Verizon Wireless returned as a sponsor for the 2014 Essence Festival.
To culminate the 20th year of the festival in New Orleans, Verizon Wireless had an interactive booth activation at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center where festival attendees could explore technology, dance to live music, participate in celebrity meet-and-greets with Kim Burrell, Tank, Jazmine Sullivan, Kem, Erica Campbell, Sanaa Lathan, Regina Hall, Lance Gross, Y’Anna Crawley and others!
At the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, Verizon Wireless hosted a Superlounge that included performances by Naughty By Nature, Liv Warfield, Day 26, Sebastian Mikael, Jagged Edge, Kevin Ross, 112 and Big Sam’s Funky Nation.
Verizon Wireless also hosted a private dinner in New Orleans at the Essence Festival at iconic local restaurant Dooky Chase’s.
Dinner guests Hall and Gross spoke about Verizon’s Potential of Us campaign and shared their must-have smartphone apps.
Verizon gifted dinner guests with its Verizon 4G LTE Ellipsis Jetpack Mobile Hotspot with a one-year service plan so guests could be wifi accessible at any time.
