Breakaway recently participated in Doug Newcomb’s Connected Car Conference (C3) in NYC! Thought leaders who spoke and exhibited at the show included the AAA, Pioneer, Hyundai, and QNX Software Systems. QNX Software Systems showcased its latest technology concept car based on a Maserati Quattroporte. Check out the pictures below of press getting demos of QNX Software Systems’ platform in action in the car along with Breakaway AE Tricia Nugent. Be sure to read Doug’s recap of the panel “Tackling Connected Car Security and Privacy Concerns,” which included Derek Kuhn of BlackBerry Technology Solutions.
I recently attended the International Motor Press Association 2015 Conference at the Automotive Education Center in Whitestone, NY. The theme of the conference was “Media, Monetization and You: The Future of Automotive Media,” and it shared insights on all things media – from using social apps, to creating brand authenticity, to monetizing your content.
The TV of Tomorrow (TVOT) San Francisco Show is a wrap! Set at the gorgeous Golden Gate Club in San Francisco’s Presidio, TVOT, produced by Tracy Swedlow, founder of InterativeTV Today [itvt], brought speakers and attendees from throughout the U.S. to share experiences and wisdom around the future of television. Breakaway is the exclusive marketing and PR partner for TVOT, and we look forward to the event each year. This year’s show covered everything from television advertising to YouTube to understanding what virtual reality brings to the table.
As today marks the end of my internship at Breakaway Communications, I have been reflecting on my experience as an intern for a technology public relations firm. It was just five weeks ago that I was in my last few weeks as a high school senior whose last assignment before graduation was an internship to give me a “real-world” look at what is to come. With a passion for technology and cars, PR opened my eyes to some new experiences like learning tech lingo, being introduced to new ways to become immersed in the tech world and finding new companies to follow. As an added bonus, I got to spend my days in New York City!
