Last year a Twitter phenomenon swept through InfoComm like the common cold through a first grade classroom. Except the #avselfie didn’t make (most) people sick; it was an uplifting, community-building experience. The brainchild of the gang over at AVNation, the #avselfie trend caused hundreds of InfoComm attendees to whip out their phones and take selfies during the show. Many of those photos, tagged #avselfie on Twitter, ended up in a music video which was premiered on the show’s last day. Already this year, it is the third highest trending hashtag related to InfoComm.

Some of us at Draper participated in the #avselfie, so when it was announced that #avselfie would be returning to #InfoComm15, we wondered how we might capitalize on the trend, and have a little fun.

Thus was born the #DraperPro #avselfie contest.

Draper_ProAmong the many things Draper is talking about with #InfoComm15 attendees is our Pro Portal, and we thought the #DraperPro #avselfie contest would be a great way to promote it. The Draper Pro Portal provides access to all of Draper’s online tools for AV professionals—from our Surface Selector Pro to electronic price lists, status updates, and more—in one convenient place. Draper’s Pro Portal is open to all AV professionals: not only Draper Dealers, but architects, consultants, contractors, designers, installers, retailers, and end users can register. In addition to price lists and the popular and powerful Projection Planner, the Pro Portal also includes a Projector Lift Selector Tool, configuration tools for Draper’s modular StageScreen and FocalPoint screens, and our Resource Library of documents, Images and Brochures. What else could you want? Definitely worth crowing about!

So here’s how the contest works. Stop in at Booth 3413—no registration is required. Find one of our sweet #DraperPro Video Conferencing Backgrounds. Stand in front of it. Take your #avselfie and post it using the hashtag #DraperPro via Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or Google+, and we’ll enter you to win one of five $100 gift cards. Yes, it’s that easy!

But wait, as the old Ronco commercials used to say. There’s more!

Pro_2For every additional #avselfie you take in our booth with one of our products you’ll get another entry in the contest! This way you can get up to five extra entries, six in all! Just post them with the hashtag #DraperPro and you’re entered!

Also, to help your chances of being in the final #avselfie video, be sure to use that #avselfie hashtag as well!

So stop by #InfoComm15 booth 3415 and get your #DraperPro #avselfie on!
