With Moogfest set to kick-off May 19th, outlets like Forbes and Discovery took a look at how it is taking the best of traditional music festivals and technology conferences to create an entirely new type of festival experience.
Forbes wrote: “Moogfest stands apart in its ability to converge the intellectual and tactile, letting 30,000 attendees participate in hands-on, immersive events. It offers product demos without feeling like a big ad, making it a destination to display new inventions, collaborations and ideas.” And Discovery News said “the four-day festival has become a popular destination for fast-forward thinkers across the country and the world.”
For Earth Day 2016, MSNBC profiled ESI Design’s work on The Beacon at The Tower at PNC Plaza in Pittsburgh, considered the greenest office building in the world.
PKPR implemented a massively successful campaign for the launch of the Moleskine Smart Writing Set, a smart pen, notebook, and app that work in tandem to instantly digitize handwritten notes, creating text that can be edited and shared immediately via your phone, tablet, or laptop.

Moogfest CEO Adam Katz talked with the Huffington Post about how the Durham-based festival is combatting North Carolina’s anti-LGBT law and taking steps to ensure that all LGBT performers, speakers, and festival-goers are safe and supported at the four-day festival. This year’s festival will feature several notable appearances by trans women including Dr. Martine Rothblatt, founder of Sirius Radio, and hip-hop artist Mykki Blanco.
