APN Outdoor Turn up the Heat for ‘Friends in High Places’

New Zealand, February 2, 2011- APN Outdoor today announced it will be holding an exclusive outdoor Summer Party, the first in a series of ‘Friend’s in High places’ (FIHP) networking events scheduled for 2011.

APN Outdoor’s Summer Party, the third in sequence since the launch of FIHP in June 2010, will be held within the grounds of Mecca Stonehouse in Mission Bay on Thursday the 24th of February.

Kicking off at 5pm with a red carpet call, the Summer Party will also feature an exclusive outdoor concert by some of New Zealand’s biggest musical acts. Guests will be treated to live performances from indie rockers Clap Clap Riot, drum and bass duo State of Mind, and funk/reggae sensations Tahuna Breaks.

To date, more than 400 clients and partners attended the launch of ‘Friends in High Places’ in June 2010 featuring Dane Rumble, and hundreds joined in to check out the winner of Advertising’s Next Top Model last September.

Phil Clemas, General Manager, APN Outdoor said:

“Developing and nurturing business relationships are crucial to the success of any business. For APN Outdoor, the ‘Friends in High Places’ program provides a creative platform to bring together our partners and clients in a social capacity that everyone can enjoy and benefit from.

“We hope this Summer Party will be yet another great opportunity to reconnect with what has become a large network of ‘Friends in High Places”.

Invitations to APN Outdoor’s FIHP Summer Party are currently being distributed. All invitees must RSVP through before February 17 to attend.

In line with the Summer Party theme, guests are also being invited to upload their favourite summer pictures via the FIHP website for a chance to win. All nominated summer shots will be rotated on a large screen during the night and winners of the best pictures will be announced following the event, via APN outdoor’s Facebook page -!/pages/APN-Outdoor-NZ/115097388528467

The top ten images will each win a ‘Summer Pack’ courtesy of Lion Breweries and the best summer shot of all will also receive a luxury weekend away for two to Waikehe Island - all entrants must be invitees and be over 18 years of age.

Phil Clemas, General Manager APN Outdoor said:

“Summer and the outdoors go hand in hand, so we encourage all entrants to upload the kind of images that capture their favourite open-air experiences - just keep it PG folks!”
