Third Annual Tiger Tech Bash at Marlins Park 11/7/14

Third Annual Tiger Tech Bash
Friday, November 7, 2014, 7-11pm
tigerdirectMarlins Park
501 Marlins Way
Miami, FL 33125

If you think 10,000 techies is a whole lot of geek power, how about 20,000? This year, TigerDirect has signed with the iconic Marlins Park in Miami to host an even bigger evening of innovation, emerging technology and interactive entertainment for its third annual TigerDirect Tech Bash this fall. Along with the expected bonanza of technology exhibits, demonstrations and large-scale activities, TigerDirect promises several new features, including on-site purchasing and even bigger names in tech.

³We are thrilled to double the size of last year’s Tech Bash and to expose our customers to the latest technology products and innovations,² says Steven Leeds, Director of Corporate Marketing at TigerDirect. ³We are equally excited about our partnerships with local companies and organizations as this is our effort to further propel South Florida into the international tech spotlight.”

With so many groundbreaking changes occurring regularly in the tech world, it is only fitting that the internationally covered Tech Bash would need to expand its offerings to keep up with the current state of affairs. At the 2013 Tech Bash, over 10,000 attendees immersed themselves in a stadium takeover event where 115 exhibitors- including Intel, HP, Lenovo, Dell and others- wowed crowds with activations, product launches and presentations of the latest tablets, laptops, big screens, cloud storage tech and other emerging technologies.

Attendees of this year¹s TigerDirect Tech Bash can expect live media coverage, interactive brand activations and exclusive deals. Additionally, TigerDirect will be letting the kids in on the fun- entry age to open up to 13+. Most notable of the current plethora of updates is allowing consumers to make on-site purchases, allowing attendees a chance to not only test new products, but to also take home exclusive products before the rest of the world has a chance.

Bike.Hack.Make.Drank Launching Republic Bikes at The Lab Miami 6/14/14

Bike.Hack.Make.Drank Launching Republic Bikes at The Lab Miami
Saturday, June 14, 9am-9pm
Republic-Bike-Hack-2014LAB Miami
400 Northwest 26th Street
Miami, FL 33127
RSVP for the HACK portion of the launch.

9am-5pm: HACK: A Bike Sharing System Hackathon
3-6pm: MAKE: A Bike Accessory Make-a-thon
6-9pm: DRANK: A Celebration & Bike Fleet Reveal

Bike on over, hack out a bike share program, make bike accessories with a 3D printer and then finish it all off with a drink! Sound like an obscure itinerary for a Saturday? Not to the folks at The LAB Miami and Republic Bike. Wynwood tech hub, The LAB Miami, will host BIKE / HACK / MAKE / DRANK, a three-part launch event for its new, shared Republic Bike fleet. The custom bikes, branded for program sponsors TigerDirect and MIAMade, will be made available as an added amenity to the entrepreneurial members of The LAB Miami.

As Miami’s most talked about breeding place for innovation and progressive startups, The LAB Miami is centrally-located in Miami’s budding Wynwood neighborhood, an up-and-coming area that still lacks a sense of pedestrian permeability. The area’s hot spots are still significantly spread out; therefore, Miami-based tech retail giant TigerDirect and local maker organization MIAMade came together to provide a sustainable transportation solution for the members of The LAB, the burgeoning creative campus that continues to propel Miami into the international tech spotlight. Republic Bike lent their expertise in developing innovative bike sharing solutions to put together a unique program for The Lab.

To launch The Labs bike program, Republic Bike decided to host the event BIKE / HACK / MAKE / DRANK, at The LAB Miami in an effort to raise awareness for the new program and to spread the word about the importance, convenience and joy of transportation alternatives.

Guests and participants are invited to bike on over at 12pm in time for the festivities to begin! The first part of the event will consist of a Hackathon where teams of two will compete to create a modified mechanism for the functionality of The LAB’s bike sharing system. The team with the most logical, innovative and easy-to-use modification will win a prize provided by TigerDirect and Republic Bike.

The MAKE part of the event will consist of a two-hour Make-a-thon with a bicycle twist, led by MIAMade. This special maker event will bring Miami’s maker community together to create and showcase a plethora of eclectic bicycle accessories with electronics, robotics, 3D printers and other popular maker apparatuses.

To wrap up the three-part launch, the DRANK portion will coincide with Second Saturday’s Art Walk. Stolen Spiced Rum cocktails and Duvel beer will be served to the public, as the official Republic Bike fleet of The LAB Miami will be revealed. All locals are invited to stop by and test out the new LAB bikes!
