This was my fourth year attending the Dad 2.0 Summit as a Best Buy Brand Ambassador. It is an honor to work with such an amazing company, and it is extra special to be able to represent them at this important conference . For the sake of further disclosure, I am about to get even more effusive as Best Buy pulls out all the stops and takes care of the dads in many incredible ways, from flying drones offsite, to celebrity meet and greets, to exceptional contests throughout the conference. Best Buy is an active participant in the conference and helps to enhance the overall experience for all the dads, each and every year!
It all starts before the conference when we arrive early in the afternoon to fly drones at an offsite location that the incredible Best Buy crew has found. This video is from the drone’s view!
There is always plenty of food, and since we were in New Orleans, there was a food truck on hand with delicious local dishes. And we also happened to be at a site that housed an abandoned power plant. An abandoned power plant that was interesting enough to be the site where several shows film, and also some movies such as the new Terminator movie! It is interesting enough that there are actual tours! And one dad gets to win a drone by posting their experience on social media!
Part of my time was taken by experiencing the various products in the Best Buy booth, from the XboxOneX, to the Microsoft Surface, while listening to Bose headphones and watching the incredible colors on the LGUS 4K OLED TV!
Best Buy also hosts various sweepstakes for the attendees to enter and win, folks can tweet to win by showcasing the various tech items in the suite. What a great way to support the attendees, and keep things exciting!
This year there was an extra treat. Von Miller of the Denver Broncos was a speaker at the conference, and also part of this years Best Buy experience! Click here for the Facebook live with Von and Best Buy. We ended with a meet and greet for some of the attendees, and me!
Once again, Best Buy out did themselves as a sponsor at the Dad 2.0 Summit by providing some amazing experiences for the attendees, while showcasing the great products you can purchase at Best Buy, in-store or on-line. I am honored to be part of their team.
Disclosure: Best Buy hosted me as an attendee at the Summit.
