NY Tech Summit 2017 Hot Topics Forecast

Posted on 11/04/2016

The first snowfall has hit Upstate New York – which has many of us reminiscing about the warm summer days that came and went so quickly. It may be some time before we see t-shirt weather again, but having something to look forward to may soften the blow of shoveling the driveway all winter.

Join a community of IT professionals as they kick off their summer ’17 at NY Tech Summit, the premier business-driven technology event of the Northeast. The 13th annual conference is set to take place on June 7-9, 2017 at Turning Stone Resort & Casino.


Hot Topics to Warm Up Your Winter

The NY Tech Summit conference will focus on a variety of hot topics: corporate awareness, cloud strategies, IT evolution and transformational leadership. These topics will dictate the types of content the conference provides.

This content will help guide your organization in the right direction as it works to face common challenges in the IT world.

We have come to NY Tech Summit for four years now and my team and I get a good variety of technical, business, and strategic sessions to complement our work objectives. I like that there is a balance of end users, consultants, and vendors to present and facilitate the sessions. The interaction is candid and engaging, but not a sales pitch. Being a regional conference helps, it is the right amount of time and location for a couple days to reenergize my team and refocus on our objectives. There seems to be quite a bit of peer discussion with a smaller conference, which I like.
