SpoCom Anaheim 2013 – Part 1 of 2

2013 was the 2nd year we exhibited at SpoCom and this year was bonkers. I’m not sure if it was the headline guests such as, Tera Patrick or Nina Mercedez, perhaps it was Dannie Riel. The hall was packed and there was a line… outside – waiting to enter, YES! Usually we are a bit busy inside setting up so I never had the opportunity to venture outside before the opening.

What I do love about SpoCom is the interaction we have with our supporters, it seems like SpoCom is the type of event that they can come up and talk about whatever, for a long time, sort of like a SEMA but on a consumer level. The fact that it is indoors is also one of the biggest advantages for SpoCom.

Our call time was 8AM-10AM, we showed up respectfully around 9AM after running countless errands before hand. We met with Tricia at the gate and was quickly swifted away. It literally took less than 2 mins before we were inside the venue. Set up took us about an hour so myself, Jae, and Scottie had ample time before the 4PM event. Since it was also Scottie’s birthday, we chose to go to Downtown Disney and have lunch at ESPN Zone. After lunch we had time to spare so I charged up the game card and proceeded to kick Jae’s and Scotties’ asses in Hoops, oh and hockey. You can see a video of it on our instagram (@instadayuum).

Anyways, back to the event.

SpoCom_2013-8257Once the doors opened it was a rush of people. We were placed in-between both the two model lounges and HIN City so we are definitely not complaining about our spot! Hot cars and women.. Shesh…

SpoCom_2013-8267One guest that was insane was Dannie Riel, oh my goodness, I had no idea that girl single handedly controlled the lines. Not to say the others didn’t have a huge fan base, but no one had a line that extended 150ft – at all times – throughout the whole night. I still can’t wrap my head around it. Perhaps it’s her limited appearance in So Cal since she is from Canada, but still… DaYUUM, it was nuts.

I did manage to sneak out of the booth a few times to snap shots, but it was extremely difficult. I had to wait towards the end of the event before I could get some without a foot or leg in the picture, but even then it was tough. I will cover part 1 of SpoCom as Jae will continue with Part 2 with the girls.

SpoCom is an event we try to attend every year, the staff is awesome and it’s drama free. SpoCom was never a confusion of where a vendor’s booth is located and how to get there, it’s simply flows perfect. KUDOS to the staff.

Let’s take a look at some of the cool rides.
