Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information
A Message from Chris Wink, Technical.ly CEO
(updated March 16, 2020)
To our Community,
As a news organization, we are as dedicated to accurate reporting as we are to taking seriously the health and well-being of our community, including ensuring full compliance with health authority recommendations and mandates.
As of March 15, 2020, the CDC recommends that no gatherings of more than 50 people are held for the next 8 weeks, which would include Philly Tech Week’s original dates (May 1-May 9, 2020).
Given this restriction, we will be postponing, not canceling, Philly Tech Week for dates later this year. We have a few options and are working diligently on planning a new timeframe.
We are grateful for the tremendous support we continue to receive from sponsors, partners, speakers, advisors, event organizers, and the community at large. Together we will help grow Philly Tech Week into this year’s 10th annual success. While we are deeply disappointed to postpone, we know this is for the greater good and remain committed as ever to helping the tech community and local organizations grow.
We will do our best to keep the community updated in real-time via our newsletters, websites, and social channels. Additionally, please join our PTW20 Town Hall on April 6 where we will have a more comprehensive update https://www.meetup.com/Technically-Philly/events/269401706/.
I’ll leave you with one silver lining our team has found: this postponement is absolutely an opportunity to do something bigger, better and more effective for our community. We are proud to count you as a partner and champion in that mission. If you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
