iBeacons may be the key to the next technology revolution. It's a combination of hardware and software that allows a phone to know when they are near a "beacon." It allows companies to deliver highly location and contextually-aware content. It's most immediate applications are in retail, with Apple using it in all of its stores to know when you're there. It's also been deployed in most MLB stadiums to offer discounts on concessions or seat upgrades while you're at the stadium.
Christian Smith of Phone Halo, a company with over 6 years of experience using technology to help people keep track of their valuables, will be our main speaker. He will be followed by a showcase of companies that have used iBeacon in or as a part of their businesses.
