NJPAC's Spotlight Gala 2018

The Women’s Association of NJPAC’s Spotlight Gala 2018

The Women’s Association of NJPAC’s Spotlight Gala 2018 kicks off NJPAC’s season and benefits NJPAC and its arts education programs. Event is on Saturday, September 29 @ 5:30PM – 11:30PM at New Jersey Performing Arts Center. Festive Black Tie Attire.

The Women’s Association of NJPAC has been raising money for NJPAC and creating magical moments for friends of the Arts Center for nearly 25 years now. The WA’s annual Spotlight Gala is always the party of the year in New Jersey–not just for the spectacular entertainment, but for the remarkable party that surrounds it.

This September, we’re going to out-do ourselves with a celebration of the musical legacies of Lena, Billie and Sarah, a one-time-only performance, features special surprise guest Valerie Simpson and music greats Cyrille Aimée, Southside Johnny, Raul Midón, Alice Smith, and Bernie Williams, performing songs made famous by jazz divas Lena Horne, Billie Holiday and Sarah Vaughan. Hosted by six-time GRAMMY®-winning bassist Christian McBride and his Big Band!

Funds raised through this remarkable evening will send teaching artists into schools, put instruments into the hands of schoolchildren, and keep world-class artists on NJPAC’s stages.

2018 New Jersey Digital Marketing Conference 

This year, the New Jersey Digital Marketing Conference (NJDMConf) presented by SEMGeeks is taking over the shore, and #HipNJ has the scoop!

We spoke with Conference Planning Committee members Aimee Mnich, Christina Diecidue, Pete Schauer and Chris Delany to learn more about the event, taking place Friday, July 20 at Bell Works in Holmdel.

Founded on innovation and creativity, NJDMConf has become the premiere marketing industry event in the tri-state area. Gathering like-minded thought leaders, NJDMConf was put in place to educate individuals on the latest digital trending topics, provide valuable networking opportunities, and allow a community to come together and share industry tips relevant to building up a brand.

The group saw a need for a marketing-focused event in New Jersey. However, it has since become much more widespread.  “Although it is a Jersey-based event, it has become larger than that because of the talent we bring in,” the committee states. People are coming in from across the country to attend.

NJDMConf is a full-day of thought-provoking lectures from industry leaders. These knowledgeable digital marketing professionals are interested in sharing their experiences, providing valuable insight into how they became successful, and showing you the tools needed in order to do so. Both collaborative and fun, innovators from all over the state will flock to the shore area in search of understanding trending digital topics imperative to growing their business. Speakers include Dani Toth from Google and Ty Lingley of Unbounce. “We work with a lot of talented people internally and through our partners, so we are able to cultivate great speakers,” the committee says.

Anyone can purchase tickets. Whether you are a business owner looking to learn more about digital marketing, or a college student, you will leave with knowledge to use to your advantage.
