[insert-author-info] SMPS Westchester Affiliate celebrated the long awaited warmth of Spring with the first Spirits of 2016. We gathered at Ron Blacks Beer Hall in White Plains, just a short walk from the train station for NYC commuters. The sun poured into the airy upstairs where local marketers relaxed and chatted over delicious appetizers and cocktails. With our Spirits launching as a “bring a friend” theme, our section quickly filled with a representation of many trades throughout the industry. Along with catching up, we shared current marketing and business development successes and challenges. It was a wonderful evening to meet new people and reconnect with colleagues. Hope to see you at our next SMPS Westchester Spirits!
