Tiger Direct Tech Bash 2014 at Marlins Park on Friday, November 7, 2014.

“The TigerDirect Tech Bash aims to reach a young professional consumer and business executive audience. This end-user facing, pre-holiday showcase will include the top premier brands in the consumer electronics industry, local tech start-ups, and the Miami business community.”


“In November 2012, the inaugural Tech Bash was held to celebrate the launch of Windows 8 and the new OEM computer lines with an interactive, food and drink fueled party with over 4,000 attendees.

In May 2013, a “Tech Summit” was held in conjunction with a traditional training symposium, showcasing 50 vendors in a tradeshow format with over 1,500 business and consumer attendees. Light fare and cocktails plus various activities in tow.

Our customers desire for more tech events in South Florida, combined with the ever-changing face of consumer electronics, we determined that a combination of the two would provide a great customer experience. Our vendors showcasing the latest in technology, interactive displays, an integration of music & art, as well as other emerging technologies.”

O. Ascanio Gallery is opening a major exhibition of work by celebrated illustrator, sculptor and public artist Jorge Blanco. Over three decades, Blanco has built a following of devotees and collectors. First with his beloved comic strip “El Naufrago,” (The Castaway), and later through his large-scale geometrical sculptures, 26 of which have been commissioned publicly in the United States, Latin America and Asia.

Jorge Blanco’s signature creations offer universal appeal; they are testaments to the glory of passion and optimism of everyday life. He translates poetic humor as an illustrator into vivacious sculptures that engage viewers with an evocative and distinct choreography. Bright primary colors and geometric shapes form athletes, fruit, animals and abstractions.

This retrospective is bringing together diverse works across mediums showcasing Blanco’s most recognizable projects. Included are a series of watercolors inspired by “The Castaway,” his graphic and illustrative work in children’s storybooks, big and small collectible sculptures, and pieces from his decorative design line, such as coffee tables, benches, design mugs and more.

Jorge Blanco lives and works in Sarasota, Florida. In addition to his public art commissions, he has created numerous works for private collectors in Brazil, Canada, Switzerland, France, Venezuela, Uruguay, Argentina, Germany, Belgium, China, Indonesia, Japan, the Dominican Republic and the USA. He’s the recipient of multiple accolades, most recent is the DCOTA Stars of Design 2013.
