Just four days before the Minnesota Vikings took the field at U.S. Bank Stadium for their first regular-season game, there was something very different occupying the turf: Marco's 2016 Tech Tradeshow. Whether you missed the event or are simply looking to relive the day, I’m recapping what happened when we took technology to the end zone.
2016 Tech Tradeshow
The event itself included over 600 attendees, with 116 vendors and 37 exhibitor booths filling the field. Throughout the day, there was plenty of space for humor and playfulness among the exhibitor booths and 20 breakout sessions. All the while attendees learned about current and upcoming technology trends.
Although you truly had to be there in order to feel the sheer enormity of the event, here’s a brief highlight video:
Game Day Digital Display
Our speakers presented on a digital display spanning more than 8,100 square feet. Adding to the visual display was the demonstration of the stadium’s sound and audio. Being one of the largest digital displays in all of the NFL contributed to attendees seeing the largest PowerPoint of their lives.
The tech tradeshow’s 20 breakout sessions included speakers from industry leaders throughout the United States. Where available, you may view the session presentations by clicking on the company name:

Tech Tradeshow Highlights
Beyond the demonstrations of current and upcoming technology trends, we had even more in store for our attendees. Over $25,000 worth of prizes were given away. One lucky attendee even walked away with two tickets to see the Vikings' season opener game where they played host (and won!) to the Green Bay Packers at U.S. Bank Stadium.
