Early-bird ticket rates end this Wednesday for the GeekWire Summit, our biggest event of the year and the premier technology conference in the Pacific Northwest. Don’t snooze, purchase your tickets today here before prices go up.

Summit 2016 300x600 - White (1)This year’s Summit is shaping up to be our biggest yet, with a fabulous lineup of speakers, interactive demos, parties and, yes, another fresh round of our fabulously funny Geeky Kids Videos! We will also be kicking off our Geeks Give Back campaign in conjunction with Summit presenting sponsor Bank of America, which raises money for the Washington State Opportunity Scholarship, a unique scholarship that supports the next-generation of scientists, engineers and researchers in Washington state.

Our goal with the Summit is to discuss what’s next in the innovation economy, while also creating strong and lasting bonds between those who attend.

We also like to mix in fun and excitement, and a few off-the-wall surprises.

Beyond that, we also believe that Seattle deserves a world-class tech conference with top-notch business leaders who can make news and provide insights into the tech economy.

Confirmed speakers so far this year include Expedia CEO Dara Khosrowshahi; the head of DARPA, Arati Prabhakar; Microsoft EVP Peggy Johnson; Airbnb board member Jeff Jordan of Andreessen Horowitz; OfferUp CEO Nick Huzar; and the CEO of Juno Therapeutics, Hans Bishop.

We’re also excited to announce that Intellectual Ventures co-founder and CEO Nathan Myhrvold will join the lineup for a special fireside chat on Oct. 5.

The Summit will start on the evening of Oct. 3, with a welcome party at the amazing downtown headquarters of Zillow. That will be followed by conference activities on Oct. 4-5, including a fun first-night party on one of Seattle’s best rooftop decks.

This is one event you will not want to miss. Get your tickets today, before early-bird prices end.
