The event features 100 wines presented at multiple destinations along a one-mile stretch of the famed Atlantic City Boardwalk. Insider access to rare and expensive wines and champagnes handpicked by expert and media personality Leslie Sbrocco plus gourmet bites, live music and breathtaking ocean views combine to create an only-in-Atlantic City spectacular.

The Atlantic City Alliance, the organization behind the successful "Do Anything. Do Everything. Do AC" campaign made the announcement at the destination marketing organizations' debut at the Whole Foods Market Grand Tasting Village at the Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival in Miami, Florida this weekend. The Alliance will return to the New York City Wine & Food Festival in October 2014.

"FOOD & WINE showcases the breadth and depth of AC's culinary offerings and brings our unique, outdoor wine festival to a national audience of foodies who might not have considered Atlantic City as a foodie destination," said Liza Cartmell Atlantic City Alliance President. "We decided to make this announcement at South Beach Wine & Food Festival because it is one of the premier food events in the country. Everyone in the food scene attends. Plus 80% of attendees are from AC's key market of New York."

Food and dining are core destination definers for AC. Acclaimed national chefs and locally sourced Jersey Fresh ingredients that are nourished by the sea as well as abundant local farmland and vineyards, AC serves up some of the freshest and tastiest seafood, produce, reds, whites and bubblies available along the eastern seaboard.

"FOOD & WINE is excited to partner with the Atlantic City Alliance on the second annual Boardwalk Wine Promenade," said Christina Grdovic, FOOD & WINE SVP/Publisher. "The setting of the seaside and the iconic Boardwalk provide a fantastic backdrop for the festival."

So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub.

Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.
