Tech Bash to turn Marlins Park into a field of geeks Friday night


Gadgets and gamers and drones, oh my: Marlins Park will become a field of geeks Friday night as TigerDirect throws a Tech Bash for the community.

The TigerDirect Tech Bash, now in its fourth year and third at the park, will include more than 120 vendors, including Microsoft, Intel, Alienware and Vizio, showing off their latest technologies in interactive exhibits. There will also be a gaming area, a university section, product giveaways, entertainment and concessions, all in a carnival-like atmosphere, said Steven Leeds, director of marketing for TigerDirect, the Miami-based subsidiary of Systemax.

Tech Bash is free with advance registration, and attendance is expected to exceed last year’s total of 18,000 people. The hours, as well as the size of the event, have been extended.
