As Photo Booth companies expand and upscale their businesses to include other Mobile Entertainment options, Photo Booth Expo has found a unique opportunity to bring the top level of DJ business/performance education to South Point during #PBX2020.
In cooperation with John Young and his team at Disc Jockey News/DJNTV/PBNTV, The 2020 Photo Booth Expo welcomes the The DJNTV 2020 DJ Conference to PBX. Through this cooperative effort, DJ Companies who rent Photo Booths, and Photo Booth companies who offer DJs will now have a single event where their employees can experience the best training available.
To take advantage of all that is being offered by both educational tracks (see below) you’ll need either a FULL DJ pass, which allows access to all DJ and PBX seminars, or the DJNTV Track Upgrade ($100) available to all who have already purchased a PBX Key Pass. (Click on “Buy Tickets” and scroll all the way to the bottom).
Here’s a look at all this being offered by John Young and his team:

2:00 pm: Dean Carlson: Climbing Out Of The Crowd: How do you stand out in a sea of DJ mediocrity? We have all been there at one point or another – wondering exactly what steps are needed to reach the goals that Dean has set for himself and his company. For years the message has been that we just need to charge this or that. Maybe we have self-detonated our own plans with the lies we tell ourselves, like “not in my market,” or we have been to seminars, read books and watched DVDs that have just the bits and pieces…but not a step by step plan. Well, this seminar is for you. Not only will Dean share how he has gotten to where he is today, but he will be offering a map to that plan and how to convey your true worth to potential clients.
3:00 pm: Dave Ternier: Word Of Mouth: Most know that word of mouth is generally considered the best form of marketing in the world.
