Call for Sponsors for HFES Tuesday Newtworking Reception


By Stan Caplan

Our annual PDTG networking reception held jointly with HCTG will continue this year on Tuesday evening, October 29th, from 7:00-9:00pm.  Join us at the Hard Rock CafĂ©, just a short walk from the Sheraton hotel in Seattle.  Takeaways from this event are camaraderie and a full stomach. Greet old (and young) friends! Meet new colleagues!  Share interests and spark new collaborations!  Win a door prize if you are lucky!  Get a free drink from the bar!  Eat the complimentary food!  A slider station will have an assortment of sandwiches and side dishes. Fresh fruit and dessert are also on the menu.

This event is made possible by the generosity of sponsors and by people like you who maintain membership in the TGs.  The Reception is open to all members of PDTG and HCTG.  Also welcome are non-members who are seriously considering joining either of these TGs.  The event is organized by the TGs for the benefit of its members.

Unlike some other events that are totally sponsored by a single donor, primary funding for this networking reception comes from many sponsors who donate a modest amount.  Last year 15 sponsors valued the event enough to contribute at the Junior, Senior, or Principal level.  See them in the display below.  I continue to seek sponsors for this year.  So far, there are 12 sponsors.

It’s not too late to be a 2019 sponsor.  Please contact me at scaplan@usabilityassociates.com to get more information and to get a link to an online form that will get your organization’s name and logo displayed in multiple places including the meeting program, meeting signage, onsite event signage, postings, and newsletters like this.
