VANCOUVER, Dec. 1, 2007 – Urban Mixer launches Urban Mixer TV and Urban Mixer Auto on Monday, December 10th, 2007.

On Monday, December 10th, 2007, Urban Mixer will launch two new services to the public:

  • Urban Mixer TV video and audio podcasts featuring a roundup of the week’s events available at www.urbanmixer.com every Monday with host Sharad Khare and special guests.

“We’re very pleased to add Mr Sharad Khare to the team,” said Raj Taneja, Urban Mixer’s President, “he brings us a great deal of television experience with his current role as host and VJ for Asian Connections TV on Shaw Cable.”

“With Urban Mixer TV’s online format in both video and audio, Sharad is the best fit for the current role as host,” concluded Taneja.

  • Urban Mixer Auto featuring a review of new vehicles as they are provided by sponsors with columnist Michael Schratter, the 24hrs news ‘Out On the Town’ social reporter.

Since 2004, Urban Mixer has brought its audience information about all the great places to go out in the city. With the number of gala events which occur in Urban Mixer’s target cities on a regular basis, the Company believes that the reader should also be prepared to arrive in style.

“Urban Mixer Auto is about cutting through all the marketing jargon and the professional reviewer’s likely biased take on vehicles and giving the audience a real impression about a luxury vehicle from a regular guy,” stated Taneja.

As new vehicles are tested, a review with photos will be posted by Michael Schratter on the Urban Mixer blog.

Social media Guru and President of the Urban Mixer, Raj Taneja, dubs his membership-based social organization as the cure for the common social life. Reaching over 15,000 young urban professionals with a targeted weekly e-newsletter, Urban Mixer combines the city’s most comprehensive events calendar with coverage on the hottest happenings in town and even hosts their own brand of social soirée. Busy urban professionals can get the scoop on all the In places to go Out.

TRUNK gallery and Urban Mixer to host “Urban Mixer Gallery Series II” for Ottawa-based artist, Heidi Conrod, on Thursday, November 8th, 2007

VANCOUVER, Oct. 10, 2007 – Urban Mixer and TRUNK gallery present Heidi Conrod, the Ottawa-based artist who has been raising eyebrows with her collection of natural and unpredictable art.

On Thursday, November 8th, 2007, from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m., TRUNK gallery, located at 1755 West Third Avenue, will host an opening reception with the artist in attendance, featuring Conrod’s newest suite of paintings titled Landscapes. Tickets are $25 and may be purchased online at www.urbanmixer.com. Partial proceeds both from the sale of tickets and the sale of art on the evening of the event will go to UNICEF’s Unite for Children, Unite Against AIDS campaign.

Social media Guru and President of the Urban Mixer, Raj Taneja, dubs his membership-based social organization as the cure for the common social life. Reaching over 10,000 Vancouverites via a targeted weekly e-newsletter, Urban Mixer combines the city’s most comprehensive events calendar with coverage on the hottest happenings in town and even hosts their own brand of social soirée. Busy urban professionals can get the scoop on all the In places to go Out.

TRUNK gallery, established in 2007 and contained by the auto/ONE showroom, will hold this must-attend event. The Gallery features original, two-dimensional artworks in a variety of media including painting, photography, mixed media and works on paper. TRUNK gallery is Vancouver’s one-stop shop for fine art and Ferraris.

Featured artist, Heidi Conrod, is the creator of paintings based on remembered landscapes. Viewers are engaged in a state between reality and fantasy as the texture of oil, wax and glaze create depth and unexpected layers. In this sense, the landscapes are more internal than external in their use of mediation on memory and distance.

UNICEF of British Columbia and Urban Mixer have teamed up to raise funds and awareness for the Unite for Children, Unite Against AIDS campaign. The UNICEF campaign is a global initiative that responds to the lack of attention given to the needs of children and adolescents within the context of the AIDS pandemic. In Canada, the goal is to raise funds for UNICEF’s work while fostering corporate social responsibility, encouraging increased pediatric AIDS research and development, and advocating for an elevated commitment to affected children by the Canadian government.
