CES ‘18 Eureka Park

We kicked off our 2018 in Las Vegas at CES, the world’s biggest tech conference! Hundreds of start-up companies showcased their cutting edge products in Eureka Park - where we were on site with Indiegogo and their partners Arrow and Ingram Micro.  The goal was to create an open space to engage entrepreneurs and showcase Indiegogo’s complete concept-to-market solution. Here are some highlights. For the full story, visit our sister company, Rubik Marketing.


Indiegogo’s open concept space allowed visitors to walk around and learn about the featured products. A pop-up meeting room allowed a private space for Indiegogo investors, inventors, and executives to talk. Guests could rest their feet and relax in the famous “gogo chairs,” back by popular demand for the second year in a row.



An interactive wall showcased successful flash-funded Indiegogo products that utilized Arrow technology. Multiple spots on the wall used conductive paint which reacted when touched and prompts the projectors to change images/information. The arrow team connected with guests and encouraged innovation by giving out free arduinos!



For Ingram Micro’s space we created a lounge-like atmosphere. Entrepreneurs were able to meet with experts who could answer all of their shipping, handling, and distribution questions. The space offered the perfect setting for collaboration!


Mobile World Congress Americas

Mates were on site in San Francisco for Mobile World Congress (MWC) Americas Conference for two client activations. While the convention was spread across all Moscone buildings, our Mates were in the South Hall for Internet of Things Consortium (IoTC) and Arrow Electronics.

IoTC: located in 4YFN - the showcase for more than 140 startups that always attracts strong traffic to the area. Within the IoTC zone were some great companies including Indiegogo, TechStars, Chirp, Cirrent and Buddy Platform. With a turnkey set-up, the companies were able to start networking upon arrival.

Arrow was close by with a larger footprint. The 20x20 booth, designed by our sister company, Rubik Marketing featured sleek demo stations and their amazing Corvette (which has an amazing story behind it). Sharp edges and bold architectural lines, with classic black and white brand colors created a polished environment. And with storage in each, it was functional as well as visually appealing.
