On October 16th techies around New York were treated to a new intimate experience. GetGeeked showcased a bevy of brands and allowed attendees an opportunity to interact directly with two dozen familiar brands like Lenovo, Sling, Boogie Board, Western Digital, and Martian Watches. But GetGeeked wasn’t just simply a exhibition. Tucked away behind a few curtains was a small section for conferences that were also being conducted. This was an opportunity to delve deeper into the various brands on display. Even though the lines might have been long, and the venue was kind of hard to get to—GetGeeked was a unique experience that place brands directly with consumers. Events like that are always hard to find and are sometimes left to an exclusive few. Plus, did I forget to mention that the event was overall FREE to attend?
The GetGeeked event is the brainchild of Barry Myers, the creator of gdgt Live and other popular tech related events. In anticipation of the event, RAGE Works took a moment to chat with Barry Myers in their Behind the Mic series. “Barry Myers is a tech industry luminary who has been a driving force in the New York tech event scene for some time”, stated Rich in his interview notes. Barry shared his trials, tribulations and triumphs not only in getting this event together but ensuring it was unique experience. Click here to listen to the entire interview.
