tech innovations, ensuring that we can bring you content that’s engaging and enlightening. And when it comes to networking events, we’re right there in the thick of it, capturing the laughter, the deals being made, and the community coming together.

The creative muscle behind this Herculean task? A three-person team skilled in turning ordinary moments into extraordinary stories. With drones, we capture stunning aerial views of the venue, offer instant photos for immediate engagement, and produce daily video recaps to ensure you’re caught up on everything.

Why do we put in all this effort? It’s simple. At BurkeMedia Productions, we believe in the power of digital marketing not just to tell stories but to build bridges. Through our coverage, we’re not just showing you what you missed; we’re inviting you to experience the event’s knowledge, connections, and energy as if you were there.

Covering an event like the Western Indian Gaming Conference is a marathon, not a sprint. Our team’s day begins long before the first seminar starts, preparing equipment, scouting locations, and strategizing the day’s coverage. Using drones, we capture breathtaking aerial shots of the venue, setting the stage for what’s to come. Throughout the day, we’re in constant motion, photographing speakers, filming seminars, and engaging with attendees, all while ensuring our content is instantly available for digital consumption.

From Dawn Till Dusk: Our Team’s Commitment

But our work doesn’t end when the conference doors close. Back at the studio, our evenings are spent editing, curating, and piecing together the day’s story, creating daily recaps that highlight the event’s key moments, insights, and atmosphere. It’s a relentless pace, driven by our commitment to excellence and our passion for storytelling.

Building Engaging Apps to Bring the Conference Community Together

We don’t stop at just recording. Last year, we upped our game by launching an official event app for both Android and Apple users. This wasn’t just a new venture but a testament to our commitment to innovation and making information accessible to everyone, anywhere, at any time. The app allows users to view the schedule throughout the date, select the seminars they are most interested in to ensure they don’t miss out, and receive push notifications for upcoming announcements. This builds engagement and community among the attendees.

For any brand looking to make an impact, remember this: it’s not just about being seen; it’s about being remembered. With BurkeMedia Productions, you’re not just getting coverage; you’re getting a partner dedicated to bringing your event to life online, ensuring that every seminar, every handshake, and every smile is captured and shared, helping you build a lasting digital legacy.

So, if you’re looking to make your next event unforgettable, let’s talk. At BurkeMedia Productions, we’re about much more than just capturing moments; we’re about creating memories that resonate and inspire.
