If you attended last year’s kickoff at Dilworth Park, you know it shouldn’t be missed. If you didn’t? Well, let’s just say the video games and interactive tech exhibits got more attention than the beer garden. And in Philly, that’s really saying something.
Standouts were Hive76 and their giant Connect Four, Crossfire and mysterious orange man. Another crowd favorite was the Department of Making + Doing (RIP) bringing back a childhood favorite with a life-size Spirograph.
Last year was fun (pics below), but this year is going to be better.
Philly Tech Week 2016 presented by Comcast is right around the corner and we’re back at Dilworth Park to kick off #PTW16 in style. Mark your calendar for Friday, April 29, and invite your friends and family to celebrate local technology and innovation. (Rain date, fyi, is April 30.)
We’ll have print magazines, T-shirts, food, drinks and the handiwork of 30+ local innovators on display.
These groups have already signed on to participate:
- Abington Art Center
- Camden Segal
- Cipher Prime
- Entrepreneurial Game Studio
- Ghost Crab Games
- Grimm Bros.
- IGV Studios
- Paisley Games
- Polyscape Games
- Quadratron Games
- Semag Studio
We’re still looking for other groups to bring out interactive and fun stuff for attendees to play with. Fill out our Demo Form to be considered.
