8 Ways To Connect with Comcast NBCUniversal at Philly Tech Week

For the second year in a row, Comcast is proud to be the title sponsor for Philly Tech Week.

Organized by Technically Media, our production partners for the nationwide Tomorrow Tour event series, this annual celebration highlights innovation and technology throughout the Philadelphia region - the place we are proud to call home.

Last year, at least 25,000 people attended one of more than 150 official events, organized by more than 300 community partners and sponsors. This year, we’re excited that more of our Comcast innovators will be participating at events over the course of ten days. (Philly Tech Week has become so huge, it now requires more than just one calendar week.)
