Post Show Recap:
Digital Startup Speaker Series:
On the center stage DWXPO featured over 20 startup companies showcasing their digtial media innovations and emerging channels. Each pre-qualified company had 10 minutes to pitch their services, provide company info and explain why their tools and services made sense for marketers today.
SEO Live Demonstration:
The Digital World Expo Hall featured an Interactive SEO exhibit which was a mixture of part classroom, part question and answer session. This is where top SEO speakers from around the country came to help attendees better understand how each of their site components effects their site placements in search engines.
Exhibit Hall Ambiance:
The Exhibit Hall at Digital World Expo v201.1 was not your ordinary trade-show expo… rather; it was a completely immersive atmosphere complete with a live DJ, a fully stocked Bar, Live SEO demonstrations, a Mobile Gaming Theater (not as in apps, but think motor transportation complete with five 36” LCD monitors, and an Xbox 360 and Wii for each), a comfy meeting area replete with leather chairs and couches, as well as a main stage where Digital Startups could make presentations for prospective investors.
End of Event Party:
As Digital World Expo came to an end on the evening of September 26th, there were mixed emotions felt by all. One emotion that everyone wanted to share was the excitement and happiness of the first DWE being such a success. What better way to share that excitement than with a celebration!
Upon entering the studio of King Ink inside The Mirage, the faint intermittent buzzing of a tattoo gun could be heard. Our fearless protagonist, Michael York walks with an air in his step, eager to receive his first tattoo in the name of technology. Once in the chair, with frightful eyes, Michael looked up to surrounding viewers. The tattoo artist, Jason Preacher glanced at him and asked, “Are you ready?”
Digital World Expo v201.1 was…
… nothing short of “Awesome!”. We’d like to thank everyone for a ton of positive feedback and comments as the conference lived up to all promises!
