If you’ve ever journeyed to Austin, TX during SXSW then you know that the party makes or breaks a good time. It’s the capstone to a great day, weekend, or week. In short, no event is complete without a great party.
And while, on the surface, these parties are a great way to blow off steam and have a few free drinks, it goes deeper. This is prime time to network, connect with new people from out of town, and show that you can be somebody awesome both in and out of ‘startup mode’.
At this year’s Tech Cocktail Celebrate Conference, we’re stacking the roster with some great parties. And in a town like Las Vegas, you never know who might be standing at the bar next to you.
We want to welcome all the startups to Celebrate by hosting a special “Appy Hour” Sunday night at Work in Progress. The event is sponsored by Apptentive, and it’s going to be a relaxing way to ramp up for the host of sessions, startups, and other parties we have in store for our guests.
To cap off day one of the Celebrate Conference, we’ll be hosting a high-energy National Showcase Startup Competition. All of the startups who have won our local Startup Showcases will be pitching for a spot in the final four on day two; the ultimate goal is to be crowned the Nation’s Hottest Showcasing Startup that comes with a $10,000 check.
Sponsored by Khorus, we’ll be enjoying some fast-paced demos at Place on 7th. And we’ll also be enjoying some drinks.
Day two not only decides who the Nation’s Hottest Showcasing Startup is, but also holds in store the closing party for Celebrate. There are going to be special guest DJs, and bluntly speaking, it’s going to be epic.
The rooftop at Inspire Theater will have an open bar for you, and it offers fantastic views of the Fremont East Entertainment District. The part I’m looking forward to the most will definitely be the chance to get up-close and personal with a llama.
