Want to win a free ticket to Baltimore’s best conferences of the year?
The Technical.ly events team has been working hard to bring you our best ever Media, Dev, Business and Sciences conferences. And we’ve even come up with a few fun ways to get you involved.
First, though, what are these conferences all about?
- Think: Innovation, Biotech, Nanotech, Policy
This BIW track will feature a half-day of free programming at the University of Maryland BioPark. The day will also be supported by 14 West, Kaiser Permanente and Hopkins’ FastForward accelerator program. There will be a curated roundtable discussion, presentations from local science leaders, a networking reception and other programming during the day.
- Think: Digital Marketing, PR, Data Analytics and Social Media
Take notes during panels focused on the future of media that dive into best practices, new and popular tools and platforms and general tips for making your brand stand out from the competition. Stay for case studies from local agencies who will share specific client-success stories so you can learn from their experiences.
- Think: Code, Design, UX and New Technologies
Introductory coding workshops with hot breakfast at Impact Hub (10 E. North Ave.) plus a full afternoon of high-level Dev Talks at The Motor House (120 W. North Ave.). End the day with an all-inclusive happy hour in Graffiti Alley. For detailed descriptions of this year’s topics check this out.
- Think: Entrepreneurship, Business Plans and Pitch Perfection
If you have a business idea, these hands-on, interactive workshops are a great place to start. You will learn how to refine your business plans with feedback that is specific to you. Oh, and our topics are dope af and if you’re a student, you can get in for free by using the code “BIW16student.” Clutch.
