annual >play Conference (http://www.playconference.org/
) is coming up in only 4 days, and the Bay is buzzing with excitement. Fantastic speakers, an amazing Expo, exciting Rocket Pitches, and a great Career Fair to come!
However, this year we thought it would be great if >play attendees would have a chance to meet each other before the Conference. So this year for the first time, we decided to hold a pre >play VIP Kickoff Event to allow for this opportunity.
Yesterday evening, over 150 >play volunteers, DMEC alums, panelists, and Conference attendees descended upon KickLabs, a San Francisco-based technology and online media incubator, to host a one-of-a-kind event to kickoff >play 2010 with a bang. Product managers, venture capitalists, and CEOs of top digital media firms from around the Bay, along with several Berkeley Haas MBAs, had the chance to interact with one another before the Conference – to eat, drink, and of course talk about the hottest topics in the world of digital media!
This was a first-time event for us, but we really enjoyed ourselves and the chance to talk with many of the >play attendees before the big day on Saturday…and we hope you did too!
Thank you to KickLabs, our >play sponsors, and of course everyone who came out on Saturday! Only 4 days ‘til it’s time to >play!
