The world is going through rapid change related to technology and it is affecting organizations across all industries. That’s why 175 professionals from 89 unique organizations gathered on November 6, 2019 at the Penn State University Great Valley Conference Center for the 7th annual TECH360, the Philly ‘burbs premier innovation business technology conference.
The theme of this year’s event was Transformation 360 – Evolving Business in a Digital World and focused on how organizations are changing the way they operate, serve their clients, and engage their workforce through the use of technology.
Attendees came to get up to speed on the latest developments in the tech sector and network with other tech professionals.
The day-long tech experience included both keynote presentations led by nationally recognized experts in artificial intelligence and cybersecurity, a panel discussion on enterprise transformation experiences and options for breakout sessions on topics including autism in the workplace, transforming transportation, digital transformation, IoT and more.
TECH360 is a program of the Innovative Technology Action Group (ITAG) and is organized by a volunteer planning committee.
The committee aspired to make TECH360 an inclusive and welcoming environment for all; adopting a Code of Conduct, identifying accommodating facilities at the venue, and implementing communication preference indicators.
Positive feedback is coming in from the attendees including how new business connections were made, requests to speak at or sponsor the event next year, and inquiries about how to get involved in ITAG!
