Breakfast Panel: Virtual Reality

October 27, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am


Virtual Reality

Our Speakers


Cyler Pennington

Content Director

R&R Partners

Cyler knows the right medium is a critical part of the message in the frequently changing social media environment. As corporate director of engagement of R&R Partners’ social media team, his guidance in driving our digital marketing team in developing a steady stream of innovative social media strategies and implementation tactics for a diverse mix of R&R clients is nothing short of incredible.

Successfully building brand affinity and awareness through insightful content creation and community management, Cyler leads his team in creating highly effective social and digital native content strategies for highly visible clients that include the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, MGM Resorts International, Aristocrat Gaming and Barrick Gold, among others. His work creating native content with high-level media properties such as Vice and Saveur, and leading alpha/beta partnerships with Google, Twitter, and Facebook for LVCVA has helped solidified their profile and raised the approval quotient among key influencers in the social space.

Cyler came to R&R from SBE Entertainment where he managed the launch of five nightlife venues’ interactive marketing profiles along with social media efforts for the luxury boutique SLS Las Vegas. Prior to that he served as Internet marketing specialist at Caesars Entertainment executing paid social and digital media strategies for a number of its resort properties.

An outdoorsman at heart, Cyler grew up in Oregon and Montana and is always up for an adventure. It could be the reason he chose to get married in Africa. Or why he loves camping, skiing and watching Oregon Ducks football – which is an adventure in itself.
