Help Plan PTW19 made this evident, as over 120 Philadelphians gathered at WeWork last week to share their ideas for involvement in the weeklong celebration of tech and innovation.
Representing media companies, event venues, game studios and more, 45 attendees stepped up to the mic to give their #PTW19 pitch. With a minute on the clock, each individual painted a vivid picture of their desired participation in the week. Esports, content creation and cyber security were a few hot topics of the night — not to mention that collaboration was in the air, which allowed for magical new partnerships to sprout.
