Yahoo, if I can attend this even my staff and I will be in attendance. Of course though that just includes me, but I am ready to do all of the needed networking.
Looks like Credit Suisse didn't realize the power that 'upcoming' has to reach the technorati in Portland. The event sounds interesting - next time use a bigger venue. Wait a sec, the Armory should be able to hold a hundred people at least, right?
Hi donpdonp- Thanks for your input. You are absolutely right-- I think this event for Credit Suisse is long overdue. While the Armory does hold more than 100 people, we currently have more than 220 people attending tonight and have to cut it off at some point. We will definitely keep your comments in mind if/when we have this event in the future.
aziari - thanks for the note. so the 20 or so people on the upcoming "attending" list is far from the whole roster. you're definitely on to something big here!
As an addendum, we've also invited locally based and sustainable Hopworks Urban Brewery and Vista Hills Vineyard & Winery to come showcase some of there best beers/wines for you all to sample. Should be fun.
Also, as of today, there are only 30 or so slots left for this event--we're currently planning for 175. I would recommend RSVPing now if you haven't already to make sure you've got a space.
