Last night The WHIR hosted its first event in New York in 5 years, and we were so glad to be back to host a dynamic crowd of attendees including technology providers, financial firms, retailers, and entertainment companies at the 40/40 Club.
The technology scene in New York has exploded since we last hosted a WHIR Networking Event in the city, and the range of attendees certainly spoke to this trend. We also had a completely unplanned guest appearance by New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith, for all you sports fans out there. WHIR Events are definitely the place to be if you are serious about networking!
Thanks to our amazing sponsors, we were happy to give out four prizes to lucky attendees. Here are the winners:
- Al Caplan of HTC USA won a Roku SE courtesy of Softlayer, an IBM Company
- Gerard Hiner of Webair won a Yoga tablet from Lenovo
- Rachel Field of PromoSuite won a Samsung VR headset from LiquidWeb
- Eric Goldman of Credit Suisse won Radware‘s prize of a $100 AMEX gift card
Also, thanks to iMiller Public Relations our guests arrived safely in Ubers!
If you missed us last night, we are stopping in Chicago next month so be sure to RSVP today if you will be in the area on June 23, 2016. And after that we will be hosting our third annual WHIR Event at HostingCon Global 2016. This one is a can’t-miss event that you will definitely want to reserve your spot at ASAP!

I’ll be at the next couple of events so please say hi! One of my favorite parts of any event is meeting our readers face-to-face.
