Great Coverage of the SOLD OUT, RECORD BREAKING Rooftop Party
Tuesday, August 14th Starting at 5:30pm
The Networking Party of the year is a partnership of SEMpdx, PRSA, AIGA Portland, AMA, CHIFOO (excuse me), NWIAG, OCIABC, OEN, Social Media Club and TAO (formerly SAO)…pretty much all the marketing and technology groups in Portland (and one from Seattle).
It’s basically a big party, outside, in the sun with marketing, advertising and technology peeps…on the Rooftop garage of Hotel deLuxe. The beer is always flowing (and provided by ethology) and I’ve heard there will be even more food this year…ALL FOR ONLY $15! Register here
Whether you are going to just have a good time (which should be had by all), find a job (I know of at least four people that can directly attribute employment to this event), find a client (I can personally vouch for this one), win amazing prizes or drink wine in the corner by yourself, you will not be disappointed.
Sunshine Division Coat Drive
And if that wasn’t enough, we are also hosting a Coat Drive for SEMpdx’s 2012 Charity of Choice The Portland Police Bureau’s Sunshine Division who will be on hand to collect coats for kids in need. I’m sure most of you have at least one coat that you haven’t worn for a really long time that is like new (adult sizes too as lots of kids are as big as you).
Not that you need another reason to help those in need…but…there will also be a “Coat Prize” (like a door prize except you are only entered if you donate a coat). The “Coat Prize” is courtesy of Columbia Sportswear and features two Columbia Sportswear Jackets (men’s and women’s) that the winner will pick up when they get to visit the Columbia Sportswear Employee Store!
There will also be additional regular door prizes for everyone that attends (and drops a biz card) including two passes to SearchFest 2013, two Platinum Seattle Interactive Conference (SIC) passes, an Ogio Kirby Backpack and more!
Lots of Great Sponsors
PSU’s Professional Development Center, ethology, SEOmoz, SyCara, Bonfire Marketing, AMA, Mac’s List and the Portland Digital Marketing Conference will all also be in attendance as event sponsors!
