A User’s Guide To Disrupt SF 2013

Disrupt SF kicks off on Monday, September 9th. TechCrunch has put together an incredible array of offerings from our partners to make your Conference experience even better. As always, Disrupt SF will be a busy and boisterous event so use the following guide to get the most out of the show.

Official Email App: This year, Disrupt Battlefield Alumnus Ark is the Official Email App of the conference. To get in on their inbox experience, you can create an account here.

Photo Sponsor: One of the best things post-Disrupt is to thumb through the photos and you can do that thanks for DoMEn, our official photo sponsor. A widget with event photos can be found here.

Our conference app: This year we’re working with Crowd Compass for the event app. This app provides a wide universe of networking capabilities to the Disrupt SF community. Once signed up, you’ll be able to see who is attending the conference, request to add attendees as contacts, view the agenda, receive updates instantaneously regarding the conference and peruse the list of sponsors. You can download the app here or if you’re HTML5-inclined, here’s that version.

Startup Alley:  We have an amazing group of startups exhibiting in Startup Alley. Take a quick preview of the companies here. On this page you’ll find company descriptions, details about when the companies will be exhibiting, and contact information so you set up meetings or get in touch with the teams.

Hardware Alley Sponsor: A highlight of the conference this year is Hardware Alley, which is sponsored by Flextronics Lab IX. You can visit their booth adjacent to the Alley.

Official Browser: Our friends at Opera have developed an iPad browser that they’ll be showing off at Disrupt. Use it on Monday and Tuesday at the conference as a way to vote for Startup Alley Audience Choice Award and give Opera a test drive. Volunteers will be circling with said iPads and said browser to make it easy for you to vote. This is how democracy should work.

Conference transportation: Uber has offered Disruptors, who are first time users of the app, a $25 off code — it’s applied to the first ride. Visit the app or m.uber.com and enter in SFDisrupt13.

Watch Disrupt on the web: If you’re an armchair Disruptor, thanks to Ustream you’ll be able to view the conference action from the TechCrunch home page or SF Disrupt event page.

Disrupt SocialHub: The Disrupt SocialHub by LiveFyre pulls in yours, theirs and our live updates about the show. Tweets, Facebook posts, Instagram pics, Vine videos, trending posts and real-time speaker, startup and editorial perspective on the show.  Try it out by using #TCDisrupt

Twitter: You can follow and comment on the conference in the Twittersphere using the #TCDisrupt hashtag.

Registration: Eventbrite has long been a TechCrunch partner. If you purchased a ticket, you used Eventbrite. We love them and we think you will, too. If you haven’t purchased a ticket, what are you waiting for?

Special thanks: We’d like to extend a special thanks for Sequoia Capital for providing rehearsal space to our Battlefield companies.
