6. Good Ol’ Fashioned Fun

In addition to serving up tons of great resources and stellar networking opportunities, we’re stuffing OfficeNinjas IRL with fun, interactive activities including photobooths from Shutterbooth, a lip-synching party booth courtesy of LeForce Entertainment, and Live Painting with Abel Garcia Designs! So maybe we should call it “new fashioned” fun. Right? Sign up here!

OfficeNinjas10

If there’s one thing we believe with all of our ninja hearts, it’s this: there’s no excuse for crappy swag bags. We don’t tolerate pointless postcards and cheapo junk. Everything in our swag bags is stuff we absolutely love and want to share with you. Sign up here!

It’s a pretty air-tight case for why you should attend, right? If you’re ready to snag your ticket, and the only thing holding you back is the OK from your manager, consider using this handy “permission slip.”

  1. I WISH I was heading out to Dallas! Ninjas that haven’t been to an event yet, YOU MUST. The last event I received discounts and swag from multiple vendors and ended up using a handful of them! Not to mention the massage and wine! LBH, everyone wants a massage and wine, right?!

    1. Wish you could join us in Dallas, Janine! Can’t wait for the next event you can attend!

  2. BOOM SHAKA LAKA!!!! GETTING CLOSER AND WE CAN’T WAIT TO SHOW YOU OUR DALLAS HOSPITALITY!!! XOXOXO

    1. Love your excitement, April!! We’re so excited to rock Dallas!

  3. Hey Office Ninjas!! Bottega Louie here! We absolutely can not WAIT to hang with everyone! We will be sure to bring lots of macarons, chocolates and surprise goodies for everyone to enjoy. Keep us in mind this holiday season as we do ship across the nation. If you are unable to make it to the Dallas event and you are interested in sampling product please contact me directly. I am more than happy to have a long distance love affair with you all!

    1. You’ve said the magic words, Monica! From personal experience, I can say that nothing can compare to your macarons and chocolates!

  4. Still waiting for you guys to come back to NYC :) Its been 2 years … no pressure at all.

    1. No pressure at all, MJ. Ha! Don’t worry, though, we’ve definitely got NYC on our minds!

  5. I attended an event a while ago in NYC. Not only is there swag and munchies along the way, but there are giveaways and I had the chance to learn about companies I had never heard of before, including some demos. I also got to meet and hang with 2 coworkers I had only known online since we all worked in different cities virtually. There is a real sense of connection being with coworkers as well other office ninjas from all over. Everyone has something to offer. Well worth to attend an evening of both information and fun!

    1. That’s just what we’re after, Bobbi-Anne! We love when ninjas connect with others and have a good time while they’re at it!

  6. Who needed ten reasons? GO! You’ll have the time of your life! If everything really is bigger in Texas than this party is going legendary status.

    BTW – The Swag Bag is worth its weight in gold!

    1. Legendary is right! We work hard to make the Swag Bag as awesome as possible, Melissa, so we like to think your description is spot on!

  7. Are there any plans for an event in the Midwest?! Would love to see OfficeNinjas IRL hit Milwaukee or Chicago!!!!

    P.S. Are there any plans to feature an online store where Ninjas can buy the swag bags or t-shirts or other assorted awesomeness that is OfficeNinjas?

    1. Thanks for the suggestions, Emily! Our next OfficeNinjas IRL event isn’t set in stone yet, but we always love knowing where ninjas would like us to go!

      And we’ll keep the idea in mind for OfficeNinjas swag to be made available.

  8. This looks totally GREAT! Can’t wait till #OfficeNinjasIRL hits Seattle!!

    1. I certainly hope that OfficeNinjas does do a shindig in Seattle. …AHEM OfficeNinjas!… We have such a large city area with so many awesome ninjas that I’m sure it would be a fun learning experience worth attending!

      1. Seattle’s on our minds as well, so don’t you worry, Connie and Shawn!

  9. High Profile is so excited to partner with #OfficeNinjasIRL! We can’t wait to mingle with everyone in the marketplace! Everything really is bigger and better in Texas…. and this event is no exception! Can’t wait! #ninjaparty

    1. And we’re super excited to partner with you! #HighProfileRocks

  10. Lots of buzz going on about OfficeNinjas IRL in Dallas and people are getting SO EXCITED to attend this event! You are going to ROCK IT!

    1. Woohoo! That’s what we like to hear, Sunny! We’re so excited to be putting on this event!

  11. It’s all of the above and more. Great way to appreciate and celebrate all we do.
    Thank you OfficeNinjas for making a difference in our ninjas world!

    1. We certainly do what we can, Corinne! We know how amazing all you ninjas are and we want the world to know it!

  12. OMG! I am so frickin excited!!!! This is going to be the BOMB!

    I can’t wait to see Lucky, Have Fun, Get TECHIE, and be with a bunch of wonderful people (but mostly to see LUCKY)!
    #OFFICENINJAS

    1. COUPLE MORE HASHTAGS:

      #NINJALIFE #DFW #TECH

      1. We’re crazy excited, too, April! #AllTheHashtags #WhyWouldYouEverStop #NinjasRock!!

  13. I am stoked about #OfficeNinjasIRL coming to Dallas! I am excited about the Tech Demos. If what I learned at the last gathering is any indication of what will be offered at IRL, we are all in for a treat! I’ll be on the front row! #officeninjasrock

    1. #BrendaRogersRocks!

      Looking forward to your smiling face in the front row!

  14. So much fun! Who doesn’t love networking, prizes, swag bags and photo booths?!

    1. So right, Kat! And you’ll even learn a thing or two to boot!

  15. Yay!! Thanks for hosting this event. The tech aspect of it is so exciting, I’m always looking for tools/apps to help me juggle, streamline & simplify.
    I attended their last event in Plano, I won some cool gifts & met some great people! #Cantwait!

    1. And we can’t wait to see you again, Amy!

      It’s so important for today’s Office Ninjas to be up-to-date with tech tools and we’re happy to help keep you in the loop!

  16. I’m super excited to attend another one of OfficeNinjas’ awesome events!! I’m coming out all the way from San Francisco to experience this event Dallas style! Food, fun, and tech! What more could you want?

    1. Wow, Walla! Now that’s dedication! We’re so excited to have you join us, it’s hard to put into words!

  17. You don’t have to pretend any longer. Don’t pretend to be engaged, when you’re not. Don’t pretend you don’t care, when you do. Don’t pretend that (perhaps) your knowledge and connections are a little stale.

    Invest in YOU. It’s so easy to increase your confidence, knowledge and connections when you’re surrounded by others doing the same.

    All good reason to come out to #OfficeNinjasIRL. Don’t delay — get your ticket now. Bug your fellow admin friends and colleagues. YOU be the reason why the energy increases in your own mind and at the office.

    1. Nailed it, Suzanne! Not only do you get to be yourself and stop pretending, but you get to have an awesome time while you’re at it!
