ANNAPOLIS, MD – May 1, 2015 – The Chesapeake Regional Tech Council (CRTC) announced today that the 11th Annual BBQ on the Bay Tech Expo will take place at The Point at Back Creek on Thursday, June 25, 2015 from 6:00pm to 9:00pm. Registration is open to both Members and Non-Members.

This premier tech event of the summer provides a forum for technology innovation and business connectivity, with more than 400+ tech executives networking over beer and wine on the beautiful shores of the Chesapeake Bay’s Bembe Beach. Featuring a BBQ menu served in a bay-front, relaxed setting, and this Annual Signature event provides members and potential members the opportunity to connect in a casual atmosphere.

The BBQ on the Bay is designed to take the edge off the suit and tie format of typical tech networking by creating an island oasis in the heart of Annapolis – so the dress code is casual and shorts are welcome. Says Event Chair Don Nippard of Skyline Technology Solutions, "I am honored and thrilled to serve as the Chair of CRTC BBQ event for the sixth consecutive year. It’s our eleventh year of enjoying BBQ, technology on display and networking that is second to none. In helping to drive the event for the past five years, I’ve seen the event nearly double in size and heard many a positive story about the BBQ being a "must attend” event.  Our eleventh looks to be better than ever. Whether you arrive to our Bembe Beach location by car, boat, sail, shuttle, water taxi or kayak, just make sure it’s on your calendar. We look forward to seeing our largest crowd to-date "by the Bay”.”

Since parking is limited, attendees are encouraged to carpool, take shuttles available en route to the event and consider coming by boat. Limited boat slips are available and water taxis will also be available from the Annapolis City Dock.

The CRTC is offering discounted early registration tickets for Members-Only, available from May 1st - May 15th for  $60 per person. After the early registration deadline of May 15th, the price for tickets purchased prior to June 24th is $70 for Members and $90 for Non-Members. Space is limited. Registration and more information is available at: Limited sponsorships are available starting at just $250. Contact for details. Event Location: The Point at Back Creek, 7001 Bembe Beach Road, Annapolis, MD 21403.
