Best Buy Is Back and Bigger Than Ever, as Presenting Sponsor!

Doug French2018 Dad 2.0 Summit, Announcements, Sponsor, Uncategorized

It’s a great thing when brands who’ve worked with us for years affirm their influencer strategy by signing on for another year–or in this case, a fourth year, as Best Buy has for Dad 2.018. But do you know what’s better? When they jump up a notch from Official to Presenting Sponsor!

And since we’re meeting on Super Bowl Sunday once again, Best Buy will be showing us how they’re taking their tech expertise (if techspertise isn’t a word, it should be) to select NFL playoff cities around the country in the form of their ultimate tailgate vehicle, the TechZone!

The #BestBuyTechZone is a massive entertainment and tech mecca on wheels, dedicated to helping fans interact with the big game as never before, with 4K Ultra HD TVs, game systems, and other smart home tech, complete with the In-Home Advisors and Geek Squad Agents who are dedicated to make sure it all works seamlessly. And specifically for us, Best Buy will be re-creating a uniquely designed replica TechZone in their Sponsor Suite!

And as you might have figured out from the photo, Best Buy is organizing another spectacular Thursday afternoon drone flying event, complete with a spread of tasty N’awlins delicacies (think crawfish pouting and caramel bread pudding, for a start) just 10 minutes away, overlooking the Mighty Mississippi! We’ll all be flying the DJI – Mavic Pro Quadcopter, which generates stunning aerial 4K video during 30 minutes of flight time and obstacle avoidance (see more details here), and if you’re one of the attendees, you could take one home!

This event is limited to the first 50 signups, and we’ll be announcing the details (and opening the EventBrite page) next week. Watch this space, along with Facebook and Twitter, for details on how you can come along!
