This post was written by Mike Lizun, Senior Vice President
There was a time, not that long ago, that Philadelphia was only known for its cheesesteaks, infamous sports fans, and the city’s mark on early American history. But an amazing transformation is occurring throughout the region.
Whereas Philadelphia-based companies once had to look elsewhere for their tech needs, the city now boasts technology companies providing some of the most interesting and advanced tech that is being used by both national and international players. Companies ranging from start-ups to bigger, established names are leading the way and putting Philly on the map as a growing and exciting tech community. And if there is one event that captures the city’s evolution, it’s Philly Tech Week 2013.
As the Philadelphia region’s leading technology-focused public relations firm, Gregory FCA is proud to announce its sponsorship of Philly Tech Week 2013. The week-long celebration has experienced exponential growth since its inception in 2011, and we are thrilled to be a part of it. The event is running between April 20 and April 27, and individual events will be held at a variety of businesses, organizations, and educational institutions in and surrounding the Philadelphia area.
Gregory FCA staffers will be attending a wide variety of events throughout the week as we seek to put our ears to the ground, engage the city’s tech leaders and trailblazers, and support Philly’s next generation of tech innovators. If you’re attending any of the week’s events, be sure to look out for us and feel free to say hi, as we’ll be trying to meet as many people as we can.
Philly Tech Week was started by Technically Philly, a news site that is doing a great job of covering the Philly tech scene.
