While having a fishbowl ring toss might be challenging in the midst of a sea of electrical plugs, you will have the opportunity to check out and play with some amazing new technology at booths small and big: sensors and 360 video! A 21st century climate almanac! Virtual reality! Livestreaming!

Plus there’s the Bullring, the stage area in the Midway with its own programming. Here, you’ll see presentations about new digital platform experiences! Creating professional video broadcasts with just a phone! Making beautiful story layouts without coding! Changing the culture in the newsroom! And so much more.

Trying to figure out the tools and products to take your work to the next level? This is the place to really explore what companies and organizations have to offer, ranging all the way from tiny start-ups unveiling their products at ONA16 to the huge players out of Silicon Valley.

In the coming weeks, we’ll be posting the Midway program. Take a look at the Midway program from ONA15 to get a sense of how many inspiring and wonderful things we’ll be hosting in this year’s space.  As you plan your three days in Denver, you’re definitely going to want to plan several visits here.
