Most conventions and conferences only last a couple days but Techweek 2015 is taking it to another level. Techweek 2015 is a weeklong event that brings together 12 different events specifically designed to engage, entertain and energize attendees in new and imaginative ways. At Techweek 2015 you can go from a 2-day technology conference and exposition to a music event, startup competition and so much more. Techweek is uniquely designed to give you tons of opportunities to network, learn and explore with a large tech community.
The Techweek Conference allows you to learn everything you need to know to succeed in the technology industry. You will have the opportunity to listen to hundreds of speakers during panel discussions, engage in experiential workshops, keynote addresses and even small talks by the fireside. The conference contains Q&A sessions with experts at the Knowledge Bar and CEOs speaking on the Summit Stage. At the Techweek Conference, all the biggest topics in the tech world are discussed under one roof.
Expo, Hiring Fair and More!
The Techweek Expo runs Thursday and Friday and showcases the newest products and insights from Fortune 500 companies and nascent startups. Exhibitors will be on hand to present their ideas and plans for the future of the technology world to thousands of Techweek attendees. In addition to that, the Techweek Expo will also feature things like live demonstrations, special giveaways, Q&A sessions and a ton more.
The Hiring Fair is the perfect event for those looking for a job in the technology industry or for developers looking for promising new talent to assist in bringing ideas to life. Techweek’s hiring fair is focused on matching people with jobs that suit them. Employers come from all over to fight over some of the best talent the young tech world has to offer and to find the best data analysts, UI/UX designers, developers and much more.
One week may seem like more than enough time for a convention like this but even the best minds in the business need a little help. Partner events are a main focal point of Techweek 2015 as the convention engages local companies and organizations, asking them to host sessions and events throughout the convention. Local companies from your very own community will be on hand to host education summits, happy hours, Q&A sessions and more.
A lot of conventions and conferences have musical guests but Techweek is one of the few that has an entire musical festival. Future Sound is an event that is focused on the intersection of music and technology. Live electronic and technology-enhanced musical acts are on hand during the Future Sound Music Festival as the final celebration of the week, launching you into the weekend with style. This is a great way to unwind after a long, exciting week at the convention.
The Techweek Grand Tour is a unique interactive tour of the most innovative office spaces in your city. This is a great opportunity to exchange ideas with local executives, take a look at where all the magic happens and learn how company culture is enhanced with technology. Grand Tours of your city provide you with a unique experience that you won’t get anywhere else.
Just as Future Sound merges technology with music, Fashiontech does the same with fashion. The FashionTECH Runway Show brings together the latest in wearable technology, innovative manufacturing and e-commerce brands and also features local tech entrepreneurs who will be modeling the latest in tech and fashion trends.
Launch is one of the premier startup competitions that allows entrepreneurs to face off against each other for $50,000 in cash and prizes. Competitors will showcase their company to attendees and undercover judges and, after a day of presenting, the top 5 will then pitch their startup on the main stage in an attempt to convince a panel of VCs and industry innovators that their startup is ready to be taken into the mainstream.
Hackathon is a 24-hour marathon of developers and hackers in an all-day, all-night frenzy that brings together fun, camaraderie and coding. At the end of the event, each team will have designed and created an entirely new application that will be showcased to the Techweek crowd as well as a panel of judges in the hopes that they will deemed victorious.
Gatherings, Social Events and Unique Experiences!
The gatherings during Techweek are one of the most social of any convention or conference. Networking breakfasts and late-night parties are just the tip of the social iceberg that allows you to relax, grab a drink or something to eat and socialize with fellow convention goers. Techweek brings thousands of people together in some of the greatest locations in each city the convention visits, providing an easy-going, low-pressure atmosphere for networking and socializing.
FTFO is a unique experience for Techweek. Food Trucks are quickly becoming more and more popular and following their whereabouts online is becoming much easier. Local food trucks bring a plethora of culinary styles and flavors to each and every Techweek event and even compete against one another to see who is the best among the world’s leading techies.
Finally, a Private Summit will be featured at Techweek and is a veritable be-all-end-all event for the top executives in the business. The Private Summit is, naturally, an invitation-only event featuring C-Suite executives, VCs and key tech officials in both local and global tech industries. The Private Summit contains roundtable discussions and premiere entertainment, including golf outings and even DJs like Calvin Harris and David Guetta. The Techweek Private Summit is the ultimate destination of the week.
Techweek 2015 is one of the biggest and most in-depth technology conventions of the year and is made even better by the fact that it isn’t just one single week. Techweek 2015 will be taking place in Chicago, Detroit, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Miami and New York, bringing thousands of the world’s top technological minds together in each city.
