When Social Tables moved into the now iconic STHQ at 1325 G St. NW, we hosted a press conference with Mayor Muriel Bowser during which we committed ourselves to hosting at least 100 events in our first two years in STHQ. We want our space to bring the DC community and DC Tech scene together, all the while helping others experience the power of face-to-face meetings. And now, our 10,000sf of flexible, functional space is continuing to serve the DC community in new and interesting ways.
First, what percent to goal are we on our 100 event by the end of 2017 commitment? We are 98% to goal at the start of this month after a few cancellations, and anticipate hitting 100 unique events hosted in the space in the next two or so weeks!
What’s coming up at STHQ in October 2016? Remember, this list is ever growing and changing, but below you’ll find a listing of the events we anticipate having at STHQ in October.
