Attendees Crawl the Hall with Zane Lamprey at the CNP Expo

May 22, 2013

CNP Expo In a bit of a departure from the usual payments trade show fare, the CNP Expo last night hosted an exhibit hall networking event with a twist. Entertainer Zane Lamprey, the host of comedy drinking shows Three Sheets and Drinking Made Easy , was the emcee of the CNP Expo’s Exhibit Hall Crawl. Lamprey visited each and every booth in the exhibit hall giving exhibitors a chance to make a quick pitch to the audience and to share the spotlight as he engaged in some fun back-and-forth.

Lamprey partnered with the CNP Expo to provide entertainment for attendees, but also he used the event as a launching pad for his own brand of rum. Monkey Rum was available at the event in two signature drinks created especially for the CNP Expo: The Monkey Mojito and The Spiced Monkey.

For 90 minutes, Lamprey canvassed the expo floor telling stories and zinging exhibitors with one-liners all while giving them an opportunity to promote their companies in a way they most likely never have before.

In addition to his comedy and television work, Lamprey is an e-commerce merchant himself. As an adjunct of his shows, he began selling Drinking Made Easy merchandise online. The site has grown significantly since its launch and Lamprey is involved in every aspect of its operation.

Nor did last night’s event end his involvement with the 2013 CNP Expo. Owing to his use of social media as a promotional tool for his e-commerce site, Lamprey is appearing as a panelist in a session called Selling on the Social Web: How to be BFFs with Your Customers.
