NEW YORK, May 8, 2018 -- TechDay will hold its seventh annual New York City show this Thursday, May 10th at Pier 94.
The event will allow those in attendance including thousands of early adopters, investors, journalists, developers, job seekers and corporate end-users the chance to see and experience the latest tech products and services from nearly 500 exhibiting startups.
These participating companies span across every industry and stage. Some exhibitors will be launching for the very first time at TechDay including App-App, Nofet and Global AI, while others have already grown into household names such as TomTom, X.AI and WeWork.
For one day only, these companies will give live demos of their latest offerings allowing the highly curated TechDay audience to be amongst the first to have access to the tech innovations of tomorrow.
In addition some of the most competitive accelerator programs will return to TechDay including Dreamit, MassChallenge and Techstars, as well as prominent startup influencers like NYCEDC, Built In NYC and Digital NYC.
Concurrent with the TechDay exposition is a conference component called TechDayTalks. TechDayTalks will spotlight industry experts including executives from Mastercard, Salesforce and Microsoft. They’ll share their knowledge on popular topics like AI, cryptocurrency, cybersecurity, economic forecasting and much more. The goal of these brief presentations is for attendees to improve their careers, bring new ideas back to their companies, and open their minds to new ways of thinking.
Finally, casting producers from Shark Tank will also be in attendance holding their official NYC open casting call. Both exhibitors and attendees will have the opportunity to pitch their ideas for the chance to appear on the show’s next season.
“This year’s New York event will be more powerful than ever before and truly give our attendees a taste of the future,” said Jasmine Hoffman, TechDay’s lead Event Director. “The many companies launching for the first time at TechDay not only allow for a dynamic event, but prove just how vibrant the NYC startup scene is and how it’s continuing to flourish...TechDay is a place where this progress is highlighted as well as accelerated.”
TechDay New York is the biggest event of its kind hosting hundreds of thousands of tech influencers since its inception in 2012 - seemingly growing in tandem with New York’s thriving tech ecosystem. Last year, 421 New York-based tech companies received funding, collectively raising more than $9.5 billion. The city has the second highest absolute number of early-stage investments in the world, trailing only Silicon Valley, and the 5th highest number of early-stage investment per startup.
