To willkommen the new year of SMPS in the celebratory spirit of the autumn season, our first Spirits with SMPS-NY on September 16 was an Oktoberfest-themed gathering. SMPS members and friends took over two long tables at Reichenbach Hall, a large Munich-style beer hall where good hefeweizens and pilsners are plentiful, pretzels and wursts are ginormous, and the tapping of fresh kegs is accompanied by great fanfare.

[expand title=”Click here to read more about the event…”]We saw a lot of new faces, including some new and potential new members, mixed in with the familiar faces of current and past Board members and regular SMPS/Spirits event attendees. For the past eight years, SMPS has put together these free Spirits networking events to bring members and non-members together in fun, casual settings. Within the unique Munich-in-Midtown setting of Reichenbach Hall, September’s Spirits event continued the tradition of facilitating new business relationships and friendships among marketers in our industry. Spirits with SMPS get-togethers are now scheduled every other month, usually during the third week of the month. Next up: Monday Night Football on November 17, location TBD. (November’s football theme is American, but it’s okay if you still want to drink German beer. Prost!) [/expand]
