Here's what you need to know about Engadget Expand, so far

We've talked a lot about Engadget Expand so far (you know, that free event we're holding at the Javits Center in NYC on November 7th and 8th). It's time we got you caught up on who's speaking (and when), who's exhibiting on the show floor, what's up with Insert Coin and finally, the winner of our 'In The City' sweepstakes. Let's get started.

What's happening when?

Our complete schedule of everything happening during our two-day Expand event is live and ready for your stalking. Find out who's speaking when, what's happening with workshops and what to expect from our Insert Coin competition. View the full schedule here.

Who's showing off the latest in technology?

So far we've announced OnePlus, GizmoSphere and Suitable Technologies as some of the exhibitors doing demos on the show floor. Today, we're adding a few more to the lineup:

  • Matterport will show off its 3D capture system, which lets anyone create 3D models of real-world spaces to share online. For example, a realtor can show off a home online in a much more immersive way.

  • Huawei was well represented at each of our Engadget Live events this year, so it's no surprise we'll see its line of Ascend smartphones at Expand!

  • GIROPTIC made the world's first full HD 360-degree camera (after a successful Kickstarter campaign) and will let Expand attendees try it out.

Who's coming to the Expand stage?

Musician and producer RJD2, Adafruit's Becky Stern, Paul Eremenko of Google's Project Ara, Mars One's Bas Lansdorp and DARPA's Arati Prabhakar are some of the amazing experts we've announced thus far. Our complete lineup of speakers can be found in the gallery above or on our Expand microsite.

What's up with Insert Coin?

We need your help narrowing down our semi-finalists who will get a trip to NYC and a shot at the big prize -- either our Judge's Choice or Reader's Choice awards at Expand. Meet our current contenders right here and be sure to cast your vote by 11:59PM ET on October 15th.

Who won our 'In The City' sweepstakes?

Congratulations to Brady Lamb, who we're flying from Ames, Iowa to NYC for the big event in November. We're also sending Chromecasts to our 10 runner-ups. Congratulations, folks!

What's next?

We'll announce even more speakers, exhibitors and maybe even a contest real soon. Until then, if you're going to be in the New York area November 7-8, get your tickets here. If not, keep it locked here on throughout that weekend so you don't miss a thing.
