Local Speakers, Bands, Beer & Food Trucks To Rock Boston TechJam 2017

New York, NY (Top40 Charts / Boston TechJam) Boston TechJam - a celebration of the technology ecosystem and culture of New England- and Boston-area entrepreneurs, startups, established tech companies, venture capitalists, non-profit organizations and higher learning institutions - has released its 2017 content lineup!

Over 7,000 Boston TechJam attendees will gather at City Hall Plaza on Thursday, June 15 from 4:00 to 9:00 p.m. to join the part block party, part tech showcase. Although speakers were missing from last year's event, Boston TechJam 2017 is partnering with BostInno to bring an exciting lineup that will feature robots, fitness and audio tech. WBUR's Asma Khalid will also be moderating a discussion with Boston tech leaders on diversity, talent and leadership.

"Attendees have been asking for more opportunities to learn from the wealth of experience and knowledge Boston has to offer, so we're thrilled to bring speakers back to Boston TechJam this year," said TechJam co-founder Mark Lorion, president and GM of Apperian. "These high-caliber guests will appeal to everyone - from students just starting out to long-time, seasoned executives."

In addition to the newly added speaker lineup, two of the area's top bands will perform, Jack's Abby beer will be poured and food trucks will be lining up, creating a fun environment for networking, discovery of local innovation and idea sharing to accelerate the region's technology ecosystem and culture.

"Boston TechJam, now in its fifth year, is a networking event unlike any other: a giant block party with innovative companies showing off their latest inventions," said Ben Maitland-Lewis, CEO of and Founding Music & Entertainment Director of Boston TechJam. "The incredibly fun and unique-to-the-area atmosphere really brings the community together to celebrate all that we as a city are contributing to the world."

This year's entertainment line-up includes:
Speakers - Throughout the event, speakers will be discussing Boston's audio tech scene, how Mass. is shaping the fitness industry, and how robots are making the world a better place.

Live Music - Award-winning bands will play funk, soul, R&B, pop, and reggae to keep the party grooving. Bands this year include East Coast Soul, joining Boston TechJam for their second year, and Spiritual Rez, performing their only live show in Boston before continuing on tour.

Games and Exhibits from over 100 Local Companies - While the bands are rocking, entrepreneurs, startups, established tech companies, venture capitalists, non-profit groups and students will be checking out local innovations and enjoying fun, festival-style activities and games. The exhibiting companies will be organized as "Innovation Villages" to inspire community and networking within the event.

Food and Libations - Attendees can stay fueled at the festival by enjoying beer from Jack's Abby and munching on eats from a variety of Boston-favorite food trucks, including: Chubby Chickpea, Moyzilla, Rhythm & Wraps, Roxy's Grilled Cheese, Sabroso Taqueria, Zo on the Go, Vice Cream, The Sausage Guy, Revelry and Collettey's Cookies.

The event would not be possible without the thought leadership and financial support of underwriting sponsors Autodesk, Cengage, Chewy, Cybereason, EBSCO, Kronos Incorporated, Monster, Optum, PTC and Rapid7.
