They’re doing a lot of building in Moscow and a lot of networking in NY but what are you up to today? Holler at the Hound if you’re on the hunt for something that provides opportunity and excitement. There’s a good chance we have a listing for an event in your industry coming up in the near future, and a pretty good chance you can get your boss to spring for it. It happens many times every day.
Meantime, maybe one of these events applies to you.
There’s a flurry of activity in Moscow for the rest of the week as Mosbuild+ gets underway. This multifaceted extravaganza consists of a slew of events covering every conceivable part of the construction & building industry. These events include STONEX, Plumbing & Pipes, Lighting & Electrics, Country Construction, Building Materials & Equipment, and WindowBuild.
CIO Perspectives is held in nine major cities each year and hits New York today. It’s an important gathering of CIO’s and senior IT professionals that guarantees a potent mix of peer-to-peer networking, workshops, seminars and more.
Philadelphia hosts today’s Emerging Technologies for the Enterprise Conference, which offers up-to-the-minute insights for developers, designers, architects and IT executives.
The 2nd International Automotive Today & Tomorrow Conference isn’t exactly an opportunity for automakers to brag about their coolest new prototypes (if you’re interested in that, check out this Wired article that lists some of the neatest tech innovations at this year’s NY Auto Show). This event is a gathering of minds in development, sustainability and R&D held in Istanbul. The goal is to discuss the global issues affecting the auto industry and drive it into the future with confidence and success.
The IAB Digital Video Marketplace boasts “content… without borders.” Facing the challenges of content creators in the digital video marketplace head-on while embracing the infinite opportunities available is the aim here. Certainly the creative side would be a huge obstacle to overcome, but this event also takes a look at the business end of the industry, making for a packed agenda.
Remember Tricorders on Star Trek? No? That’s OK. They were handheld devices that allowed the medic to scan a person for injuries or a person to scan their surroundings for just about anything. According to this Yahoo! report, these things are damn close to becoming reality. And we all know how awesome it is when stuff from SciFi movies becomes reality.
The re-release of Titanic in 3D seems to be the first thing James Cameron has ever done that isn’t completely crushing everything else, then doing an endzone dance on the competition’s face. It opened in 3rd this weekend at the box office. Perhaps this lends some credence to the vocal minority claiming that re-releasing movies after converting them to 3D isn’t a great idea?
Can astronomers make a map of the Universe? Apparently. There’s some pretty heady science stuff involved, but the basic idea is that they created a theoretical image of what our Universe looks like. Neeeeeat.
