Event Details

Are you a Techweek conference badge holder? If not, what are you waiting for?  We’d love for you to join us during the week of June 24th for our Techweek Grand Tours. The TechweekGT is an interactive tour of the most innovative, compelling office spaces in Chicago. This is your chance to exchange ideas with local executives and see where all the action happens.

RSVP today to join us on our tours.  We are excited to get as many people involved in this event, but due to capacity restrictions at some offices, we may not accommodate all registered attendees.  We will contact you to confirm your RSVP shortly. 


Day 1 – Monday, June 24, 3 - 7PM*

Stop 1
Braintree
111 N. Canal St.

We're not about stuffy cubicles. We're about getting the best work done; however that needs to happen. On any given day, you'll see people riding motorized scooters around the office, engaged in competitive ping pong tournaments and snacking in our fully stocked kitchen. Did I mention there’s a treehouse?


Stop 2
SingleHop
215 W. Ohio St.

By using large spaces with cubicles in key areas to afford privacy for those who need it, we have managed to create a very open and collaborative environment between departments. During the warmer months, employees are welcome to work on the rooftop and enjoy an incredible view of Chicago's skyline.


Stop 3
Centro
222 W. Hubbard St.

As advocates of a strong company culture, Centro fosters a collaborative and friendly work environment- a tactic that has contributed to three straight titles for Crain's Best Place to Work in Chicago. Come check out digital media and advertising at its best here at the Centro headquarter offices. 


Day 2 – Tuesday, June 25, 4 - 6:30PM*

Stop 1
kCura
231 S. LaSalle St.

kCura's office houses nearly 300 team members, and was built out specifically for the company- complete with development scrums, eclectic breakouts spaces, and a ragged green couch that's been there since the early days.


Stop 2
Cars.com
175 W. Jackson Blvd.

In the heart of downtown Chicago, Cars.com’s HQ is home to over 800 employees and provides an office space that’s akin to our culture – open, collaborative and fun.


Stop 3
Ifbyphone
300 W. Adams St.

Come see what it looks like to push the boundaries of web and voice technologies in a fast-paced fun environment

 

Day 3 – Wednesday, June 26, 3 - 6PM*


Stop 1

Raise
311 W. Superior St.

At 8,000 sq. ft, the openness of the Raise.com office enables collaboration between each department and symbolizes the transparency of our company goals. Enjoy cocktails and hors d'oeuvres prepared by our in-house chef while touring the lounge area, custom built kitchen and workspace.

 

Stop 2

Groupon
600 W. Chicago Ave.

Changing the face of local commerce on a Global scale takes a little creativity and a lot of innovation. Also a cat. In a spaceship. Come check us out!
