Halloween is officially in the books, and that means one thing: It’s time to bust out your favorite holiday sweater or cocktail dress for the big GeekWire Gala.

Our annual holiday party will bring together 1,000 party-goers on Wednesday, Dec. 6 at the beautiful Museum of History & Industry in Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood. Early-bird ticket prices for the Gala end this Friday, so make sure to go here to grab yours before prices go up.

Many companies supplement their own holiday festivities with the Gala, so if you’re interested in making the gala your holiday party, just make sure to sign up your team under the group rates.

The Gala sells out every year, so don’t snooze and let the party of the season pass you by.

Never attended the Gala? You can get a full sense of the fun in this recap — including a few shots of folks kickin’ it on the dance floor — from last year.

Attendees will get full access to the museum, including a new exhibit titled “Seattle on the Spot” featuring the amazing photography of Al Smith. Of course, we’ll have plenty of food and drinks, and some of the most interesting folks from tech community.

We’ll also once again partner with MOHAI to unveil The Seattle 10, featuring 10 up-and-coming startup companies that will display their business concepts on giant cocktail napkins. A few other fun surprises are in store this year, too.

We hope you can join us on Dec. 6th!

A big thanks to all of our GeekWire Gala sponsors, including our title sponsor Wells Fargo. Also, thanks to our gold sponsors: Regence, OfferUp, UPS Connect and Perkins Coie.

And thanks to our silver sponsors — Moz, MOHAI, Alaska Airlines and the Foster School of Business — and to our partners and supporting sponsors: Bader Martin and ALLtech.
