Austin Tech Happy Hour

Since 2007 the Austin Tech Happy Hour has been the place for the emerging technology community to relax and network with each other.

Next Event

Dec 5th, 5:30pm - 7:30pm at The Dogwood on West 6th

Holiday Party

It's hard to believe that the end of the year is already upon us, but it's time for our annual holiday party! Does anybody remember this event from two years ago when it legitimately snowed for 2 solid hours during happy hour at The Dogwood downtown? You could see the big flakes slowly drifting down from the sky against the downtown streetlights. A very strange sight for Austin, Texas which is probably why it was so memorable.

Early Bird tickets are $5. Once those are gone, Pre-Registration is $7.50. If you're not the type of person that plans ahead, you can always pay $10 at the door if there is space available.

Every admission includes two drink tickets. This event is at a bar, so 21+ please.

If your phone hasn't already reminded you, tonight the W will play host to the April edition of Austin Tech Happy Hour. Starting at 6 p.m. on Thursday, tech-minded people from around the capitol area will be wearing name tags (as they often do), having a drink (as they often do), and meeting some of the people they have friended, added, and maybe squeezed into a hashtag.

It's at the center of Austin's entrepreneurial scene - it's a great opportunity to get out of the office, meet new people, reconnect with those you've been meaning to see, and exchange ideas over a tasty beverage.

Austin Tech Happy Hour is the place I go to see the mover's and shaker's who don't show up anywhere else. If you're only going to one happy hour this month, Tech Happy Hour should be it.

Each happy hour we feature a small number of emerging technology companies who are allowed to demonstrate beta-level ideas and concetps, and soon-to-be-released products in order to get feedback and exposure to key technology executives.

 Marketing Visibility

We have thousands of technology professionals on our mailing list, lots of fans on our Facebook page, and a vast group on LinkedIn that will all see your brand and messaging as a sponsor of the happy hour.

You receive a six foot table and a place to hang a banner right behind your table. Placement is right at the front where all our guests arrive. It's the perfect arrangement to meet and interact with our attendees.

 Shared Sponsorship

We allow a maximum of two sponsors per event, who are not industry competitors. We strive for balance in the marketing presence of each company when it comes to marketing materials, giveaways, or promotional products at the event.
