  NEW YORK, NY, Jan 19 (MARKET WIRE) -- 
NY TECH DAY (www.NYTechDay.com), a revolutionary one-day expo created
specifically for New York City-based tech startups, is confirmed for
Thursday, April 19, 2012 in the Flatiron District. In line with the
openness of the NY tech community, Tech Day is free to attend.

    "We want to create an event that benefits startups of all sizes and gives
them the opportunity to directly interact with the community with a focus
on their individual needs -- they can demo a new product, recruit for
open positions, or just say hello to the tech community. The result has
transformed NY Tech Day into a 'psuedo-science fair' for startups," said
John Petersen, cofounder of NY Tech Day.

    Exhibiting startups will have an unprecedented chance to gain exposure,
publicity, talent and -- of course -- funding. The event will boast top
companies, investors, a roster of tech speakers and industry press.

    Over 200 startups are expected to showcase their companies, celebrating
the best of the burgeoning New York tech community. Additionally,
students from many of the top east coast universities will be amongst
those in attendance -- seeking opportunities to meet and interact with
the city's best and brightest innovators.

    "This has been a long time in the making, and we are thrilled to finally
unveil the details," said Petersen. "The response from startups, students
and investors has been tremendous... even before we've officially
announced the event!"

    NY Tech Day is formatted in two parts: the "Expo" and the "Award
Ceremony." The Expo will run from 10:00am - 4:00pm, and give exhibiting
startups the chance to meet members of the tech community head-on,
including investors, other prominent startups, potential hires, early
adopters, and members of the press.

    The Award Ceremony, held from 6:00pm - 8:00pm, will include a "State of
the NY Tech Community" discussion as well as the much-anticipated prize
presentations. The "Peoples' Choice Startup" winner will also have the
opportunity to demo in front of the whole tech community.

    While attendance is free, space is limited. To register to attend NY Tech
Day and for general information, please visit NYTechDay.com. To register
