Check Out This Local Philly Tech Week Event

If you fancy yourself a bit on the geeky side (or if you just like learning about how things work while enjoying some fun socializing opportunities!), there’s a week full of events coming your way that will be right up your alley. Philly Tech Week returns May 3-11, with an entire series of interactive learning opportunities across the city, including many right near your 1500 Locust apartment. Philly Tech Week is focused on the exploding tech scene right here in Philly, giving locals the opportunity for a front-row seat to all of the innovation happening in the city. The multiday conference and its many accompanying events are organized into seven tracks—Creative, Access, Development, Civic, Business, Media and Sciences—so there’s something for everyone.

One of the most popular offerings is the Signature Event on May 10. Held from 6:30-10 p.m. at the Sheraton Hotel, just over a mile from your 1500 Locust apartment, this is one of the social highlights of the whole festival—and a great way to close out the week before events wrap up the next day. The event is a fun mix of tech expo and happy hour—so you can learn something while you sip and socialize!

Enjoy an open bar with wine and beer while you try all the latest gadgets and get up close and personal with the innovative solutions being created in Philly. Tech entrepreneurs and all-stars will be on hand with their products, and partiers are encouraged to chat them up to get insider info about the latest breakthroughs in the local tech scene. While the interactive exhibits and food and drinks give you plenty to see and do, the networking opportunities also abound. Most people who attend Philly Tech Week events throughout the week will cap their festival with a stop at the Signature Event, so you’re sure to be rubbing elbows with the best of the best of the Philly tech community.

This innovative festival only rolls around once a year, so don’t miss out on your chance to get in on all the fun!
