IMAVEX Lands in Houston
Live blogging powered by IMAVEX.
One thing that got me excited about this trip to Trinity, Texas was the live blog concept. I will be in Texas for a few days, and while I'm here I will be recalling this trip in the blog. This is my excuse to not only have fun and research the site of the 2011 The Spirit International Amateur Golf Championship, but also to chronicle this as the week passes by.
IMAVEX will be providing an online marketing solution for The Spirit International, but will also be live streaming the event this November. So no better place to start than the beginning.
Scheduling the Trip
We were already in Trinity once this year. I knew I needed more time here. This place is too pretty for only a couple of days.
The Spirit will take place at Whispering Pines Golf Club, and will play host to 80 players representing 20 countries from around the world. Players will arrive on October 31st for a week full of activities. The golf really plays a small role compared to the relationships that will be built this fall.
Past players agree; The Spirit is an event that they won't soon forget. Some of the best players in the world will be here competing. They will all stay at Camp Olympia and will interact with each other for a week in international fun.
This is a gorgeous facility and will be a true test to all those who tee it up in November. When we were making our way through the course a few weeks ago, I stopped and asked Peter Dennis about the possibility of returning once more before The Spirit. He agreed, we booked the flight, and here I am.
Getting to Houston
Living in Indianapolis, getting to Houston isn't an issue. I flew out of the Indianapolis International Airport. Players, some who are already living in the United States, may fly through IND. Especially those who live on the east coast. The airport is notorious for being a stopping point for flights from Maine, New York, and Washington DC. Chicago is also a popular choice, but Indy even offers flights to Chicago, Illinois leaving all day long nearly every day of the week.
Once in Houston, I grabbed a rental car and head to The Woodlands, where I will be staying for the duration of this trip. The Woodlands is a great place, and serves as an easy place to rest between Houston and Trinity. Trinity is located 90 miles north of Houston.
Board Meeting Presentation
During my trip, I will be doing more than just researching the golf course. I will also be attending and presenting at World Health & Golf Association board meeting. I've come prepared to speak on all that we are doing and what the deliverable are for the event.
Just to give you a taste, I have been and will be posting content on the following online brand management solutions:
As you can see, we are busy pushing content all over the World Wide Web.
Streaming the Event
IMAVEX has plenty of experience live streaming events. From board meetings to college graduations, to rock concerts and more we (STREAMOTOR is a service powered by IMAVEX) are extremely confident in our ability to provide a seamless HD stream.
If you are curious what an HD stream looks like, nearly all of the major events on the PGA Tour are streamed. The Masters is a prime example of what we will be providing. Several people from WebStream and STREAMOTOR will be on-site for The Spirit to provide this coverage.
I will be covering the event similar to how I am covering this trip, by posting tons of unique valuable content.
Stay tuned for more information from IMAVEX and The Spirit over the coming weeks. Let's make this event even better than the last for all of these amateur players.
*All players will be sent an HD flip video camera, along with scripts for each player to follow. These personalized videos will be valuable not only to the website but also to search engines as well as to overall audience enjoyment. Videos will be posted on the website, as well as YouTube and several other social media outlets.
**As of Wednesday, August 24th, 2011 Facebook Places no longer exists.
