Duncan Welcomes Prestigious ABBI American Heritage Event This Weekend


Duncan, OK (PRWEB) June 12, 2015

There is no bigger event for 2-year-old bulls than the American Bucking Bull Inc. (ABBI) American Heritage Futurity. With over $ 300,000 paid out last year at the two-day event, the American Heritage is the must-enter event for ABBI stock contractors each season. The winning bull typically takes home a check for about $ 100,000.

American Bucking Bull Inc. is the sister organization to Professional Bull Riders (PBR) and is dedicated to promoting bucking bulls, both by preserving their bloodlines and showcasing their athletic abilities. They have over 170,000 DNA registered bucking cattle and pay out an average of $ 3 million dollars in prize money each season.

There is simply no bigger event for young bucking bulls and were thrilled to be holding it in Duncan, said Executive Director Jay Daugherty. We looked at many cities and arenas before making our selection. This is a big family event for us so all of the activities offered at the Simmons Center, as well as the proximity of the arena to hotels and restaurants, were key factors in our decision. Duncan is a great community and were happy to be here.

This premier annual event has been held in Oklahoma since its inception, but relocated to Duncan this year. Stephens County Fair & Expo Center will host several hundred of these elite animal athletes this weekend. American Heritage events are unique in that they require an animal to be nominated for the competition the year of its birth. Sustaining payments are then made on schedule up until the animal competes in the event.

Futurity bulls buck with a weighted box (called a dummy) on their back for 4 seconds. Half of the animals will buck Friday at 12:30 pm with the second half bucking Saturday starting at 1:30 pm on Saturday. The box is released via remote-control and a team of judges award scores based on the animals performance. A Junior Futurity for American Bucking Bull Inc. members aged 9-18 will also be held Saturday at 10am, with these young cowboys and cowgirls flanking their own bucking bulls in the chutes. There will also be a Derby for 3-year-old bucking bulls. These older bulls will be pitted against cowboys in what will be an adrenaline-charged bull riding that starts at 7pm on Friday and Saturday.

Another highlight of the weekend will be two much anticipated sales. D&H Cattle Co. will be having a yearling bull sale on Thursday at 7:30pm. American Bucking Bull Inc. will hold their Hot Dams Sale (featuring elite females who are the dams or offspring of PBR superstar bulls) on Saturday at 9am. Both will take place at the Stephens County Fair & Expo Center.

“We are excited about bringing the American Heritage to Duncan and showcasing our community,” stated event liaison Jim D. McLain of the TwoBulls Group. “Our goal of bringing major events to Duncan is now becoming a reality through the vision of our County Commissioners in the recent expansion of the Stephens Co. Expo. The cooperative efforts between the Duncan Convention & Visitors Bureau, Stephens County Fair & Expo Center and TwoBulls Group made it possible to being this world-class event to Duncan. With hundreds of stock contractors, their families and bucking bull fans, this event will benefit the city, county and local businesses with a major economic impact.”

2015 marks the 12 year anniversary of American Bucking Bull Inc. (ABBI). Over the last decade, ABBI had established itself as the largest bucking cattle registry in the world. Owned by shareholders, the ABBI has been able to raise the public profile of animal athletes to a whole new level. For more information: AmericanBuckingBull.com

PYM LIVE Events Bring New Event Tech, Design Experiments to Meeting Planners Nationwide


Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) January 29, 2015

Known for its innovative approach to training meeting and event planners, media company Plan Your Meetings will be bringing its PYM LIVE Events to nine U.S. cities in 2015: Atlanta, San Francisco, Chicago, Austin, Raleigh, Dallas, New York, Denver and Houston. Each half-day event provides 1.5 clock hours of education as well as a full spectrum of inspirational event design ideas, hands-on tech play and the opportunity to have one-on-one meetings with sales representatives from leading hotels, destination marketing organizations and other meeting industry suppliers.

What sets PYM LIVE Events apart from other meetings about meetings for event professionals is that we dont lecture attendees on trends and technology and tell them what to think; we give them the opportunity to play with new technology and design formats so they can develop their own real-life solutions and applications based on the live event experience, says Kristi Casey Sanders, PYMs vice president of creative/chief storyteller. We also leverage new tech and trade show formats to help our exhibitors connect with meeting planners in real relaxed, relevant and engaging ways so they can form the most rewarding, long-lasting business relationships possible. Our events are free for qualified meeting planners, but theyre a far cry from traditional hosted buyer shows where the relationship between planner and supplier is commoditized. We think of our events as road shows where we get to introduce local planners to the best people, resources, trends and technology available.

PYM LIVE attendees begin experimenting with new technology from the start: the website and registration pages are powered by mobile app company Topi, which launched both offerings less than a month ago.

Whats brilliant about Topis new website and registration tool is that its tied to your mobile app dashboard, Sanders explains. That means you only have to enter your agenda, event info, and upload your sponsor and exhibitor logos once rather than have to do it on different platforms. Everything is updated on all your marketing channels in real time; its a huge time saver. The event site looks modern, you can track visitor traffic with Google Analytics, and it promotes the conference app to your attendees from the very beginning to increase adoption rates. Our attendees are among Topi registration’s first beta users. Just two weeks into the promotion of our first 2015 event, were already at 80 attendees and they’re telling us they’re thrilled with the user interface and experience.

After registering, attendees are invited to join a Pathable-powered online community where they can research who else is coming, make 1:1 appointments with exhibitors and network with other attendees.

