Creative Alliance Milwaukee Update

May 13, 2011

Booth Pictures
The BizTech Expo was a success! Thanks to Biz Times (Steve Jagler, Dan Meyer and Laura Jones), we had a great time at the Expo! If you attended and took a picture at our booth, they're posted on our website, along with other pictures and videos from the event. 

I would like to thank Shirah Apple for her tenacity in putting all of it together, Laurel Osman for her technical wizardry, Denise Lubotsky for her 'always there' support and the incredibly talented volunteers who showed up to help us make visiting our booth a very fun experience. This was our first experience and we will do it again! 

We have more great (and cheap!) events coming up:
  • Creativity Works Here - June 8,  a creative space open house, FREE
  • Hub Live: Miller Time - July 20, networking & beer sampling, $5 or FREE for Creative Alliance Members


Have a great weekend,
