ADOTAS — Walking into the lobby of the New World Stages facility on West 50th in Manhattan on Tuesday night, I was taken aback. Not often have I gone to digital media events in theatrical venues, but then again this is New York, the home theater and some of the most creative party-throwers in the world. I was ushered downstairs, past the posters and swag for the currently running shows where I could hear the hum and laughter of the mixer I was attending — the Get Digital Social Media Networking Event.
The event was hosted by Shelly Palmer and Jeff Pulver who are known for hosting MediaBytes and founding pulver.com respectively. Both incredibly smart and charismatic entrepreneurs made the event a success with an intimate yet accessible setting, stocked spirits and the attraction of a VIP dinner close-by afterwards. I became acquainted with a diverse group of people including marketing industry pros and newcomers, advertising and various media entrepreneurs and even a director of television commercials. It was absolutely a well-received, fun and beneficial evening. I highly recommend any future events put on by this team.
