2008 Media Mash-Up Hosts Sell-Out Crowd

Loyalist PR students hosted a sell-out crowd at the 2008 Media Mash-Up presented by Apple last night in the Shark Tank Pub at Loyalist College.

Students, faculty and support staff of the School of Media gathered for an amazing night of live music, food and prizes -- all while mixing and mingling with people from a cross-section of media disciplines.

Special guest Scott Moore, Executive Director of CBC Television Sports shared his experiences from the 2008 Beijing Olympics, as well as the recent footage of the announcement of the new "Hockey Night in Canada" theme song.

Among the evening's live musical acts was Loyalist PR's own Kyle MacKenzie who loosened up the crowd with his talented acoustic performances. Way to go, Kyle!

More behind-the-scenes tasks were carried out by a host of other Loyalist PR students who did everything from managing ticket sales and event set-up to prize table organization and band co-ordination.

Through it all, we learned what it takes to run a great event, and how to work together as a team to achieve optimum results.

Special thanks to lead sponsor Apple, as well as Sony, Japan Camera, Future Shop and Huff Estates who made this event possible.
