The SHIFT Awards Debut
The SHIFT Awards premiere Wednesday, March 10th, celebrating technology focused stories from innovators spanning the South Sound. Businesses from around the region will share their approach to technology application that opened up new possibilities for service and success.
"This event springs from the refrain that was often heard at the South Sound Technology Conference about how we in the South Sound need to get together and create events around technology and collaboration.
The reality is that there is a ton of great stuff going on in the South Sound relating to technology, and it's about time we look around and say, 'Hey this is a pretty great place to live, work, and innovate,'" said SiteCrafting President, Brian Forth. Read more about the purpose for SHIFT
Held at the Theater on the Square in downtown Tacoma, the event will include a cocktail hour prior and light appetizers and desserts to follow. Attendees will have the opportunity to congratulate honorees, share stories and network.
Each honoree will prepare a brief presentation about their company and/or the technology related innovation to share with the audience. They will have 10 minutes and 10 slides to tell their story. Opportunities to share innovations prior to, during and after the awards will allow local innovators to start discussions to inspire each other to incorporate technology in new ways to propel business goals.
