  • events.

    I’ve been lucky enough to work with some of the best
    bartenders in NYC, and thus have produced a wide range
    of events featuring craft cocktails, wine, and the work of
    many incredible chefs.

  • music.

    A drummer of over 20 years, I don’t get play as much as
    I used to, but creating music is one of the most enjoyable
    things I can imagine.

Brian Quinn is Director of Programming for Social Media Week NY, a conference welcoming 10K attendees from the Internet, tech, and media communities each year.

Prior to joining SMW in 2012, Brian produced concerts around the world while managing lauded jazz artists for 10 years. Brian also made his mark in the food and beverage industry after co-founding The Noble Rot, an underground supperclub dubbed “a new form of clandestine drinking” by publications. He also learned the art of craft cocktails and works with some of the best bartenders in New York.

Using his unique skillsets, Brian has produced numerous events and experiences in the tech, beverage, and entertainment worlds, with past clients including AirBnB, GroupMe, Eucerin, Moleskine, Pernod Ricard, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Georges Duboeuf, Michelin Guide, and the James Beard Foundation.
