Passionate technology enthusiasts are your best marketers. They are also today’s hardest-to-reach consumers. What’s your plan for connecting with them this year?
The enthusiasts you’ve been trying to connect with will not only be at Expand NY, they will be there specifically to meet with you, kick the tires of your newest products and services and learn what your brand stands for.
No other major industry event is designed specifically to give you an opportunity to engage these hard-to-reach consumers that are so critical to your success.
At Engadget Expand you will have a truly unique opportunity to accomplish key marketing objectives that are unattainable via print and online marketing campaigns:
Engadget Expand is a celebration of the hardware, software and apps we use every day as well as the technologies that are going to continue to transform our lives for the next 10, 20, 30 years and beyond. For a recap of the phenomenally successful first Expand held in San Francisco in March 2013, don't miss our wrap-up post from the inaugural event.
We’ve designed our sponsorship offerings with an eye toward making sure participation is available for everyone from industry-leading hardware giants to the smallest startup looking to break through the noise.
Go big with our Platinum (up to 1500 sq. ft.) or Gold (up to 1000 sq. ft.) packages and you will be part of a very exclusive group of companies with room to create an immersive, interactive experience that attendees will be talking about for months after the event. As part of these packages, your logo will be bigger, more prominent and displayed in more places than any other sponsor, ensuring that it is seen by thousands of attendees and millions of enthusiasts tracking the event online.
Our Silver (400 sq. ft.), Bronze (200 sq. ft.) and Copper (100 sq. ft.) packages offer a still sizable amount of floor space to create experiences that will wow and engage Expand NY attendees.
We also have a special sponsorship package for qualified startups less than 3 years old and under 30 employees: Indie Corner is an extremely cost-effective way to have a footprint in the Expand exhibition hall and have a chance to get your product or service in front of one of the world's most engaged technology audiences. For more information on this sponsorship package, please see the section below on Indie Corner opportunities.
Whether it’s branding on the event website, printed program guide, mobile app, conference screens, or an on-stage thank you from an Engadget editor, every Expand NY sponsorship includes a package of marketing opportunities that guarantees your participation extends well beyond the show floor.
Platinum, Gold, and Silver sponsors also receive bonus participation at one Engadget+gdgt Live event of their choice. E+g events are an additional opportunity to connect with passionate tech enthusiasts in key markets around the country; each 4-hour event begins with one hour of press-exclusive access followed by three hours of engagement with a region's most influential technology consumers.
Space at Expand NY is limited so contact sponsors[at]engadget.com today to secure yours. You don’t want to be the company that wasn’t there!

Imagine if you could showcase your product or service - the one you've been working on 20 hours a day - to over 10,000 passionate consumers and hundreds of press at Expand NY, for under $2000!
The Indie Corner Zone at Expand NY makes it possible.
As much as new hardware from big tech brands excites us, we understand that’s just the tip of the innovation iceberg when it comes to the amazing new products and services being created for consumers by entrepreneurs across the country and around the world today.
We created Indie Corner because we want Engadget Expand NY to be a place where consumers can check out amazing new hardware, apps, software, services and more alongside the latest smartphones, tablets and laptops.
After all, what good is the newest device without that amazing app or service created by an innovative startup to be used on it? Or that awesome accessory that truly brings it to life? Simply put, we want Expand NY attendees to experience the full spectrum of amazing technology available to them today.
For under $2000, Indie Corner participants get a cocktail round table to demo products and are promoted in the program guide, Expand NY website and on signage at the event as part of a special area of the Expand NY show floor.
If you’re a startup looking to get influencers using and recommending your new product or service, you will not find a better, more affordable place to accomplish that than at Expand NY.
If you'd like more information on Indie Corner or would like to speak directly with a representative about the opportunity, please send an email to sponsors[at]engadget.com with “Indie Corner” in the subject line -- but hurry! We have a limited number of spots available for Indie Corner, and we want you to be a part of our show. If you're ready to secure your spot at Expand, click the Eventbrite signup button below:
