The Social Mediasphere Is Buzzing With Talk About The Dave Balter Tech Prom: A Prom For Startup “Geeks”

Posted by erik devaney

Where will you be on Thursday, October 20th at 8:00 p.m.? Well, if you’re a startup “geek” in the Boston area whose “first shot at prom was less than a triumph,” Dave Balter wants you to come to his Tech Prom.

Advertised as “a second chance at the prom of a lifetime,” the Tech Prom promises to be an evening of dancing, hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. Unlike at your high school prom, you will not get kicked out of Tech Prom for drinking. Instead, all of the prom tickets — which range in price from $20 for a “Basic” ticket, $30 for a VIP “Baller” ticket, to $35 for a “Couples” ticket — include open bar for the full night: from 8:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m. Currently the location is still unknown.

Buzz for the Tech Prom is all over the social mediasphere and perhaps no one is leading the social media charge with more gusto than the prom’s namesake: Dave Balter (just take a look at his Twitter profile). Balter is the founder and CEO of BzzAgent: a Boston-based social marketing company that uses word of mouth to drive sales. By exploring the official Dave Balter Tech Prom “Dancer” page on Facebook, you can also learn that Balter enjoys “balloon arches, spiked punch, the Macarena, Hummer limos, floral accessories, and dancing at arm’s length.”

As a founder and CEO of a company that specializes in generating buzz, it comes as no surprise that Balter is already getting a lot of people talking about his event, which is still over a month away. Just take a look on Twitter and search the hashtag, #DBTechProm.



The Tech Prom Facebook page is also garnering a lot of buzz. Check out these wall posts:



If you plan on attending the Dave Balter Tech Prom, make sure you show up prepared. As Balter notes on the event’s Facebook page, “I’m going to get a room key…just in case.”
