Event Marketing Rockstars SFOn Wednesday, July 31, the Event Marketing Rockstars SF held its 2013-2014 planning session at Bloodhound’s corporate headquarters, a funky multi-level office space that once served as an art gallery in San Francisco’s Mission District.

Founded by Ian Adams, Event Marketing Rockstars SF is a meet-up group that brings together event marketing professionals from around the Bay Area, enabling them to share expertise, exchange war stories, and learn best practices in meeting, conference and event planning and promotions from each other.

About a dozen members gathered together to determine discussion topics for the year, and decide on project managers. After a quick meeting, the team was treated to a wine and cheese reception, courtesy of our wonderful hosts, Ellie MacBride and Jason Lee of Bloodhound.
