Tampa based web design and development firm Magnetic was announced as a Finalist in two categories in the inaugural BizTech Innovation Awards hosted by the Tampa Bay Business Journal and the Tampa Bay Technology Forum that will take place on Thursday, March 17 at the Tampa Convention Center.
The BizTech Innovation Summit Expo & Awards will bring together local area businesses and technology vendors for this first annual event. The expo will include exhibitors providing products and services covering numerous areas such as software, hardware, consulting, IT, telecommunications, web services, mobile applications, and much more. The expo will be followed by an awards luncheon honoring Tampa Bay area businesses for their true innovation in key tech sectors, in social media, in collaboration with non-tech clients and for chief executive leadership.
The categories in which Magnetic was chosen are:
Best Collaboration (between technology firm and client) with World Endurance Sports for Ironman360.com. The e-commerce website is aimed towards triathletes and endurance sport athletes of all abilities. Triathletes from around the world are able to purchase their favorite swim, bike, and run products online at the new Ironman360.com. The site contains a fully-functioning shopping cart system which allows customers to browse and then purchase triathlon-related products from an inventory of several hundred products from the most well-known brands for Ironman triathletes. While shopping on the site, customers can navigate through the inventory by category, brand, or even by products that their favorite professional triathlete uses.
Magnetic recently was awarded the 2010 Silver W3 Award by the Interactive Academy of the Visual Arts for the Ironman360 website.
