WALNUT CREEK, Ca. – PIVOT Agency held the second edition of its annual NBA Summer League Party on July 7th at the Waldorf Astoria in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The party serves as an opportunity for those in attendance of NBA Summer League to relax, play some games, enjoy good food and cocktails, and connect with industry peers. The party also serves as a celebration of PIVOT’s continued growth and expansion of its travel and hospitality services.

“NBA Summer League is the perfect time to bring everyone together, as it’s the only time all year that the entire NBA community is in one city,” said PIVOT Founder and CEO, Ben Shapiro. “Our travel division organizes travel for three of the NBA teams, and it’s not often we get to be with our clients when they are on the road, so we have to take advantage of that opportunity.”

“Having all of our NBA clients in one city is a once-in-a-year luxury that we have,” said Travis Wade, PIvOT Travel Vice President. “This weekend and this party serves as an opportunity for us to visit with our clients, our peers in the industry and get the entire PIVOT group together, which doesn’t happen often with our busy schedules.”

NBA clients for the PIVOT travel division include the LA Clippers, San Antonio Spurs and the Brooklyn Nets.

Sponsors for the party included Mueller Sports Medicine, who showcased their wide range of products at the event, Sepio Capital and Hope & Grace, a California-based winery who supplied the wine for the night.
