Since 2007 the Austin Tech Happy Hour has been the place for the emerging technology community to relax and network with each other. Come and meet the people you've friended, added, and twittered, discuss current technology innovations, and perhaps even find a candidate to add to your team!
Austin Tech Happy Hour has become the premier networking event for Austin technology professionals to share ideas, insights, and knowledge in a casual and fun environment.
What's happening is a commingling of creatives facilitated by events like AUstin Tech Happy Hour where participants share their new ideas.
If your phone hasn't already reminded you, tonight the W will play host to the April edition of Austin Tech Happy Hour. Starting at 6 p.m. on Thursday, tech-minded people from around the capitol area will be wearing name tags (as they often do), having a drink (as they often do), and meeting some of the people they have friended, added, and maybe squeezed into a hashtag.
The happy hour runs from 6pm - 8pm on the day of the event, although we find that there are still over 100 people at the venue even at 9pm at night. You will have plenty of time to meet our guests.
Each happy hour we feature a small number of emerging technology companies who are allowed to demonstrate beta-level ideas and concetps, and soon-to-be-released products in order to get feedback and exposure to key technology executives.
We have thousands of technology professionals on our mailing list, lots of fans on our Facebook page, and a vast group on LinkedIn that will all see your brand and messaging as a sponsor of the happy hour.
You receive a six foot table and a place to hang a banner right behind your table. Placement is right at the front where all our guests arrive. It's the perfect arrangement to meet and interact with our attendees.
We allow a maximum of two sponsors per event, who are not industry competitors. We strive for balance in the marketing presence of each company when it comes to marketing materials, giveaways, or promotional products at the event.
An exclusive sponsorship gives you the freedom to "make the event your own." We'll work closely with you on those special touches for the event that will make it a unique, branded experience for your company.
