EXPO EXTRA – October 2018

Sunday was So. Much. Fun!!! You won’t want to miss the next EXPO on March 10, 2019 at the Alpharetta Marriott but in the meantime, here’s what teens and their Mitzvah parents were in to this past weekend.

1. First, Prizes. What’d you win?? Lots of families found out at check in that they had won a door prize from one of the exhibiting vendors – a great way to kick off the afternoon! Families won gift cards, hotel overnights, and vendor services. Sweet!  

2. Cool Places.  More than two dozen venues exhibited at EXPO, including non-traditional spots for gamers, adventurers and those looking for a destination-type of celebration weekend.  From hotels to event halls to wineries and beyond, there was a place for everyone!

3. Terrific Tastes. Attendees loved devouring the delish treats served up by catering and events vendors. Some faves: Bold’s chocolate whoopie pies and orange creamsicle truffles, Three Sisters Catering doughnut dipping bar, Batter Cookie Dough Counter’s egg-free scoops, Loyal Q and Brew brisket, Atlanta Event Centers mini egg roll shooters and caprese skewers, City Barbeque’s mac and cheese bar and LiquidXcream’s nitrogen ice cream. 

4. Exciting Entertainment. Teens got colorful airbrush tattoos from Air Illustrations and competed in popular video games at the Battle & Brew consoles. On camera, families made ShutterBooth slow motion video captures with confetti, made fun photo flip books with Flippity Doo Da Flipbooks and posed in the Robot Booth! At Button it Up, teens were amazed what they could put their pics on (even candy boxes!)

5. Memorable Music. Espeute Productions brought their towering DJ booth that overlooked the ballroom. Amp’d Entertainment’s live remixes were popular with the teens and DJ Neezy showed off new lighting capabilities.

It wasn’t just about the party! Teens also chatted with organizations looking for volunteers and support that they could partner with for Mitzvah projects, and parents found Mitzvah-related Judaica and even clergy to work with for bar mitzvah prep and service arrangements. It truly is one-stop shopping, people!
