MOBILE BEAT – DECEMBER 2010 – #132 – Showtime

December 6, 2010 by Dan Walsh




It’s December, and as we approach year’s end, we’re getting closer to MB’s big event of the coming year: the Mobile Beat Vegas show, February 1st through 3rd, 2011, at the Riviera Hotel & Casino on the Vegas Strip, with SIX BONUS pre-show seminars on January 31.

Our show is about your show. The ultimate goal of the Mobile Beat Vegas show (and magazine, and summer tour, and websites…) is to assist you in your efforts to create a complete “performance”—from first sales contact to last dance. As we’ve done for the last few years, the latest issue features reading material from several of our seminar speakers, as well as interviews with our scheduled evening entertainers at MBLVXX: where the “XX” stands for the 20th anniversary of Mobile Beat Magazine. To put it a different way: Even if you only come for the party, this is a Mobile Beat Vegas event NOT to be missed.

So, if you’ve never been to a Mobile Beat Vegas event, we invite you to come and have what could very well be a career-changing experience. And if you’re a regular attendee, we look forward to welcoming you back!
