Mr. Skin’s 8th Annual Soiree Set to Coincide With Chicago XBIZ Summit 2011

CHICAGO — Among the many special events planned for Chicago XBIZ Summit 2011, attendees will be treated to a swelter season blowout on the rooftop of Mr. Skin’s headquarters in the trendy Wicker Park neighborhood.

Following a full schedule of networking, seminars on day two of the three day leading digital media conference, the evening of Saturday, June 11 brings XBIZ Summit attendees to the rooftop of “Skin Central” for a night that will feature music by world-class DJs Pretty Paul from The Standard Los Angeles and DJ Topspeed from Hot 96.3 Indianapolis.

Mr. Skin’s eighth annual Summer Soiree also will feature an all-night open bar at three outdoor drink stations and food catered by the hottest and most prestigious restaurants in the area.

Entertainment zones, including a Rock Band room and gaming areas — as well as big-screen TVs playing Mr. Skin Productions all night — also will entertain guests throughout the night.

“What better way to welcome attendees of the first-ever Chicago XBIZ Summit than with our annual summertime bash,” Mr. Skin’s Director of Business Development Sam Rakowski said. “Every year our Summer Soiree brings together cool crowds for an unforgettable night of music, cocktails and sexy surprises. Mr. Skin is pleased to host this year’s edition, which will bring together industry colleagues for an event not to be missed.”
