Big Events USA was founded by Ken Rochon and Sam Natello. The 2 extremely good looking guys (they made me write that) met at a conference called CEO Space in Las Vegas many years ago. A friendship grew over the months as they found themselves at some of the same conferences from Las Vegas to Philadelphia and Orlando.
The 2 entrepreneurs had each been in business over 20 years in very different industries, each running successful companies.
Ken runs The Umbrella Syndicate where he and his team travel around the country taking photos at events. Their differentiator and where they are absolute wizards is that they then work their magic on social media channels to bring traffic, attention, and awareness to these events in ways that are truly impressive.
Sam runs DotCom Global Media, a full-service website design and digital marketing agency. Having worked with dozens of the top brands in the world and top influencers in hundreds of industries, Sam attends top events from coast to coast speaking, teaching, listening and learning … always learning.
Initially, neither saw any real opportunity to work together in a meaningful way and simply nurtured a friendship and enjoyed the conversation and exchange of ideas with a fellow businessman in the digital / event space.
At The Digital Footprint Conference in Philadelphia, Ken was taking photos, as usual. He was also working on his hilarious Photo-Bombing book, which has since been released. Sam was about to be introduced on-stage in front of a large audience. Ken threw out a “hey, I’ve got an idea”, idea. He asked Sam to consider making a Photobomb face as he was being introduced. As you can see by the photo to the right, the rest was history!
Ken claims this is his favorite photo ever but more importantly, it demonstrated a trusting selfless relationship that the two had developed.
Some events and seminars and conferences are awesome. Let's be real, some suck. Some were worth every penny and some felt like a sleazy "pitch-fest" where it feels like everyone is just trying to get into your pocket. Have you experienced this also?
The knowledge and personal growth we achieve by attending great events is awesome. However, some events are just a waste of our time and money… and they steal time away from our families, our lives, and our businesses. Has this happened to you?
We bet is has!… and THAT is why Big Events USA was created.
We didn't want to waste our time and we don't want you to waste yours!
We want to change the world by amplifying YOUR greatness!
By helping you "play" ONLY at the Top 1% Events, we help you save time and money while increasing your effectiveness.
Our mission is simply to change the world by bringing Top 1% people together at Top 1% events.
If you do, we should work together! Let’s figure out how we can:
Over 20 years ago, I founded DotCom, a full service digital agency based in New Jersey. I have had the awesome pleasure of working with many of the top brands in the world and in the process, working alongside of some of the best and brightest people on Earth.
My mission is to make the world a better place by amplifying the greatness of others. By far, the best way I have found to do that is through my partnership with Ken and the rest of the Big Events team. We are poised to change the world and I am thrilled to be along for the ride.
It's a BIG idea that will disrupt an entire industry.
I am an international author and speaker with over twenty books in the market place. I co-founded The Umbrella Syndicate and I am the President of PerfectPublishing.com.
I have traveled to over 100 countries attending some of the biggest international events. For years, I have recognized a number of significant problems which impact events, speakers, event organizers, and the attendees of these events. Over the past 10 years, I have been developing the solution.
… and here it is!
