              What attendees from last year said

              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
              I am a full-time faculty member of Delaware County Community College.  I attended the Tech360 conference in November along with a colleague and we thought it was awesome!  So awesome in fact that we are proposing to bring a bus load of students to the conference in 2017.
              Glenys GustinProfessor @ Delaware County Community College
              As IT professionals we can never have enough information about how to best do our work and anticipate what is coming next; the Tech360 conference is extremely valuable and educational! We sent 14 participants from Unisys to the event in 2016 and plan to participate again this year.
              Steven KossDistinguished Engineer and Chief Architect @ Unisys
              2017 will be my third Tech360, I just keep coming back for more and continue to be impressed by the knowledge, candor and insightfulness of the speakers. Don’t miss it!

              I am proud to have been part of Tech360’s planning committee – this collaborative effort resulted in an event which was extremely insightful and well worth the time. Tech360 delivered excellent speakers on a variety of relevant topics. I am excited about getting back to work to implement the things I learned.
