Madame Tussauds Names Winning Tech Innovator

The public has spoken! After an outpour of public interest, culminating with many nominees publicly promoting their position, Madame Tussauds announced Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple Computers and well-known American Inventor was voted as the next Bay Area’s “Tech Innovator”.

A 64 year-old San Jose native, Steve Wozniak is a Silicon Valley icon and household name for his strides in changing the face of technology. Through his innovative and influential work with Steve Jobs in founding Apple, and various philanthropic ventures, Wozniak was inducted into the Inventors Hall of Fame and was awarded the prestigious Heinz Award for Technology in 2000 among other outstanding achievement awards throughout his career.

The process will begin with Wozniak sitting with a team of Madame Tussauds master sculptors. The sitting takes between 2-3 hours, where more than 250 measurements are taken. The sculpting process takes between 3-4 months for completion.

Wozniak’s figure will be revealed to the public with a side-by-side release sometime in the Fall of 2015.

Taste of Tel-Hi Celebrates 125 Years of Community Support!

The Spritz team was thrilled to support TEL HI’s largest fundraising event for the 2nd year running at the 13th annual Taste of TEL HI. The highly anticipated event kicked off on Friday, May 8 at the iconic San Francisco City Hall. This year was especially noteworthy as the organization was celebrating 125 years of service to the San Francisco community.

The evening began with an elegant cocktail reception under the City Hall rotunda featuring menu previews from top chefs and some of the Bay Area best wines. Our team loved Twenty Five Lusk’s Truffled Mushroom Cheesecake and Scoma’s Crab Louis salad! Sponsors of the event also kept the crowd entertained: attendees could take a picture with Mayor Ed Lee’s wax figure from Madame Tussaud’s and had the chance to win a Celebrity Cruises modern luxury gift basket!

The live auctions, emceed by CBS Foodie Chap Liam Mayclem, took place during the seated dessert course. One of this year’s highly anticipated live auction packages included an exciting Celebrity Cruises European trip for two, which sold for $3,500! We were thrilled to play such an integral role in this year’s event and are looking forward to what 126 years brings!

Google’s Mobile Friendly Update

On Wednesday, Google rolled out a significant change in the way mobile search results are displayed. The update, announced earlier this year on Google’s blog, means that the search engine will now prioritize and boost mobile-friendly sites in mobile search rankings. It’s an essential change due to the amount of people who now use smartphones to conduct searches. According to Smart Insights, 80% of Internet users own and use smartphones to search the Internet.

The update favors mobile-friendly sites to improve overall search user experience. “Now searchers can more easily find high quality and relevant results where text is readable without tapping or zooming, tap targets are spaced appropriately, and the page avoids unplayable content or horizontal scrolling,” the company wrote in its blog. It only affects search rankings for individual pages on mobile devices, but this change applies to searches in all languages and in all countries where Google operates.

The change will most directly affect small business owners who may not be aware that there could be significant decreases in mobile traffic from Google Search. However, websites that aren’t optimized for mobile devices won’t be at a disadvantage completely. Google will still use a variety of signals, such as specific keywords, to rank search results. This means that a page that is not mobile-friendly will still rank high if it contains high quality content and is relevant to the search query. Additionally, once a website become mobile-friendly, Google will automatically re-process the pages.

To determine if your website is mobile-friendly, Google has set up a Mobile-Friendly Test to examine individual pages and a Mobile Usability report in Webmaster Tools to check the status of your entire site.

Welcoming. Entertaining. Inspiring. Three Years and Counting! #SIFF15

The 18th Annual Sonoma International Film Festival (SIFF) kicked off spring from Mar. 25-29, 2015.  Featuring more than 100 selected films from 25 countries, SIFF brought five days of fun, food, and unforgettable world cinema to the heart of wine country.

As SIFF’s proud marketing and creative agency for three consecutive years, Spritz has not only witnessed the the tremendous growth of the festival throughout the years, but also increased our own involvement in supporting and spearheading the event. This year, we invited and hosted more sponsors, partners, media, key influencers and special guests than ever before!

The Opening Night films featured Alan Rickman’s directorial debut film A Little Chaos (starring Rickman himself and Kate Winslet), which was preceded by the Academy Award winning short “Feast,” as well as American independent feature The Week, which was preceded by the Susan Atherton sponsored short, “Artoo in Love.” Although neither Rickman nor Winslet were able to attend SIFF this year, Spritz facilitated a partnership with Madame Tussaud’s San Francisco, who brought Kate Winslet’s detailed figure to the Opening Night Reception. A hit at the festival, the lifelike wax version of Kate stood at the entrance of the Backlot Tent VIP Lounge, and was the star of many star-struck fans and their photoshoots.

Spritz was also proud to invite renowned media guests and fashionistas to the Celebrity Cruises sponsored film screenings of Dior and I. Guests who were lucky enough to gain access to the sold-out film screenings were able to experience a taste of Celebrity Cruises’ signature modern luxury lifestyle with complimentary glasses of Breathless sparkling wine.

We also were delighted to have many returning sponsors, and had the pleasure of introducing a number of new sponsors such as: Emirates Airlines, Where magazine, 7×7, KCBS, Alice Radio, SF Travel, USTA NorCal, and philanthropist Susan Atherton.

To top off the incredible five day event, the entire Spritz team had the pleasure of attending the screening of Dukhtar, a groundbreaking Pakistani movie directed by Afia Nathaniel, which was presented by none other than our own CEO and Co-founder, Raghu Shivaram. We couldn’t have been happier to discover that the film won the Best World Movie Award at the Sunday night Awards Ceremony!

As always, we are extremely honored and proud to support SIFF and we look forward to continue our partnership through the upcoming year-round events, in addition to the 19th Annual Sonoma International Film Festival!
