Werking IT on New Years with #INQNYE

Normally when you are asked to work New Years Eve you are hesitant to say the least. Well not in my case. I have been working on an awesome contest for INQ Mobile for a few months now. The facebook contest was designed to create online buzz and excitement … and that, we did! The idea was to connect with some of Canada’s most notorious and popular bloggers, hook them up with the HOT new INQ 3G chat phone and take them on a epic VIP weekend even Lady Gaga would be jealous of. (Sorry Gaga)

We asked the public and INQ fans to join and “like” the INQ Canada facebook page, upload their most legendary party pics and get their online crew to vote, vote, and vote again. There was much excitement on facebook and twitter about this campaign thought the month that it ran, (you can have a gander by checking out the #INQNYE hashtag). We promoted the contest online with the help from our awesome bloggers, and my personal friends Raymi and Casie Stewart. (Those two Rocked my socks continuously all weekend)

Once the votes were i,n and we had our party crew, it was time to get’er done! Off to Montreal we Fly via Porter (my Favorite airline), picked up by escalade limo’s to chauffer the crew around in style and bring us to our boutique hotel. We had two nights stay at the luxurious and trendy W Hotel Montreal along with a all expenses paid shopping spree (for the contest winners and bloggers) at Style Exchange. After picking out our New Years Outfits we followed up by hair and makeup at a cool downtown salon. The Pièce de résistance for me was the amazing breakfast, lunch, and dinner at some of Montreal’s finest hot spots.

The night of we partied like rock stars to a fully loaded VIP experience at a cool and exclusive club. Bottle service and burlesque was the theme of the night. The dancers were awesome and the staff were great. Everything went off without a hitch. Here are some pics from our awesome #INQNYE experience.

I want to also say, not only how awesome my team was (Monika Rola is the best thing since sliced bread) But also how truly awesome Porter Airlines was to me. I tweeted a problem I had and they replayed to me within 15 minutes and called me within 30. I am truly impressed with there social media PR peeps and will continue my ongoing and never ending love for their simple yet elegant brand. Thanks Porter!
