EVENT WATCH: xPotomac Takes On Wearable TechFebruary 27, 2014
Washington DC is known for a lot of things; historic monuments, cherry blossoms, politics (anyone else still binge-watching Netflix’s House of Cards?). But one thing you might not know about Washington DC, is that it is quickly rising as one of the tech-savviest and fastest-growing startup cities in the nation. Given this information, we want to talk about something else people are buzzing about this season: Washington D.C.’s upcoming xPotomac 2014 event.
Held at the historic Copley Hall at Georgetown University, and hosted by Georgetown University’s renowned Communication Culture & Technology Program (Georgetown CCT), xPotomac will be taking place this Friday, February 28th. And what makes this the event to watch is that it will feature some of the most influential media technology trends that are impacting social media marketing strategy and opportunities. Put more simply: WEARABLE TECH! (squeal!).
Of course, we plan on being there and providing our world-famous Twitter Wall Event Displays to keep attendees engaged in real-time conversation. We’ll even be featuring Zoomph leaderboards to add a little social media competition for our favorite tech-geeks.
But we’re personally psyched to see groundbreaking leaders of industry like Robert Scoble and Shel Israel, co-authors of the book, Age of Context: Mobile, Sensors, Data and the Future of Privacy talk about the importance of context in everything from social media to the personal, wearable devices that keep us connected. And between the latest innovations like Google Glass, FitBit, and the litany of Smart Watches now on the market, we can’t wait to see the insight that xPotomac 2014 has in store from speakers like Geoff Livingston, Peter Corbett, Toby Bloomberg, Jim Long, Danielle Brigida, Allyson Kapin, and Lauren Varagas.
So adjust your Google Glass, connect your Pebble watch, measure your Nike+ fuel points, and start counting your ZPoints. But most of all, get ready to live-tweet and check in on the conversation tomorrow at #xPotomac14.
