VampItUpEvents.com - Coming soon
Vamp It Up Events, a local Memphis company in the making, is currently planning their first annual charity convention with a vampire theme.
If you have never been to a convention, these meet ups are a great way to encounter new friends, greet your favorite celebrities, and just have fun! Most of these gatherings are usually connected to sci-fi groups or some sort of pop culture phenomenon and are hosted by huge event companies. However, a local Memphis event business in the making is currently organizing a somewhat new concept in conventions.
If negotiations go well, this convention will be set for May of 2011 on the outskirts of Memphis, TN. Planned to take place outdoors on a 110 acre facility, attendees will experience entertainment with a Woodstockish atmosphere. This event will be strictly non-profit with proceeds going to two different cancer organizations.
The program is planning to have the following:
Celebrities to sign autographs and take photographs with the attendees (The events company is trying to obtain guests of the vampiric nature)
A blood drive
Q and A sessions with the guests
A variety of merchandise booths
DJ and bands for evening parties
A surprise that can’t be revealed until negotiations are finished!
As mentioned above, everything is planned to go to negotiations so let us know if you would be willing to attend. If so, what celebrities you would like to meet. Will you be coming from another state, country or are you local? If you are a regular convention attendee, tell us what you like and dislike about the events you have attended.
If you are a local Memphis resident and would like to volunteer your time for this charity event, please contact Vamp It Up Events at firstname.lastname@example.org.
