Next week we host our annual WHIR networking event in Washington, DC at The Gryphon. The event will be held on Thursday August 22 from 6:00 – 9:00 pm.
This year we’ve partnered with the Internet Infrastructure Coalition (i2Coalition). If you haven’t heard of this organization, now’s the time to learn. As touted on its website, “The Internet Infrastructure Coalition supports those who build the nuts and bolts of the Internet.” That’s you!
Co-founders Christian Dawson and David Snead will be in attendance, and will be available to answer any questions you might have. Dawson will also briefly address the crowd to say a few words about the organization.
There will be plenty of drinks and appetizers, courtesy of our sponsors. The support of these organizations is what makes these events possible. And they’re even giving away some fantastic door prizes:
Platinum sponsor e-onlinedata is giving away a Roku Player
Gold sponsor Litle & Co. is giving away a $150 Visa Gift Card
Gold sponsor Softlayer is giving away a Personalized iPad mini with Wi-Fi 16GB – Black & Slate
Silver sponsor CSC Leasing is giving away a Apple iPod Touch 32GB MP3 player (5th generation-latest model)
If you’re in the DC area, come on out and meet and mingle with your industry peers. These events are all about getting out from behind your computer screen and enjoying face-to-face networking time.
We hope to see you there! Be sure to RSVP and learn more here.
