In what may be the largest outdoor event held in the city’s downtown since the pandemic began, more than a thousand techies and urban professionals are gathering at a park later this month.
Tech Bloc, a local tech sector advocacy organization, will host the “Reboot Rally” from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 20, at Legacy Park across from the new Frost Tower. The event is being billed as a reignition of pre-pandemic life – for those who are ready for it.
“We want to bring the tech community back online and celebrate with an energetic boost, a jump start to the engine, a signal to ourselves and the world that the tech district is fully back open for business,” said Tech Bloc CEO David Heard.
The event will also feature the unveiling of a new, County-funded website Heard said will highlight the tech district’s venues and market it in economic development efforts. A promotion for the event says the web resource will “document and share the exciting story of our growing tech district with the world for years to come.”
