eMergeLast night was a buzz at the opening reception for the 3rd annual eMerge conference located at the iconic 1111 Lincoln Road garage. The attendees enjoyed food, drinks and music, but the real discussion centered on the provocative content scheduled over the next two days. Some examples include emerging markets and entrepreneurship in Cuba and technology in transportation.

The list of speakers reads like a “who’s who” and is likewise as innovative and diverse as the content itself featuring, Colin Powell, Monica Lewinsky, Tony Hawks, and fan favorites like Pitbull. The events will include the closing of the Nasdaq bell, as well as a Hackathon and Startup Showcase. The conference, with a record number of attendees that exceeded its cap of 13,000, is in line to top lasts years successes. We look forward to continue our reporting of the conference.
