Agency Brings in Partners Including Amazon, Google, ESPN, Shazam, Onswipe and Shopkick to Provide First-Hand Look at Mobile Technology, Innovation and Advertising in Action

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - July 01, 2013) -  Horizon Media, the fastest growing entrepreneurial media services agency in the world, hosted its Mobile Science Fair last week as part of an ongoing series of forward-thinking initiatives created by the company to drive conversation and learning about the mobile arena. In a continued move to keep clients and employees on the cusp of innovation, the agency curated a diverse set of leading players in the mobile space to provide attendees with a hands-on experience of the latest initiatives and advances in mobile technology. The latest in Horizon Media's "mobilcation" series, the event was held at its New York headquarters on Wednesday, June 26, and attended by over 40 clients from brands including Vonage, Sleepy's, A+ E Networks and VH1, in addition to Horizon Media's 700 New York employees.

"We all know the importance of these little devices that we carry in our pockets," said Bill Koenigsberg, President, CEO and Founder of Horizon Media. "We cultivated a dynamic atmosphere for our clients and staff to encourage innovative ideas to flourish by providing up-to-date information and access to the right partners."

The event was designed to allow direct access to a diverse group of vibrant leaders across the mobile ecosystem. Attendees were invited to self-explore new opportunities and have one-on-one conversations with industry leaders to learn more about how the mobile landscape is evolving. Partners including Ad Colony, Amazon, AT&T, Flipboard, OnSwipe, Rovio, ESPN, The Weather Channel and Viacom had an energetic presence mapped out throughout Horizon Media's breath-taking 200,000 square foot office.

"It was a unique opportunity for Horizon and yet another way we can stay ahead of the curve and exchange ideas with some of the industry's finest," said Sarah Bachman, Director of Mobile at Horizon Media.

Between posing with a man in a space suit at AdColony's station, experimenting with Google Glass, checking out AT&T AdWorks, and playing Angry Birds with Rovio, attendees were able to speak with major players in the industry about opportunities in the mobile field. The event presented yet another opportunity for Horizon Media's clients and employees to gain new insights about the constantly evolving technology and fresh opportunities in an entertaining mobile-centric environment. The next instalment of Horizon Media's #HMIMOBILCATION series will be announced in the Fall.
