Well, my friends James Alburger and Penny Abshire are at it again and have just recently announced preliminary information about the next VOICE conference. We do have a bit of time as it does not take place until early June of next year but it may be a good idea to place it in your schedules now. It does cost a few bucks, especially if you are coming from out of town, but it is absolutely worth every penny. I don’t know of one person who I met last year that is not planning on coming next year so it promises to once again be a veritable who’s who of the voiceover industry. It really is THE voiceover event to attend for everyone from newbies to seasoned professionals alike. Word on the street is that even Erik Sheppard himself will be there.1
Taking a “if it aint broke don’t fix it” approach they have decided to once again hold the event in Los Angeles at the same Hyatt Regency Century Plaza as last time. I know all of our readers are class acts and insist on only the best but it is a fairly swanky place so I think you may be able to get by. I highly recommend getting a massage at the attached spa as well. Nice.
Obviously there are going to be an amazing selection of breakout sessions to choose from and enough displays and events to fill up your day but you can learn quite a lot just chatting up some of the other professionals at the bar or the pool and simply enjoy what is certainly our industry’s largest water cooler event.
If you have not attended in the past (I’m looking at you de Nesnera) then please check out the VTP Blog exclusive2 video above cobbled together rather nicely by James from footage taken at VOICE 2008 to give you an idea of what you will be in for. Once you have made the wise choice to attend, head on over to the official site to bookmark it and sign up for updates as more information becomes available.
