#4 Experience OdySea Aquarium, the largest Aquarium in the Southwest!

This year’s Spectrum Awards will be held at the Southwest’s largest Aquarium – OdySea. Attendees will have access to the aquarium’s lower level filled with amazing sea life. If you’ve never been to OdySea Aquarium, Spectrum Awards is a great reason to attend and sight-see.

Located off the 101 and Via de Ventura next to Butterfly Wonderland, it is a prime location with easy access.

#5 Get up close and personal with our special animal guests.

We’re honored to have the support of OdySea Aquarium for our upcoming Spectrum Awards. They are graciously sponsoring an animal encounter, a once-in-a-lifetime experience to get up close and personal with a  furry friend. If you’ve always wanted to see exotic animals up close then Spectrum is a MUST attend.

#6 Help build your personal brand at one of the best Phoenix marketing events of the season.

Over the summer here in Phoenix, marketing events tend to taper off until the fall. It’s hot after all, and who wants to network in business attire when it’s 120 degrees out?

The Spectrum Awards are a great way to help build your personal brand, network and meet other marketing professionals. It’s also an opportune time to solicit marketing business, hand out cards and close deals.

#7 Escape the office and have fun with like-minded professionals. Break out of your comfort zone!

How often do you get to have fun with your colleagues or industry friends? Probably not often enough. The Spectrum Awards are a great excuse to escape the office and socialize! Have fun with other like-minded folks and break out of your comfort zone by attending and meeting the industry’s best and brightest professionals.

#8 Vibe off the energy of like-minded marketers.

There’s nothing like being surrounded by good energy. It can be a sustaining force to last you for weeks and weeks after a powerful experience. The Spectrum Awards will give you a chance to vibe off other marketers and explore new ideas. Added benefit? You’ll experience the peaceful and serene ambiance that OdySea Aquarium has to offer.
