PerkettPR Helps TechCrunch Bring MeetUp 11 to Boston

Grouop_at_tc The team here is really excited to be working with the TechCrunch gang, and their co-host IDG Ventures, to bring the respected MeetUp parties to Boston November 16. We have been busy over the last month or so planning venues, confirming sponsors and brainstorming with Jeanne Logozzo to pull the MeetUp 11 party together. We’re proud to welcome Mike Arrington, Heather Harde and new Co-Editor Erick Schonfeld to our beautiful city and we intend to work very hard to help them make this the best TechCrunch event yet.

 

 

Like last time, PerkettPR will be in full force with a thirst-quenching station. We hope to see you all there! If you are interested in sponsorships, let us know or contact Jeanne directly.
