What a great time last week. The Blackhawks celebrated victory with a downtown rally, onlookers observed Fourth of July fireworks everywhere, and Techweek Chicago 2013 ended with a grand finale.
This was our first year attending and exhibiting at Techweek Chicago, and it will not be our last. The conference covers ground breaking technology innovations evolving in Chicago and the Midwest.
Our participation allowed us to review the latest trends, check out the competition and communicate with our customers, as well as gain some new ones.
The best part of working our booth was having the chance to interact with the attendees, and spread the word that using Steadfast is a great alternative for Cloud and Infrastructure Management. In addition, it was especially exciting because we were able to showcase our new branding on our booth and sales materials. Our new website Steadfast.net launched just in time. We felt we had bragging rights given our new revolutionary Service Builder.
As an added incentive to increase awareness, we held a raffle for Two- $100 Lettuce Entertain You Gift certificates and Five- $50 free cloud services. Congratulations to all of our winners: $100 Dinner Gift Card –ShiftGig, Ronin Capital. $50 Free Cloud Services-Risk Management Services, Inc, Sphere Consulting, Topstep Trader, Health Care Digital Solution, emailXL.com.
Thanks for stopping by our booth!
The energy flowed all three days at the conference. Even with the Blackhawks rally on Friday, it was still crowded. Mayor Emanuel walked around greeting people, and even stopped by our booth. There were parties galore every night, as well as a Food-Truck Face-Off and the Launch start-up competition. They even had beer pong tournaments.
TechWeek brings in over 8,000 people for a three day innovation conference and technology expo, with over 500 speakers. Attendees can learn about spanning technology, design and media, and entrepreneurship.
We were so excited to be a part of such a huge technology event, and can’t wait to participate again next year. See you then.
