PRESS AND MEDIA BUZZ
"Tim came on board to invigorate the social media strategy for the DEMO conference.... and invigorate he did - taking DEMO to heights never experienced by a live event! Tim applied an encyclopedia of social media knowledge to our efforts and advanced our reach 100 fold in a matter of months developing and distributing a cohesive mix of photo, video and text-based content into the social stream that engaged and created a viral buzz reaching 30 million people around the world. I would recommend Tim Reha to any organization wanting to leverage the real opportunity that social media can provide through a team that knows what it is talking about and, more importantly, can back it up with flawless execution." - Michael Garity, IDG / DEMO

From 2013-2016 Tim teamed up with Robin Raskin and Jill Gilbert to host and produce the "Digital Health Live" Show at CES. The plan was to deploy a realtime media team that worked 24X7 to spearhead all social media, photography, video interviews and press content feeds.

Tim hosted dozens of community events and then teamed up with the Khronos Group to create a series of "OpenXR" events with Valve, Unreal, HTC Vive and hundreds of technology hackers. The lucky ones that found the "Golden Ticket" to the CNDY Factory left with smi)es.
