Tickets to film festivals around the country are becoming more coveted and sought after every year. As event professionals, we asked ourselves, “What are these film festivals doing right?” Turns out it’s a lot! We sat down with the folks from the Napa Valley Film Festival, Marc and Brenda Lhormer, to learn more.

From The Blog
Event professionals are used to covering lots of miles by foot on show day, but Hood to Coast is on another level.
Opus remains one of the 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in the United States for the third straight year.
Opus is a full-service marketing agency. As such, we consider each and every member of the Opus team to have a direct hand in marketing. Every point of contact with customers, prospects, and partners presents an opportunity to further our brand. We take pride in the quantity and quality of our communication—no matter the medium—which makes it even more important for our writing to be strong and free of errors. To that end, Opus sends out weekly “Friday Grammar Notes” with the aim of raising the bar of the written word across the entire agency. Our notes should provide utility to everyone, whether you’re a fledgling scribbler or a confirmed word nerd.
This month we discuss lose-loose situations, say what needs saying about gerunds, and remind you that less is more (but sometimes it’s fewer).
Building a brand depends on every point of contact that each employee has with customers, prospects, and partners. And despite being experts within respective disciplines, everyone is still occasionally bedeviled by a common high school nemesis: GRAMMAR! To help with the challenge, Opus sends out weekly “Friday Grammar Notes,” addressing misspellings, misuses, and misnomers in everyday communication. This quickly became the source of much dialogue around the proverbial water cooler, so we decided to make it a recurring feature on our blog. We hope you find it as useful as we do!
This month we delve into the disappearing hyphen, exposed a few events-related misspellings, clarified some compound nouns (and the verbs that form them), and laid down the law on clichés worth deleting.
One major question that faces any event marketer at the outset of the planning process: how do I fill these seats?
Event registrants and final attendees are probably one of the key performance indicators (KPIs) that you’re using to track the success of your event. Do you feel like you’ve got a lot of questions and not a lot of answers? You’re in luck: this e-book will help you assemble the ideal audience for your next event.
