Kick Off CE Week With Gear, Swag and gdgt Live


The gdgt crew is hosting the official CE Week kickoff event next week, and the T-shirts and iPhone cases are gonna fly. Betabeat is a sponsor for this free event at the Altman Building that mixes a bit of boozing, a bit of schmoozing and a bit of trade show, as the only CE Week event that’s open to consumers. The crew also already bequeathed the equivalent of $3,500 to a lucky local startup ( in the form of a silver sponsorship. There will be hordes of “amazing gear” to win in contests at the event. The show is all ages—that means soda pop for you, under-21 kid. RSVP here.
