Next month the first Portland Digital eXperience conference will take place in conjunction with the well-established MusicFest NW (MFNW). The conference is organized by Rick Turoczy, the driving force behind Silicon Florist and co-founder of P.I.E. It brings together creative thinkers who are focused in the digital and tech space from near and far to discuss current trends and what’s next. The speaker list includes folks from start-up successes Tumblr, Flipboard, Simple and Urban Airship as well as such music industry entities as Spotify, Rumblefish and Shazam. We’re looking forward to hearing from these industry leaders and sharing ideas with fellow attendees, then hitting up MFNW shows in the evenings. More information about PDX can be found here.