Its exhausting and logistically impossible to meet 40 or 100 people during a four-hour event Sanders says. So it makes sense to extend the life of the event virtually. Onsite, we offer a round of speed-meetings where you get to meet people we think youll benefit from knowing. But Pathable gives our attendees and exhibitors the power to research whom they need to meet and the tools to schedule those meetings before, during or after PYM LIVE.

At the event, attendees will play with CatchBox, a throwable microphone for icebreakers and interactive Q&As that’s making its stateside debut. There will be beacons, also powered by Topi. And to help attendees mentally and physically transition from one phase of the event to the next, X bytes on-demand video fitness breaks from Exercise Bytes will be featured.

X bytes by far was the most successful experiment we conducted last year,” Sanders says. “We’re excited to show people their newest videos because they’re powerful reminders of how important it is to take care of yourself and the needs of your attendees.

Hilton Garden Inn Atlanta Airport North Installs Event Module with FlyteBoard for Guest Information


CHICAGO, IL (PRWEB) November 05, 2014

The Hilton Garden Inn Atlanta Airport North is adjacent to ATL, the busiest airport in the world. To make guests travel experience as graceful as possible, the property tapped Flyte Systems to add its Event Module to the hotels FlyteBoard real-time airline schedule display for cost-effective property announcements and travel information on one display. Flyte Systems is the leading provider of cost effective airport travel information displays and digital signage content for the hospitality, digital signage, and convention center industries and related businesses. Click here to request information on Flyte Systems’ airport travel and guest information services.

About 80 percent of our guests come through Atlanta Hartsfield International Airport. The best service we can provide is to simplify their travel experience and make their stay with us more pleasant, said Shawna Smalling, Sales Manager for the 174-room Hilton Garden Inn Atlanta Airport North. Flyte Systems real-time flight information is valuable and now we have property events, meeting listings, and wayfinding on one combined display. All the information a guest needs for business and to confirm their travel plans is in one place. The propertys combined Event display and FlyteBoard also shows national Doppler radar and is used by meeting planners to welcome VIPs and group members.

Flyte Systems customized our FlyteBoard with special font sizes for Event Module meeting announcements and where we positioned weather graphics on the display, Smalling said. The Event Management Portal makes it easy for me to publish our events, update meeting room assignments, and welcome groups. Flyte Systems training was excellent. FlyteBoard is the only full service flight information display solution that provides subscription-based real-time flight departure information.

Assistant General Manager Valera Franklin said, We often see guests checking flights out of Atlanta on the FlyteBoard. They like it because they dont have to use their computer or mobile app to verify if their flight is on time. Plus, it is not uncommon to have departing guests extend their stay if they see their flight is cancelled.

Scott Triphahn, Flyte Systems vice president said, Many properties with FlyteBoard displays are adding our Event Module to combine property guest services and travel information. Our online Event Management Portal makes it very easy to update information and the display is more attractive than a standard reader board. We use property photos and rotating backgrounds to make the display interesting and informative.

Flyte Systems provides real-time flight information

Flyte Systems offers a suite of products that serve the traveling public: FlyteBoard, FlytePass, FlyteChannel, FlyteTouch, FlytePad with handheld mobile airline information, and Event Module.

PEARL RIVER, NY (PRWEB) November 13, 2014

Seasoned hospitality executives Frank ODea and Greg Dodge engaged Pearl River, NYs Superior Technology Solutions to design and create the scheduling application Schedule Cloud by One Touch. The scheduling tool, rolled out in September 2013, was built to meet to meet the growing needs of the hospitality industry.

One year later, Schedule Cloud is actively used by over 3,000 staff members for hospitality giants such as Restaurant Associates, Wolfgang Puck and Universal Studios in a multi-city roll-out including New York, Los Angeles, Boston and Washington DC. Given the success of Schedule Cloud, ODea and Dodge are already planning next steps for the platform. One year out, were turning a profit, and growingvery positive for a start-up, says co-founder Dodge.

ODea explains that, since each Schedule Cloud customer requires some level of customization, their high-touch relationship with Superior Technology has been imperative. Superior has made tweaks for us on a dimequickly and efficiently, and weve never had to worry about something not working. That could be a killer when we have large companies counting on us to organize their workforce at all hours.

Superior Technology President John Luludis shares, the Superior Technology team is proud to have spearheaded the creation of Schedule Cloud, and we are thrilled that the market has responded positively to the application. We understand the timely nature of the hospitality industry, and continue to work hard to deliver the updates and customizations needed by the One Touch team as their footprint expands.

Created in response to a continual rise in labor costs and shrinking profits, Schedule Cloud saves time in managing a part-time workforce, streamlines operations and maximizes profits. The tool allows employees to directly interface with the application; by entering their availability, users are matched with upcoming events, and after scheduling, administrators and employees both have access to electronic employee time sheets. The competitively-priced software is based on number of users versus the traditional transaction pricing model, and it can be used on the enterprise level or for smaller caterers.

ODea explains, Among a number of projects right now, we are customizing the program for a staffing company with the help of Superior Technology. Really, its use is limitless in regards to schedule management.

Schedule-Cloud offers role-based access for administrators and managers. The tool is leased with a monthly fee, which can be cancelled at any time. In addition, Schedule Cloud offers users a free trial period. Superior Technology is already working on many new enhancements for the mobile version of the application.
