If you’ve ever thought we should have a North by NorthWest (NxNW) event similar to SxSW, then you’re in luck – it’s called TechfestNW and it’s happening this weekend.
With speakers from the likes of Target, Nike, Beats Music, Tumblr, Dollar Shave Club, Intel, and many more, it’s attracting the attention of technology junkies across the country. As described on their information page;
TechfestNW is a gathering of leading thinkers, startups and established companies showcasing the Pacific Northwest’s talent and innovation and Portland as a digital and cultural hub. TechfestNW kicked off in 2012 to bring together technology, design, creativity, entrepreneurship, education, career opportunities and talent. It runs in conjunction with MusicfestNW, one of the largest independent music festivals in the United States. According to Fortune magazine, “Tech may have found its next SXSW.”
Held August 15-16, TechfestNW 2014 includes well honed speaker programming, a talent and exhibition fair, and plenty of networking opportunities.
