There’s a good reason we return to Chicago every single year to host yet another WHIR Networking Event – it’s got a serious concentration of web hosting companies.
And last night was no exception for the sixth annual WHIR Networking Event in Chicago at Ay Chiwowa! bar.
It was great to see so many local web hosting companies in attendance, such as Coresite, Gigenet, Hostway, Netwisp, ServerCentral, Singlehop and Steadfast. Other notable companies in attendance included 1&1 Internet, Data Sales Company, eNom, Open-Xchange and Parallels.
A huge thank you goes out to our fabulous sponsors, who gave away some pretty fantastic prizes to a few lucky guests:
Desmond Stinnie from bpsNode won Litle & Co‘s $200 AMEX gift card.
Longtime WHIR event attendee Mark Luptak of Total Capacity won CSC Leasing‘s iPad Mini
Michael Rante from Chicago Data Center won Meritus Payments’ Dr. Dre ear buds
Jamie Madison, new marketing manager at Steadfast, won Insight‘s iPad mini
If you haven’t yet made it out to a WHIR Networking Event this year, we hope to see you at our upcoming ones in Los Angeles on April 10 and Toronto on May 15. To learn more about attending or sponsorship, visit www.WHIRevents.com.
