IEEE Day 2014, a Worldwide Success

IEEE Day 2014 was held on Tuesday, 7 October, the fifth time in history when engineers worldwide celebrated the anniversary of the first time IEEE members gathered to share their technical ideas in 1884. While the world benefits from what's new, IEEE is focused on what’s next. Thus, this year's theme was "Leveraging Technology for a Better Tomorrow."

This year once again looked to IEEE members to partner with the IEEE Day Team in the role of ambassador. The response was overwhelming with over 100 active ambassadors compared to 35 in 2013. With their enthusiasm, engagement, and exceptional teamwork, the number of events held exceeded last year by 25%.

The photo contest was popular with more than 300 submitted photos and a total of 18,263 votes.

Social media played an important role with more than 37,000 Likes on Facebook, 900+ posts, 700+ Tweets, and #IEEEDay2014 and #Gofor5 had 411,112 and 100,364 impressions respectively.
