What do you get when you combine 7,000 people, block party vibes, and a “Who’s-Who” of the Boston tech scene? Hint: the 5th Annual Boston TechJam. Team QCG recently attended the 2017 event at City Hall Plaza in downtown Boston, and had a stellar experience.
What Is It?
TechJam is a gathering of over forty companies in the Boston tech community, coming together to educate, recruit, and demonstrate. With local breweries, live music, and festive surroundings, the event fosters a social environment that makes it easy and fun to strike up conversation.
What Did We Like?
- Atmosphere – Exciting, educational, inclusive, and fun. These were our impressions of the event, which draws you in with the sense that you are an important part of the festivities. Whether it’s discussing candidates for software developers while trying your hand at giant Jenga or learning about cloud-based solutions while tossing a football, there were a myriad of activities to enjoy while connecting with exhibitors.
- Variety – We were impressed with the range of exhibiting companies; everything from staffing and data storage to health IT and local colleges were represented. The many choices provided the opportunity to discuss a familiar company’s specific products or hiring needs, or to get a general introduction to something new you may have just discovered walking into the event. The variety of exhibitors kept things fresh and the interest level high.
This is an excellent choice for companies large and small, as well as individuals, with an interest in the Boston tech scene. The wide variety of exhibitors combined with the welcoming and exciting atmosphere make for a unique and memorable event, one that has grown in size and complexity in each of the five years since its inception. The QCG team enjoyed our time there, and we are very much looking forward to attending next year.
