The Crunchies Awards celebrate the best tech accomplishments of 2009. Co-hosted by Join GigaOm, VentureBeat and TechCrunch, we will announce winners from 18 different award categories live on stage at the event. We'll have special guest appearances and entertainment too.
The ceremony Friday January 8, 2010 at 7:30 pm the Herbst Theater in San Francisco. General seating for each orchestra and balcony tickets opens at 6:45 pm. Please arrive early to get your preferred seats.
An after party will follow across the street in City Halls' Grand Rotunda through midnight. There will be a sponsor-hosted bar, savory nibbles and desserts, music and a game room, featuring a mix of traditional and online games to play.
There are plenty of ways to sponsor and support the after-party energy. Contact Jeanne Logozzo or Heather Harde if you’d like to sponsor: card-game tables, demo tables, photo booths or walls, drinks or food, giveaways and prizes and the like. We have creative packages available in all shapes and sizes. Room for award benefactors and entertainment sponsors for the ceremony too.
Remember that voting is open through midnight PST, Wednesday, January 6. Everyone is eligible and encouraged to vote daily for their favorite people, products and companies of the year.
We look forward to celebrating the best of 2009 and ushering in a promising 2010. Best,
