The Chamber of Commerce is partnering with the City of Mountain View for the 3rd Annual Technology Showcase. The event features the most innovative technology coming from Mountain View. The first Tech Showcase, back in 2015, had 13 exhibitors. Last year’s event had around 25, and this year there will be 40 local companies that want to show-off their products and technology to the community. It’s so much fun to see what’s happening behind the doors of some of the companies that are changing the world.
The Technology Showcase will be on July 12 at Civic Center Plaza (500 Castro St.) from 11:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. And yes, there will be food trucks, so don’t worry about lunch.
It might be difficult to park, so carpool or ride your bike if possible. We’re expecting a good crowd. After I've gone to this event in the past, I felt overwhelmed with pride over the amazing things my community is doing to make the world a better place, and now that I looked over the exhibitor list, I know I'll feel the same way again this year.
