Miami is great when it comes to putting on big shows and events, and the first ever eMerge Americas Conference was no different. EWM had the opportunity to experience it first hand. As sponsors, we were able to have a booth set up at the conference.
The tech event was a success, attracting more than 6,000 attendees. Entrepreneur Manny Medina is the visionary behind the entire event. Though, Miami isn’t yet in the same tech-talk mind space as Silicon Valley or Boston, eMerge did its job to put South Florida on the radar, he said. “It all starts with changing the mindset about Miami technology.”
Year two of eMerge Americas is already on the books: April 29-May 5, 2015, with the main conference again taking place at the Miami Beach Convention Center, Medina said. His goal next year: 10,000 attendees.
We’re excited for the future of Tech here in South Florida!
