San Diego, CA, February 26, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Forget plain, boring corporate event videos. Clients of Destination Services San Diego (DSSD), a locally-headquartered destination management company, can now have Hollywood-esque, red-carpet style video documentaries of their corporate events held in San Diego. This unique offering is made possible through the new partnership of DSSD and Shindy Media, producer of entertainment-driven video and web content for marketing and branding. Such videos can be used as exciting giveaways for event participants to extend the value of each conference, as a compelling recruiting tool for prospective employees, and as footage for a company’s media relations efforts, among many other uses.
“Shindy Media’s unique approach to how they produce and distribute media content fits perfectly with the way we do business at DSSD,” said Kurt Bjorkman, director at DSSD. “Reducing complexities and creating value propositions for the meetings industry is imperative in today’s marketplace. We are excited to be partnering with Shindy Media and promoting this fantastic new product.”
Clients who use DSSD to arrange their events, including lodging, event facilities, travel and entertainment, can now include this unique video keepsake in their conference package. The Shindy Media crew will shoot the client’s event like a red-carpet event, capturing “celebrity” interviews of attendees and staff and memorable highlights of the conference. The finished product will look as if it were produced for a network entertainment lifestyle program.
“We’re really intrigued to offer this to corporate clients,” said Ron Marcus, CEO of Shindy Media.
“People like to be entertained. The concept behind our work is to provide corporate coverage that is also entertaining. We believe this will be an effective tool for building team spirit, recruiting and PR. In partnering with DSSD, we’ve found a company that shares our philosophy of service to clients, and I think it’s a really good fit.”
