Advertising Week – Facebook Generationext Wrap Party

While Advertising Week technically ends on Friday (October 1st), the social scene culminated on Thursday evening with Facebook’s Generationext Wrap Party.  While originally scheduled be held at the Wollman Rink in Central Park, the party was moved (due to weather) to the Roseland Ballroom.

The party started at 9pm and guests were greeted with the Facebook logo everywhere you looked.  Large flatscreen TV’s were showing Facebook trivia with questions such as “How many friends does the average user have?” or “How many hours a week does the average user stay on Facebook?”

Around 10pm, Cirque du Soleil put on a short but amazing performance.  The performers were clearly limited due to a lack of space as compared to the Wollman Rink.

After the performance, the crowd hit the dance floor as Kanye West’s ‘Good Life” invigorated the good looking advertising elite.  From the tasty appetizers to the Facebook cookies, the event was well run and some good clean fun.  It was a tremendous way to close out a week of thoroughly enjoyable panels and events.
