A Very Notable FFWD Launch Party

Last night we kicked off FFWD: Advertising and Marketing Week the only way we know how – by throwing one hell of a party (if we do say so ourselves). The swank second floor of The Spoke Club was filled with stylish young professionals (YPs) of all kinds. Hands were constantly filled with business cards and high quality drinks alike while a DJ spun the latest beats and YPs stepped in front of the photo screen to let loose a smile or two.

Smooth, velvety Apothic Red was the wine of choice for those looking to indulge in their sophisticated side, which is exactly why we’ve partnered with them to run a cross-country speaker series with them soon (stay tuned for more info). A legendary Mott’s Clamato Ceasar made with Absolut Vodka was ready for anyone willing to reveal their – you guessed it – spicy side. Absolut wasn’t done there, however, introducing the crowd to its Single Estate Handcrafted Elyx Vodka in a highly notable cocktail that also featured Bénédictine, Fino Sherry, and apple bitters. For those simply looking to enjoy a great brew, an iconic green Steam Whistle bottle would do just fine. 

Beyond the music, food, and booze, what really made this a must-attend event was the collection of YPs who showed up. Some of Toronto’s best known PR, marketing, creative, financial, communications, and accounting professionals as well as a handful of fresh-faced newbies still working their way through Humber PR. Add in the sweet scents of Yves Saint Laurent (Manifesto for the ladies, La Nuit de l`Homme for the gents) being freely handed out and this party literally smelled like success. 

So thanks to everyone who came out last night and made Notable’s Young Professionals’ FFWD Opening Night Party the must-attend event that it was! We can’t wait for the rest of the week – not to mention how excited we are to throw another party in a few months celebrating Notable.ca’s 5-Year Anniversary!
