With a vision of establishing Miami as the technology hub for Latin America, a local non-profit group is planning to launch a major, annual conference here, beginning next year.
Called “eMerge Americas,” it’s created by the Technology Foundation of the Americas and is expected to bring the leading information technology companies in the world to South Florida to showcase their offerings to thousands of technology industry insiders from across the hemisphere.
Scheduled for May 4-6, 2014 at the Miami Beach Convention Center, the conference will serve as a platform for hundreds of innovative entrepreneurs and startups from throughout the region to network with investors and industry luminaries, according to the Technology Foundation of the Americas, a non-profit firm spearheaded by Manny Medina, who serves as chairman. Medina is also founding and managing partner of Medina Capital, a private equity firm that invests in technology companies.
