“Pure & Shameless” Tech Socials have been attended by many thousands and from all levels of the IT, Healthcare IT & interactive marketing communities representing hundreds of companies from start-up firms to global enterprises. This is not a job seeking event - most attendees are happily employed…just a simple way to help build the local Tech community and started in 1999. Also, no special section where people pay a fee to be around you…really about enhancing the regional tech community.
Attendees have included: CIOs, CMOs, VPs, Private Equity, VCs, Patent Attorneys, Directors, developers, designers, PM/BA/QA, SEO/SEM/Affiliate specialists, CCNAs, DBAs, marketing managers, CEOs, CFOs, CISSPs, engineering students, tech investors, and many others across the IT & interactive marketing field. The entire bar should be filled by our group. There are no fees. Everyone just pays for their own drinks & food! Feel free to forward along to others in IT. Many attendees invite coworkers, their teams for a team-building exercise and even spouses (date night after networking).
Blue Martini - 50% off drinks to 7pm (used to be 8pm but I guess times are getting better), appetizer specials + they normally pass around some free appetizer trays for the crowd.
Dress is casual, bring cards, show off your mobile apps, talk about your SaaS/Cloud efforts, hear about the many groups now focused on start-ups, various technologies, Ignite Tampa, barCamp & Hack-athons/App-athons (We’re a proud sponsor of several events), promote your social media successes, pitch your start-up ideas and be ready to mingle. I’ll be at the front entrance to greet everyone and will be wearing one of my traditional, yellow floral Tommy Bahama shirts.
Still a pretty active full time & contract job market. Please respond and let me know how things are going for you.
