geekieWe are so ready for the 1st annual Geekie Awards!  Taking over the main stage at Avalon Hollywood, the Geekie Awards promises a jam-packed day of geek infused art, culture, and cutting edge creations. The work presented at this inaugural conference will be full of inspiration ranging from the newbies to the legends.  Comics, short films, podcasts, games, websites, and toys will fill the Avalon for the award festival show which will also be streaming live for all those that didn’t grab tickets for this indie event.

Neon Roots is excited to be one of the sponsors of the first Geekie Awards as well as creating an Augmented Reality Game for the event.  From lanyards that blast robots to live performances and gaming demos, this is an event not to be missed. Besides all the hard work and innovative products that will be on display and celebrated, we’re also honored that Stan Lee will receive the 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award!

The Awards show begins at 7:30pm but you’ll want to check out the red carpet around 5:30pm and then be sure to hangout and schmooze at the after-party. Get your ticket and check out the list of finalists for the 2013 Geekie Awards here!
