Best Buy For Business, which does a pile of deployment work in Canada and is getting more deeply involved in the sector, is sponsoring an industry mixer next Tuesday, March 8th, at Shoeless Joe’s in downtown Toronto.
The address is 276 King Street West, at the intersection of King and Duncan.
The mixer will run from 6 to whenever it peters out, typically 9ish.
Tony White from Best Buy in Burnaby is in town and kindly offered to step and sponsor. It has been way too long since we did a mixer but the 2nd Tuesday of the month thing repeatedly conspired against me, and Dmitry Sokolov, who was a co-conspirator, changed jobs in recent months (he’s now with HP).
We already have people asking about tickets, and getting on the list, but this is different from a Preset mixer in Vegas. We don’t have the same worries about numbers. If you want to meet some great industry people and swap some cards, and then follow the usual pattern of spilling out in the streets to overturn police cars, then please do come.
If you could send me an email, though, at dave [at] pressdooh.com, we can develop a rough sense of how many to expect. Out-of-towners and people new to the sector are particularly welcomed, though its nowhere near as much fun to have them since the human rights people had a word with us about hazing.
