Join us from 7 p.m. – 11 p.m. Thursday, May 2 at the Museum of Pop Culture (MoPOP) in Seattle for one of the region’s most-anticipated and hotly-contested tech events: The GeekWire Awards. Continuing this great tradition, we’ll reveal the winners of the Pacific Northwest’s annual startup and technology awards, as nominated and chosen by GeekWire readers.
We will be taking over the SkyChurch at the Museum of Pop Culture for an all-out party for the thriving tech community. We’ll celebrate our community’s movers-and-shakers, up-and-comers, and thought leaders: The tech rock stars of the Pacific Northwest. Heavy appetizers, signature cocktails, wine, and beer will be served.
Past winners have included Tableau, Zulily, Tune, PopCap Games, Arivale, OfferUp, Brown Paper Tickets, Avalara’s Scott McFarlane, University of Washington computer science professor Ed Lazowska and many more.
It’s not a formal affair — it’s just a lot of fun.
Winners will be chosen in more than a dozen categories, from Startup of the Year to Next Tech Titan to Geek of the Year. The GeekWire Awards sell out every year, so make sure to get your tickets today! GeekWire Awards’ attendees also will get full access to MoPop exhibits including the new Guitar Gallery (opening March) and Prince Exhibition (opening April).
