Webgrrls, Wix, Attentive.ly, and Naked Grape...were the lineup for the NYC Webgrrls wine tasting event, hosted at Wix Lounge, sponsored by Attentive.ly and featuring The Naked Grape wines.
NYC Webgrrls Summer Wine and Networking kicked off Wednesday, July 17 with an evening of wine tasting and networking at the Wix Lounge's s brand new location on West 23rd Street. Wix Lounge is a free co-working and event space open to freelancers, artists, entrepreneurs and others on a first-come first-serve basis weekdays 9am-5pm. Walk in, plug in, and get to work! It was the perfect location with room to mingle and enjoy some amazing wine.
Webgrrls entrepreneurs, designers, techies and others in the tech industry were treated to a tasty sampling of The Naked Grape wines, a California-based company brought their fresh and fruit-forward table wines - four whites and four reds - included a Summer White Blend, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Moscato, Malbec, Pinot Noir, Harvest Red Blend and a Cabernet Sauvignon. Shay Broderick of The Naked Grape introduced the company and offered a toast also pointing out that, in addition to their bottles, The Naked Grape sells their wines in "fridge-friendly" boxes that are also great for outdoor spaces. Learn more about Naked Grape and their delicious wines at www.thenakedgrapewine.com.
Our raffle prizes were a huge hit. Attentive.ly, a subscription-based social media marketing tool, offered two one-year subscriptions to their service. Webgrrls Events Coordinator Paulina Podbiello demonstrated how Attentive.ly can dramatically improve your return on investment in email and social media by identifying the influencers on your email list and turning them into "brand evangelists". It also shows you what your influencers are buzzing about across various social media. Our two lucky winners were Christine O'Dea who won the raffle and Jessica Perilla who tweeted the most during the event.
It was another amazing event, with amazing people, amazing prizes, and amazing wine...yummy
We hope everyone enjoyed the event and made great connections with each other! We're taking August off, see you at our next tech discussion and networking event in September.
