Today I had the privilege to attend the Vancouver tech conference with my friend Brandon. Because of our relationship with Fingerfoods we got to attend the event as long as we helped promote their app. I spent most of it at the finger foods stand demonstrating their app to people passing by and driving spheros (little rolling robot spheres). While doing this I met a large number of people and had some very interesting conversations.
I did get a chance to tour around the other exhibits though. I am still processing all of the different booths that I got to see.
Probably the coolest thing for me however was the number of news interviews and the general amount of interest the stand got. I myself got interviewed by three different new reporters from the Vancouver sun, CBC and global news!
Looking forward to coming back tomorrow, this time with business cards so I can set up relationships with the people that I get to talk with.
