On Feb. 1st at Manhattan’s R Bar, 150 influential entrepreneurs and seasoned industry leaders enjoyed complimentary cocktails from Patrón Spirits during an inspiring evening of high-impact networking and insightful conversation. Hosted by GuyRilla Marketing Group™, the free networking event was geared towards professionals wanting to know more about successful marketing to men 18-34.
The discussion panel featured Daymond John, founder of FUBU and star of ABC’s Shark Tank. Joining him was Michael Hermann, president of licensing and brand management agency Wicked Cow Entertainment, whose clients have included Nortorious BIG, Wiffle Ball, Big League Chew, and Jenna Jameson; Eric Simon, founder of a Las Vegas fantasy-football extravaganza Superdraft and former magazine publishing executive for Maxim and Blender Magazines; and Scott Debson, partner at boutique lifestyle marketing agency SA Studios that serves top brands including Nike, Microsoft and MetroPCS.
Three Patrón-based cocktails were specifically created for guests. And to raise donations for Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, a raffle drawing featured a pair of ‘Rob G.’ Rollerblade skates (tagged by artist Alex Soto), and tickets to the Broadway show Lombardi.
“At GuyRilla, our mission is education, insights, and opportunities for companies targeting the billion-dollar ‘Guy’ market. We’re thrilled that with Patrón’s help this event delivered exactly what we promised,” said GuyRilla’s founder, Doug Schulkin. He added, “We look forward to hosting several more networking experiences this year, including one at Invesco Field in Denver, and another at Baltimore’s Power Plant Live.”
In addition to such in-person networking events, GuyRilla’s online community includes top professionals from companies such as College Humor, Gander Mountain, AskMen, and Inside Lacrosse.
