coolTECH 2010: See Technology Innovators At MOSI In Tampa On June 4

Emerging technologies at coolTECH 2010 include a patent-pending Halo Aircraft with vertical takeoff and landing, motion-activated video game technology, a digital pen and paper that captures handwritten data and a memory system for the memory-impaired that uses smartphone applications.

All that and more, plus Frank Farro, new technology research and development for Walt Disney Resorts and Parks, will be the keynote speaker at the June 4 event hosted by the Tampa Bay Technology Forum, from 9am-5pm at the Museum of Science and Industry in Tampa.

TBTF is central Florida's largest technology association and the coolTECH conference showcases emerging technologies, trends and innovations from Tampa Bay and surrounding areas.

"This year, we're looking forward to our keynote speaker, a Walt Disney executive, who will share how to build an innovative team with our attendees. We certainly expect it be a sell out," says Amy Norman, president and chief executive officer of TBTF.

More than 650 attendees are expected, including industry professionals, executives, entrepreneurs, investors and students studying in science, technology, engineering and math. Activities will include spotlight demonstration presentations, an IMAX Dome presentation  access to more than 400 exhibits at MOSI such as Disasterville and The Amazing You. Judges' awards will be presented to the most innovative exhibits at the conference and there will be live text voting by participants.

"Attendees this year can expect to see a wide array of technology sectors represented, particularly green and mobile technology. We'll have everything from electric vehicles to ground-breaking aircraft to mobile solutions that will improve your daily life at home and work. Each year, coolTECH grows, and we think our location this year, MOSI, is quite fitting," says Norman. "Attendees will not only have access to the coolTECH exhibits, but will also have access to MOSI exhibits and a special IMAX Dome presentation. We hope MOSI will be our partner for years to come."

Full-day registration for coolTECH 2010 is $60 for TBTF members and $80 for non-members. For more information, visit coolTECH's website or contact Kimberly Wander, events manager at or 813-341-8283, or text the word COOL to 24453 to receive the latest news and updates on coolTECH.
