Bitcoin Pavilion at TigerDirect Tech Bash 2014

On Friday, November 7th, thousands will crowd Marlins Park to sample next generation gadgets at TigerDirect's third annual Tech Bash. This year, the BitPay-sponsored Bitcoin Pavilion will offer a one-stop solution for getting started with digital currency. The Pavilion will host five bitcoin companies, showcasing a comprehensive consumer experience for TigerDirect's Tech Bash attendees.

With representatives from BitStop, Pheeva, Bitmain Technologies, Nimbus Mining, and yBitcoin, our Bitcoin Pavillion will draw attendees seeking to learn about Bitcoin, download their first wallet, purchase their first bits, and sample a full suite of mining options for consumers.

TigerDirect expects over 15,000 attendees for this year's Tech Bash. With pop-up stores throughout Marlins Park, tech lovers will be able to spend bitcoin on gadgets and products in-person. By introducing this audience to bitcoin through the combined efforts of the BitPay team and our Bitcoin Pavilion partners, we hope to equip expo goers with bitcoin expertise just in time for holiday shopping.
