The latest at The Nyman Group

Monday, November 19th, 2012

Greetings to all of you – just wanted to share some of the happenings for us at The Nyman Group.

 

Robert has continued his writing for Hotel Interactive, crafting another piece, titled, ‘Four More Years’ which was recently published online.  Click here for the full article.  If you have any thoughts or opinions, we know he’d love to hear from you, so feel free to send him a note here as well.

 

The last quarter of 2012 has proved to be quite an exciting one for CAN Media and Craig.  Most recently he was hired as Head of Music & Live Performances for Aurelian Marketing Group’s, Life Is Beautiful Festival, a two-day event planned for the Fall of 2013 in Downtown Las Vegas. Additional partners in Life Is Beautiful include Another Planet Entertainment, Downtown Project and MAKTUB Marketing.  CAN Media was also retained by spirits company William Grant & Sons to handle PR in Nevada.  The portfolio of spirits includes Glenfiddich, The Balvenie, Milagro Tequila, Stolichnaya, Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum, Hendricks Gin.  Craig also completed a successful entertainment consulting opportunity with The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas Entertainment Team serving as the interview talent for Sunset Sessions, a three-day music event of up-and-coming bands and musicians.

 

Recently, Corey launched the Sunday Feast Dinner Series with his good friend Chef Geno Bernardo and creating ‘Labor Wines & Local Swine’ for the inaugural event.  Held on Sunday, November 4th, the dinner was a fantastic experience held at The Palms Resort & Casino in Las Vegas at Geno’s restaurant, Nove Italiano.  Check out the blog post and photos from the event here on the Labor Wines website.

As well, Corey just received some fantastic press in Vegas Rated, a national magazine that is based in Las Vegas in regard to his 2010 Pinot Noir.  Their digital edition can be found here and the spread is on pages 56 & 57.  The wine has been receiving great support overall, especially in Vegas at restaurants on the Strip and some local specialty shops.

 

We look forward to having a chance to catch up with each and every one of you hopefully before the holidays, either in person or over the phone.  Hope that you have a very happy Thanksgiving with your family – enjoy the time together!
