Hub + Spoke by the Global Switchboard
October 13, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm
On October 13th, The Global Switchboard Hub is coming to life at the Ace Hotel during Hub + Spoke! The event will highlight the people, projects, and organizations that are committed to better connecting Pittsburgh to the world.
The Global Switchboard Hub will be a publicly-accessible website that facilitates communication and collaboration among global engagement professionals, helps individuals find relevant services, and showcases the community’s work. We invite you to experience the Hub for yourself at Hub+Spoke, an event that embodies the digital hub through a series of interactive experiences brought to you by partners from across Pittsburgh’s global engagement network.
Imagine pulling a website from the internet, and exploring it in real life! The Ace Hotel gymnasium will transform into a physical representation of the digital hub, with six zones surrounding an open center, like spokes on a wheel. Signage at the entrance of each zone will describe key themes of global engagement. Eat, learn, and exchange ideas as you partake in the activities put on by partner organizations in each zone.
Formal Presentation (8:30pm)
Following the interactive portion of the event you will be invited to move from the gymnasium to the 2nd floor ballroom for a keynote address, followed by a short presentation from The Global Switchboard about the digital hub.
After Party (9:30pm)
Following the keynote address, the event will transition into a dance party. Get on the dance floor! Enjoy drinks, music, and a good time!
