September 22, 2012 Doubletree Hotel, Philadelphia, PA
2012 will be year four for RT Philly and we’re reaching back to the ugly business conferences of the 1990s for inspiration. But before I get ahead of myself let me tell you about some things to look forward to.
We’re going to be just slightly bigger and better this year with one extra hour of conference time.
Our re-organized staff and planning process should make the registration and the weekend of events run much smoother.
We’ll be having specially designed “side quests” hosted by JengaJam throughout the weekend.
More music, arts, media and vendors!
And lastly, we have SPONSORS this year!
We’re pretty enthusiastic about 2012 and we hope you’ll plan to join us for an awesome weekend!
It’s 8pm so you know what that means? It’s time to kick off the final RT:Philly fundraiser.
(hold for applause)
As part of the fundraiser we’ll be releasing the exclusive Martha Marin: Rock Patch, a short film featuring the wonderfully talented Martha Marin. The intro to Martha Marin: Rock Patch can be found at the bottom of this post. But don’t scroll down, yet as we have much more to cover. Below is just the intro video, and once you watch it, you’ll want more, seriously this film is like crack, one hit and you’re hooked for life. So here is the release schedule for the rest of the short.
