selling Los Angeles

Wed Dec 01, 2010 00:00

Dear Rhizomers,

I used to follow follow Rhizome very closely about seven or eight years ago and always wish the very best for the community.

I work for LA INC. The Los Angeles Convention and Visitors Bureau, a nonprofit Destination Marketing Organization for the city of Los Angeles. And there is a project that I think will be funded (about $5,000) in December. I am not sure if its the kind of thing that the community would be interested in but wanted to share.

I work in the Sales Department and our job is to bring large conventions to Los Angeles and we compete against other major US cities. Currently, we have a 50 page bid book that we give to prospective clients that tells them all about LA and why they should bring their business to LA. But not all aspects of the bid book are given to every client. We would like to create an online/interactive version of this bid book.

If you are interested then please email me and I will send you the bid book's table of contents and a map that we would really like to improve. The map is downtown Los Angeles and it shows the hotels in relation to the Los Angeles Convention Center. Its functional but not that impressive.

Since we submit well over 500 bids a year ... the section specifically related to the client (client logo, pricing, incentive offer, etc.) must be easy to edit by sales directors with limited tech skills.

You may have to sign a confidentiality agreement. Still checking on that ...

If you are interested in pursuing this project then think mainstream designs. Our target audience is meeting planners and may not appreciate the subtleties of net.art. We will have images and videos that you can use.

Here is something I saw recently that I liked but please don't let this restrict your creativity. http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=interactive-12-events

We are accepting proposals through December 1, 2010 and estimate that the budget will be about $5,000

"Digg"ing Rhizome's Artbase

I have not followed the RAW list in awhile so it is possible others have already discussed doing this. However, if not, I thought it would be a great idea if some of Rhizome's superusers/editors started digging their favorite art objects and then posting those diggs in raw, rare and net art news ... and encouraging others in the community to digg them as well. If it worked, I think it would benefit both the artist and Rhizome.

I think I read somewhere that it only takes like 30 or 40 "Digg"ers to get an article onto Digg's front page.

just a thought
