919 Marketing, a top ten Triangle marketing and public relations consulting firm, and Lofts at Lakeview, the area’s most urban, upscale residential rental community, are going to hosting the first ever Local Tech Wire Social this Thursday, Oct. 27 from 5-7 p.m.

“The Local Tech Wire Social is designed to link communities,” says Rick Smith, managing editor of Local Tech Wire. “The idea behind The Social is to create an environment where people outside the ‘tech community’ can meet, greet and discuss business — and to dine, have an evening of entertainment, or perhaps to look for a new place to live, such as Lofts at Lakeview.”

Holly Springs-based 919 Marketing partnered with Lofts at Lakeview and Local Tech Wire to kick off the new networking series.

“We are excited to be a part of the first Local Tech Wire Social,” says David Chapman, CEO of 919 Marketing. “By uniting Triangle professionals from many different industries, the Social will provide a platform for building powerful and longstanding networks. Furthermore, Lofts at Lakeview is one of the trendiest venues in the Triangle for business and networking activities. It is the perfect location to set the tone for many Local Tech Wire Socials to come.”

Lofts at Lakeview is metropolitan living at its finest, and Local Tech Wire Social is the perfect opportunity for Triangle professionals to tour the property and see for themselves what all the buzz is about. Residents at Lofts at Lakeview indulge in the luxuries typically offered at a high-end resort. The amenities, not found anywhere else in the Triangle, include valet dry cleaning, grocery delivery, an outdoor aqua lounge, fire pit and two pools. Lofts at Lakeview, located at 2626 Erwin Road in Durham, is the first project of the new Lakeview area in Durham to break ground and open its doors to the public.
