Hawkefest is the first event of its kind, providing a unique platform designed for ecommerce executives to come together and generate new ideas that further the success of the industry, while enjoying thrilling entertainment. "Our goal was to bring together the top minds in ecommerce for a day of community building, education and fun that they would never forget. I believe we knocked it out of the park," says Erik Huberman, Founder & CEO at Hawke Media.

The super exclusive one-day summit was held at a warehouse location in Downtown Los Angeles, and attracted over 140 of the best and brightest ecommerce executives that have been integral in the growth of successful companies.

Hawkefest was hosted by Lori Schwartz (Story-Tech) alongside Founder & CEO of Hawke Media, Erik Huberman. The day kicked off with a bang, a leadership session hosted by City Councilman Mike Bonin who Hawke was honored to have on board. An all-star speaker lineup of industry influencers followed: Adam Grablick (Soylent), Andres Izquieta (Five Four Club), Bryan Lalezarian (MeUndies), a Skype session with Miki Agrawal (Thinx), Rich Jun (Bam Ventures), Andy Mackensen and Sean Kelly (SnackNation), Frank Mastronuzzi (Xcellerate Financial), Xander Oxman (Winc), Matt McCall & Chris Thorne (Pritzker Group), Andrew Thomas (SkyBell), and Daniel Broukhim (FabFitFun). In between the speaker breakout sessions, entertainment included a group splatter paint session with artist Luke Lamar, a hip hop dance party, and a special musical performance by Eric Zayne. The day was topped off with happy hour cocktails (with a roaming magician) sponsored by Veev vodka, Nuclear Wines, Gem & Bolt tequila, Health-Ade kombucha, ABK beer, and Bona Fide coffee, and a pre-set seated dinner catered by an award-winning chef at Taste of Gourmet and wine provided by Freedom Wines.

Hawke Media is thrilled with the outcome of the first annual Hawkefest 2017 and plans to announce a date for the second-annual Hawkefest to be held in 2018, later this year. "To say my expectations were exceeded would be a massive understatement," says COO, Tony Delmercado, "I feel fortunate to be a part of bringing together such a wonderful and continuously evolving ecosystem!"

Hawkefest was produced by Hawke Media experiential marketing head, Karolina Swietskovi, who also spearheads similar event marketing initiatives for Hawke clients.
