This week on Techpoint: You are special

by | Mar 24, 2018

You asked, we listened.

According to feedback we keep receiving, because our past events have always been overbooked, a lot of attendees end up standing throughout. We know this is uncomfortable. So in response, we are introducing VIP tickets for Techpoint Inspired.

While the event is still FREE to attend, VIP tickets will guarantee holders a front row seat, express entry, access to our ‘Blueroom’ and other perks.

Sounds like you? Purchase tickets at


Don’t forget Techpoint Inspired is still slated for May 29, 2018. See you there!
