Bar Vdara Mixer

(04/19/2012)

While Hugh Grant didn’t make an appearance this time, the April 19th Mixer was yet another well-attended networking function. Held at Bar Vdara, the outdoor venue was an excellent choice to enjoy the pleasant mid-80s Las Vegas weather. The surroundings — sophisticated yet playful — set the tone for the evening.  Guests couldn’t resist trying out the whimsical swings or even sitting on the froufrou silver chairs that reminded me of bejeweled ladies’ shoes. People at the bar could easily see the famous CityCenter “Big Edge” sculpture. The popular Bar Vdara appetizers included Thai-style shrimp wraps with pomelo, peanuts and sweet chili mayo; and vegetable samosas with chutney. Divine! Adding to the experience were the fancy trays and carriers.

During this event, attendees added Twitter handles to their name badges and included a favorite topic under “Ask me about [fill in the blank].” What a fun ice-breaker!

The interactive marketing community of Vegas arrived by 7pm and packed Bar Vdara. With the perfect weather, most stayed outdoors to mingle with first-time attendees, old friends and former co-workers. Big smiles all around! And yes, these interactive folks did not fail to check in on Foursquare or tweet about #lvima.

Another big hit that evening was the iSnap kiosk, set up especially for the event. Thanks to Rick Williams of SocialKiosk. With iSnap, guests took snapshots and instantly shared them via e-mail, Facebook, or Twitter.

As the event came to a close, a lucky winner received two tickets behind home plate to a Los Angeles Dodgers game PLUS a one night stay at The Standard in downtown L.A. (This door prize courtesy of ThinkRealtime).

For those who didnโ€™t make it to this LVIMA mixer, we certainly missed you! To those who have yet to attend a LVIMA get-together: we sure hope to see you in our next event.
