During the past 2 weeks we received some very interesting videos from those wanting to stay in the CON*tourage Suite. Those wanting to enter the contest to try and win a space were asked to submit a short YouTube video introducting themselves to CON*tourage and also explain why they wanted to stay in the coolest, most happenin’ space in the Hyatt. Overall we received 12 video entries. We’d like to thank each and everyone one of you who took the time to film, upload and then share it with us. Unfortunately, we could only pick 1-3 people. And…unfortunately…we also promised all that submitted videos that we wouldn’t publish them online
Michael and Lauren, based out of Atlanta, GA were choosen as the lucky winners! Their video was very informative, with both telling us their geek-related hobbies and why they love coming to Dragon*Con. They also were very enthusiastic about helping with party set-up and meeting new people which we can gaurantee will happen Another part of their video that helped win points with us is that they said they tend to wander around the Con…looking for people they know and to meet new people…which is the main reason CON*tourage was founded back in 2008. We wanted to give like-minded creative geeks an outlet and place to find friends at Cons that they’d feel comfortable with and return in the future. And of course to party with.
So…CON*grats to Michael and Lauren for securing the coveted spot in the CON*tourage Suite for Dragon*Con 2012. All of the CON*tourage CRUE looks forward to meeting you both in just over a month! Below is a screen grab from the YouTube the couple submitted.
