2013 was a banner year for our fledgling series of gadget get-togethers, Engadget Live. Now that 2014 is here, we're running it back with a slate of events across the country that'll be better than ever. For the uninitiated, Engadget Live is all about bringing folks together to geek out on the latest gadgets -- and for us to connect with you, our readers, face-to-face (as opposed to face-to-screen). Naturally, it also gives you a chance to play with the latest gear from companies you know and love, and maybe from some companies you don't know, but should love. If that's not enough to entice you, perhaps the promise of free stuff will do the trick. We'll be giving away a bunch of that very same gear and tons of swag to attendees at every event.
The tour kicks off on Friday, June 20th in Austin, Texas -- with stops in Seattle on July 18th, Boston on August 22nd and Los Angeles on October 3rd. Just hit the linked locations above, and you can buy your tickets to any Engadget Live right now for FREE. Oh, and keep in mind our nationwide tour culminates in the third Engadget Expand conference in New York City on November 7-8.
We'll have more info to share about each Engadget Live (and Expand, too) as we get closer to each event, so keep your eye on Engadget.com to get all the latest updates. Still, you should mark your calendars now, and we'd recommend arriving early to every Live event -- the lines can be city blocks long. And, if you're a company interested in sponsoring or participating in any Engadget Live, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. See y'all there!
