We are all winners during Philly Tech Week
Once a year the first week in May is filled with festivities and events centered around the Philly Technology scene. The Philly HUG represented the HubSpot Community by sponsoring an event with host Dan Tyre presenting on the topic of Smarketing. The results were a massive turn-out, an abundance of motivation, and fun prizes awarded for the audience participation.
