Time for TechWeek

It’s conference time, and SingleHop is gearing up for TechWeek 2012, right in our Chicago backyard.  These types of events are important to the industry, we get the chance to learn new technologies in the business, check out the competition, and more importantly, we get to interact with our clients.

Meeting the people that make our company possible is always a great thrill for SingleHop, so when we get the chance, we want to make sure everyone at the conference is having as much fun as we are.  This is why we will be out in full force on the Expo floor, so look for us wearing SingleHop shirts, and of course look for Poindexter as we will be talking with people about our story, and sharing a few laughs.  This year we are also sponsors of the event, so every participant will receive a SingleHop conference bag, that will have a special coupon inside, worth $100 off a month of web hosting. 

We will also be running a special Twitter picture contest, where we encourage everyone at the conference to tweet us a picture of them using the SingleHop conference bag, for a chance to win some great SingleHop gear.  This year there will be over 500 speakers at the conference, and two of our very own SingleHoppers are included in that list.

SingleHop Development Manager, Marc Bollinger, will be at the Discovery Stage presenting on how to choose the right infrastructure for your business.  His presentation, will be a great insight on cloud computing, and the differences between public and private cloud, and dynamic servers.  As our Development Manager, Marc has a wealth of knowledge on everything the hosting industry has to offer.  Marc’s presentation will start at 11:30am, Monday June 25.

Co-founder and CMO of SingleHop, Dan Ushman, a member of the Chicago Entrepeneur hall of fame, will also be getting in on the action.  He’ll be sitting in on a discussion panel called, “You’ve Got Funds: Strategic Use Company Wide.”  Here you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions to four of Chicago’s top technology companies, including SingleHop, about strategic use of revenue and investments.  The panel starts at 1:00pm on Tuesday June 26 on the Main Stage.

TechWeek brings in over 10,000 people for a four day innovation conference and technology expo.  Attendees can learn about spanning technology, design and media, and entrepreneurship.  At this year’s event there is a new StartUp City competition as well, where new start-ups can showcase their products for investors and potential customers.  SingleHop is looking forward to the weekend ahead, so be sure to come find us and say hello at TechWeek 2012!
