Heart Marks the Spot: Heart Technologies Celebrates Oktoberfest

Heart Technologies Employees at East Peoria Chamber Oktoberfest ExpoOn Thursday, October 1, Heart Technologies joined the East Peoria Chamber of Commerce for their Business Expo, called Oktoberfest, at Par-A-Dice Hotel in East Peoria. This year’s theme was “X Marks the Spot,” and in true Heart fashion, we went all out to create a fun, interactive booth to show visitors that we’re “‘Hook’ed on Technology.”


Guests were lead to the Heart Technologies booth via Heart logos on the ground. Our booth, themed after the pirates of “Peter Pan,” our employees donned Peter Pan hats while Lance Lelm, Heart’s CEO, stood in as our very own Captain Hook. The booth featured a television display, treasure chests, Apple Repair coupons, and treasure maps that led guests to other booths to receive special prizes. Visitors also could enter to win a Visa gift card courtesy of Heart Technologies.


The employees of Heart Technologies had a great time networking and mingling with Oktoberfest visitors and other local vendors. Our festive Peter Pan hats could be found throughout the venue, and even a few guests joined in on the fun with their own Peter Pan hats! Our team may not have won first place, but we did receive the gold star, an impromptu “award” for our effort and enthusiasm.
