July gave Team XYZ the opportunity to meet face to face with some of Southern California’s rising tech stars, reach tens of thousands of people at two of the nation’s largest pop-culture conventions, San Diego Comic-Con and Los Angeles Anime Expo, make inroads at China’s Global Domain Summit 2017, join with partners to educate Bangladeshi startups, and talk the ins and outs of security at Blackhat 2017.
San Diego Comic-Con is one of the biggest entertainment events in the United States, drawing well over 130,000 people to the San Diego Convention center for everything related to their favorite media. Our intrepid social media team made the journey and spread #GenXYZ to the convention center floor, all around downtown San Diego, and of course, over in the artist’s alley. For more about our Comic-Con experience and to see which artists we connected with, or some great shots of the #XYZsquad, read our Comic-Con recap blog and watch the recap video!
