Pro Mobile’s Editor To Host Panel Sessions At BPM | PRO
Eddie Short, Pro Mobile’s editor, will host two separate panel discussion sessions at next week’s BPM | PRO show as part of a full programme of mobile DJ-focused educational content running across all three days of the event. Each session will see Eddie joined by a panel of leading DJs to discuss a specific topic related to mobile DJing.

The first panel will discuss Creative Mobile DJ Lighting and take place on the opening day of the show, Sunday the 11th of September, at 2pm. Lighting that enhances the mood of an event and creates a party atmosphere is one of the key aspects of running a modern mobile DJ service. With recent advances in technology and the affordability of equipment, there has never been a better time for mobile DJs to use lighting creatively to produce spectacular results for their clients. The latest lighting equipment will be on display on the BPM | PRO show floor, but just as important as choosing the right fixtures is setting them up effectively and using them to their full potential. The DJs on this panel will discuss everything from practical issues such as fixture placement and keeping cables tidy, to photographing your lightshow and selling it to prospective customers.

Eddie’s second panel session, From DJ To Host, will take place on the final day of the show, Tuesday the 13th of September, starting at 2pm. One of the biggest trends in the mobile DJ world over the past few years is the move many DJs have made into becoming the host of the events at which they are booked to perform. Particularly relevant to the wedding market, DJs who offer hosting services are able to command significantly higher fees and also often find that they become better ‘connected’ to the guests at their functions making for a packed dancefloor later on in the evening. However, if you’re a mobile DJ considering making the move into hosting, it can be a daunting prospect as there is no hard and fast set of rules as to exactly what a wedding host does. Join Pro Mobile magazine’s editor, Eddie Short, and a panel of leading wedding hosts for this information-packed session that will discuss every element of hosting from preparation to performance, marketing to making memories.
