Yamamoto Sponsors Eyeo Festival

MINNEAPOLIS — May 22, 2012 — Minneapolis agency Yamamoto is a sponsoring partner for the second-annual Eyeo Festival, a bar-raising innovation summit featuring the industry’s brightest coders, data viz pros, designers and artists.

“The work Eyeo is doing to take collaboration in the creative tech space to a new level is truly inspiring,” reports Yamamoto CEO Kathy McCuskey. “Cross-pollinating with thinkers of this caliber is essential for solving the kinds of 21st-Century problems our clients are facing every day. We’re excited to partner with the organization to make sure the most important innovations of tomorrow get off on the right foot today.”

Debuting in 2011, the Eyeo Festival’s mission is “Converge to Inspire.” The festival bills itself as “three days of inspirational talks, demos, and labs and plenty of opportunities to connect with people whose extraordinary creations are pushing the envelope. The line up is amazing. 40 brilliant individuals, one amazing collection of talent and insight.” 

“The organizers of the Eyeo Festival do a phenomenal job of bringing the best and brightest talent in the world of data visualization,” Reports Paul Saarinen, Direct of Digital Strategy for Yamamoto. “It's a must-attend event for anyone interested in communicating ideas with Big Data.”

Now in its second year, the Eyeo Festival is extremely popular in the technology and design sector. When tickets went on sale for this year’s event, they were completely sold out within 8 hours. There is a waiting list for those still interested in attending.
