Don't miss one of the biggest tech events in Portland on Sept 7th.
For one evening, PDX Tech companies open their offices to (tech) crawlers who eat and drink their way from office to office.
It's a great way to learn about all the awesome work happening from tech companies in Portland, check their offices, learn about their job opening and meet their staff.
Last year over 3000 people joined this event. Don't miss the 8th Annual TechCrawl!
There will be information booths, food, and drink in the street for all to enjoy free of charge!
If you would like to join the crawl and receive a map and access to the buildings, you can register at our registration table for $5.
HOW IT WORKS:
Step 1) Get to the Starting Location @ 5pm:
WeWork Custom House (https://www.wework.com/buildings/custom-house--portland--OR?utm_medium=cpc&utm_source=west-marketing&utm_campaign=l-por-techcrawl_meetuppage): 220 NW 8th AvePortland, OR 97209
You must arrive at the starting point location between 5:00 and 5:45 where you will be given your map and stamp for the TechCrawl.
Step 2) Kick-off @ 5:30pm:
Kick-off announcements at the starting location will take place from 5:30 - 5:45. You will receive a map when you check in at the WeWork building. Use that to pick which offices you would like to visit.
Step 3) 2017 Companies on the TechCrawl @ 5:45 pm:
Then keeping it weird Portland style, the TechCrawl is more of a free for all walking open house tour (but TechCrawl sounds so much better...). Offices will be open from 5:45 - 7:45. Have fun crawling and networking your way through the below PDX tech offices:
