Being their third year powering SMW, our friends at Nokia have really come to SMW NYC with some amazing ideas around engaging our audience.
Nokia is no stranger to our SMW NYC community- and we love having them here! In addition to powering our mobile app, SMW Live and SMW RealTime so you can truly engage on numerous levels, they are making their presence known. Starting off with offering Nokia Lumia 920 trials to our community, Nokia x SMW NYC got running early, and isn’t letting up. Making sure the week begins and ends with a bang, Nokia is one of the main forces behind the Opening & Closing Parties. Given their past with us, we’re expecting some fun surprises for the attendees…
Nokia is also making sure SMW NYC attendees don’t miss a beat with an incredible Simulcast set-up at the Global HQ. Streaming events from all over SMW13 and SMWNYC with incredible Monster Wireless Headsets, if you’re nearby, you want to see this. You can also get powered up by using the Nokia Charging Station- you know your phones and computers need it.
But don’t forget to swing by their Photo Lab to see the power of the PureView Camera on the latest Nokia Lumia 920’s. Don’t worry, we’ll be sending them to your FaceBook profiles to share… Speaking of photos, Nokia has partnered to bring the 1197 Mobile Photography Conference to SMW NYC. With 3 days of programming and an interactive gallery, it’s the perfect place for you if you love your camera, your phone and combining the two.
Want to learn something? Nokia #SmarterEveryday is making sure you get the most of your experience by providing the Master Classroom at Global HQ, letting you get hands-on learning from some of the best in the biz.
