NEW YORK, Nov. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- TechDay, a growing series of multinational tech conferences, has officially launched its seventh annual New York show, set to be held at Pier 94 on May 10th, 2018.
TechDay is a single day expo held in New York City, London and Los Angeles, and is geared towards connecting tech startups to all the resources they need to grow. Exhibitors feature a wide range of companies, including those that use the event as a launchpad, to tech giants like Uber, Vimeo, Digital Ocean and Oracle.
The event attracts a highly curated audience made up of executives from leading accelerator programs, seasoned investors, renowned members of the press, early adopters, corporate end-users and top tech talent.
As TechDay New York is the series' largest and most impactful event, its return has generated immense excitement from the tech community. Columbia Business School, Digital NYC and XRC Labs have already signed on as partners. In addition, numerous companies including Flatiron Health, Ytel and Fareportal all have registered as exhibitors even prior to the event's official launch earlier today.
"The tremendous enthusiasm for this year's TechDay New York is not only a testament to the success of our past events, but also to the growth of the community at large," said Sharon Lieberman, TechDay's COO. "Due to the continued rise and progress of New York entrepreneurs, our event has been able to grow significantly year-to-year in near perfect tandem. In that sense, TechDay is both a reflection of the tech ecosystem's forward momentum, as well as a space for its continued growth."
In recent years, New York City has become a major tech hub. 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.
Since its inception in 2010, TechDay has demonstrated its ability to both support and galvanize this rapidly growing community. Last year the event's attendees represented over $190 billion in assets under management, and this year that number is expected to reach $240 billion. Surveys also reveal that 30% of attendees discover new career opportunities, and 80% gain access to new business opportunities or uncover new products.
TechDay New York 2018 will welcome 500 startups as exhibitors, 30 top accelerators, and 20,000 distinguished tech influencers. You can find more information at https://techdayhq.com/new-york and register at https://techdayhq.com/new-york/register.
