Our Lifestyles Teams were charged with creating several different Appliance Bundles for Moviegazoo's "Spotlight" Event. Each brand was assigned a $75,000 Budget. And while more than 250,000 people signed up to be a part of this year's "Spotlight" Cooking Team, we selected 100 members from our 2017 list and 600 from this year's list. We then used a rotating system that allowed each member to interact with each brand and help prepare and serve the meals.
With more than 30,000 members attending our event over a 2-day period we didn't want to use a single menu. Therefore, we pulled a number of recipes from several websites and then allowed "Spotlight" Cooking Teams to shape our menus. While our event was based on more than 10 different Main Courses, our Lifestyles Teams were able to perfectly match the Wine and Spirit Products with the final menus." Stated Vince Charles Moulterie II, Founder and Chief Designer of 2BLIKEu and Moviegazoo.

"This event took us more than 12 months to map out; go through the feedback, selecting the right Locations, Chefs, Wine, Spirits and Appliances. And updating our Chef Rotating System so that each person on a Cooking Team would have input in planning, preparing and serving.
Each environment we created allowed 2BLIKEu and Moviegazoo VIP Members to taste an element of a 3 Course Meal in real time. And while 50% of our "Buy Rating" is based on the equipment and the Chef's Experience, the other 50% is based on taste! Beautiful chaos in planning multi Appetizers, Main Courses and Desserts. And at the end of each event, Jenn-Air Pro-Style Suites that Our Lifestyles Team put together received the highest "Buy Rating" and the most onsite Purchase Requests. More than $20 million worth of Luxury Appliances were sold during Moviegazoo's "Spotlight" event. And plans for next year's event will get underway at the end of the month." said Joanne G. Whaley, Senior Vice President of Content and Spotlight Events.
