Amazing 3D TV, tiny computers, lightening fast smart phones, progressive rock and flashing lights were part of the BizTechday pre-party, Samsung Experience at the New York Entrepreneurs Business Network Event. This business networking event of over 200 entrepreneurs and professionals was held last Wednesday, 09/08, at the Time Warner building, Columbus Circle in NYC.
The Samsung Experience was essentially an interactive brand emporium that provided a creative experience through Samsung’s vision of digital convergence which captivate both our senses and imagination. We were able to explore the art of the possible within the new digital culture by touching, hearing, and engaging in the latest technology to discover a fusion of new ideas in art, entertainment, and design.
I was pleasantly surprised to see Tresa Chambers of Rovi, who I had not seen in over three years. She had us facinated by the exciting new look of their products like TotalGuide™ which enhances the consumer experience through rich TV listings, enhanced data and imagery, as well as extended multimedia. With the latest in search and recommendations technologies, TotalGuide™ helps consumers find favorite shows and discover new ones in a number of ways. It was rather interesting to hear what goes on behind the scenes to give us consumers such an essential tool like the TotalGuide™ .
With presentations on new products such as Hashable.com, an innovative and simple way to make our social introductions better, FavRav , allows to recommend your realtor, pediatrician, hair stylist or any other local business to your friends and Grouptabs , allows you to use your smartphone to check in at bars and restaurant to access group deals and discounts, New York Entrepreneurs Business Network (NYEBN) was able to keep the 200 plus attendees interested to the very end.
We look forward to the next event, BizTechDay New York Conference on September 24.
