Get Ready to Party Like It’s 1989 at Fusion 2012

Leg warmers and day-glo leopard prints probably aren’t on your normal conference “to-pack” list. But the social event at this year’s Fusion is a celebration of all things ’80s – skinny ties, big hair and all the spandex unitards you can wedge into your carry-on.

Concur is hosting all-out Totally Awesome '80s Party featuring The Spazmatics – the same band who rocked your tube socks off last year. The event will be held at the Hard Rock Live Orlando on Thursday, May 10 from 7 to 11 p.m. Don’t forget to pack your camera next to your parachute pants – you never know which 80s pop icons might be wandering around the party!

Prizes for “Best Costume” will be decided by your peers. You could win a $50, $100 or $200 Hard Rock gift card, not to mention Fusion bragging rights. If you’ve happened to misplace your eye shadow palate in “purple rain,” don’t worry – we’ll have ’80s hair and make-up specialists on hand to help with your makeover for the event.
