I just registered for – and paid for – TECH cocktail 11 on Thursday, August 6, 2009 at John Barleycorn in Chicago’s Wrigleyville section. Note I highlighted “paid for” as this had up to now been a free event. When I went to register I didn’t realize it was no longer complimentary admission.
And you know what I say to that? It’s about time!
TECH cocktail (TC) is where I have met many people I consider everything from friends to colleagues in Chicago. It brought out the best of the city’s tech and creative communities. As word got out of their success – not to mention open bar – they got more and more crowded. It has been harder to have conversations with people, let alone get to the tables of the presenters and sponsors. By charging a nominal amount and no longer having an open bar (you get 2 drink tickets with admission) I am sure it will keep away some people, and my gut feeling is those are people you would want to keep away! All things considered, I have no doubts TC will still be a lively and successful event.
Will I see you on the 6th?Announcements • Business • Technology • (0) Comments • Permalink
