Geek Goes Chic: We're Partying With PopSugar

Update: The first batch of 200 tickets sold out almost immediately. PopSugar readers get the next batch, but more will be available soon. Also, if you plan to attend, please add yourself to the Facebook event here. MySpace event page is here.

This is going to be our best party yet.

PopSugar is a (huge) blog all about fashion, beauty, shopping and celebrity news. TechCrunch is about startups and the geeks that create them. These two groups definitely need to mingle.

So on April 10, in Hollywood of course, we are putting on a huge party with them. The theme – Geek Goes Chic. Expect lots of startup geeks commingling with, well, normal people. Who are most likely attractive. And can carry on a conversation. What could could possibly go wrong? See how PopSuger is presenting it to their readers here.

The party is being held at Vanguard in Hollywood, which holds up to 1,500 people. Like our previous events, there will be sponsors, hors d’oeuvre and an open bar. Unlike our previous parties, not all of the sponsors will be startup and tech related.

Event Details:

  • Date: Thursday, April 10, 2008
  • Time: 6:30 pm – midnight
  • Venue: Vanguard, 6021 Hollywood Boulevard, Hollywood (maps: Google / Microsoft / Yahoo)

We’re releasing the tickets in stages – the first 200 tickets are available now. As usual, tickets are $10 to manage the guest list, and proceeds will be donated to charity. All ticket purchases are non-transferable and non-refundable. If you purchase multiple tickets under your own name, your guests will need to arrive together with you at the event. Photo IDs are required for event check-in; no paper tickets necessary. Hope to see you there!

Sponsor Opportunities

The Vanguard is a huge club with outdoor patio and cabanas. The club can hold over 1,500 people, and we expect this to be the largest MeetUp yet. The large-format venue is very conducive to creative sponsorship opportunities that can really showcase innovations in new and interactive media. Sponsorship packages are available in all shapes and sizes– dedicated entertainment rooms, specialty cocktails, MeetUp giveaways, demo tables, etc. Please contact Jeanne Logozzo to learn more about sponsorships.

There are a limited number of sponsorship spots for companies to take “center stage” during the entertainment portion of the evening. The venue has a built-in catwalk, a stage/dance floor and the latest high-tech production equipment.
