        Tech360 was a really exciting event with tech and business people consisting of a very diverse background. Not only were the content and speakers very informative and interesting, but the networking was valuable and resulting in several follow up meetings with people I met that day.
        Brian DainisCEO @ Curotec
        Kudos to the Tech360 planning team! Another flawless execution of a great technology conference. The topics were interesting and the speakers were engaging. I really enjoyed mingling with people from other companies, especially during the networking event. It was also a great opportunity for several Vanguard employees to attend for the first time since it’s so conveniently located in our corporate center.
        Linda TitanichSenior Data Governance Specialist & STEM Advocate @ Vanguard
        Each year Tech360 grows, as the local tech economy expands and professionals want to make connections with more area technology experts. For a one-day tech conference, Tech360 impressively packs knowledge and networking into multiple tracks, geared toward the tech executive, engineers, and entrepreneurs. You’ll see everything from enterprise experience to startup idea, business analysis to technological how-to, all delivered with professional skill and an approachable attitude.
