6 Reasons You Should Come to #techprom
If you left it up to us, we would go on for days about all the reasons you should join us at this year's #techprom (Tuesday, March 5th). But this year, we thought we'd bring you some feedback from our sponsors and supporters, who have made each of our events crazy, wonderful fun (oh, yeah, and business networking). Looking for an excuse to attend? Read on:
1. #techprom = DC Cool Innovators at Work
Innovation. It's more than just a word in our slogan. CDT has long championed legislation at the critical edge of innovation. As one of our sponsors put it, "From the companies implementing [issues] to the regulators who are closely following them, great conversation and debate amongst the attendees on the challenges around implementing privacy in the online and mobile landscape today is the highlight of the event."
2. CDT #techprom = Evidence Nerds Do Rule the World.
Our keynote speakers this year are Eileen Donahoe, US Ambassador to the UNHRC at Geneva, and Mitchell Baker, Chairperson of the Mozilla Foundation. Last year, we welcomed Senator Ron Wyden and Brad Burnham, a managing partner of Union Square Ventures, to the podium. From Members of Congress to agency chairmen, ambassadors to tech titans, policy makers to industry leaders, we've got proof to show you that nerds really do rule the world.
3. #techprom = Date Night
Have a significant other that really isn't plugged into the tech scene? Or, does your sweetie work on one side of the fence and you the other? No worries! #techprom allows you to expense that babysitter!
4. #techprom = Where Glasses are Cool and Ties Optional.
Felt like a geek at your own prom? Well, you're in great company. Come celebrate prom the way it was supposed to be celebrated.
5. If you know what ECPA, NSTIC, WCIT, W3C, CISPA, CALEA mean, we're speaking your language at #techprom
Come with your favorite acronym handy, we guarantee you'll find someone who wants nothing more than to sip champagne and discuss the finer points of X, Y and Z.
And last but not least...
6. CDT's #techprom = Best Tech Event of the Year.
(And even better than your high school prom, you don't have to wear a ruffled tuxedo shirt or bring a corsage.)
So grab your best grey, black or navy suit or dress, shine up your black shoes, and head on over to our event page to sign up for the #techprom.
