The event coincides with the inaugural Dig South Interactive Festival, which kicks off tomorrow and is hosting PeopleMatter CEO as its keynote speaker Saturday morning. It is invitation-only and will feature speeches from DaPore, Mayor Joe Riley, Charleston Digital Corridor Director Ernest Andrade as well as tours of the swanky new four-story office, which features a rooftop deck, according to the Post and Courier.
In the City Paper cover story this week, DaPore reflected excitedly on the Holy City's prospects to become a technology hub, "This is [Charleston's] time. This is its calling to rise up to the occasion and fill the need, and I really think this is the window that we've got to seize the moment."
It's been a year and a half since PeopleMatter announced it would revamp the long-vacant building at 466 King St. and eventually take over the space currently occupied by Charleston Beer Works, but over the last couple months, the web-based HR technology services company has been gradually moving into its new digs downtown from their Navy Yard offices.
The road closure will run from 4:30-9:30.
