That is exactly what we have done for The Maxim Party 2017,” says Dylan Marer, CEO / Executive Producer of Karma International. “We designed The Maxim Party production to be the ultimate interactive sight and sound experience, with renowned talent, great music, swanky ultra-lounges, an exciting location, and most importantly, the “right” people to include great brands and tastemakers such as Bud Light, Monster Energy, and a special tastemaker this year. We are proud to announce that The Maxim Party has garnered the support of Mr. Thomas J. Henry, one of the top, go-to personal-injury attorneys in the country and major philanthropist, Mr. Henry, is no stranger to the events scene, having thrown many successful multimillion-dollar, celebrity attended parties. As a producer, I could not be more proud to align with such great people and brands to produce The Maxim Party 2017 with the winning formula that will ensure our number one party status.”
We will have many great activations and interactive areas including the Monster Energy FMX Motorcycle Show and the Monster Energy Lounge with energy drinks to keep the attendees hyped throughout the course of the entertaining affair. America’s favorite beer, and the official beer of the NFL, Bud Light, will be offering refreshing beverages for all guests to enjoy.
