The third annual ATC Tech Summit is right around the corner. Prepare for a day where every moment is dedicated to learning, networking with industry peers, and enjoying the vibrant journey into the future of technology.
ATC is hosting the Tech Summit on Thursday, February 29th, 2024, at the Summit Hotel in Cincinnati, OH.
Growing Beyond Expectations
Louie Hollmeyer, Director of Marketing at ATC, explained that this year’s summit will be better than ever. The move from Sabin Hall to the Summit Hotel for last year’s 2023 Tech Summit was driven by overwhelming growth: ATC outgrew its previous venue in just one year. The Summit Hotel offers a tremendous conference space, providing the perfect backdrop for a tech summit of this caliber.
Leap Day Extravaganza
Notably, this year’s summit falls on Leap Day, making it an even more extraordinary occasion. Last year, the summit welcomed over 150 attendees, and this year, 200+ tech enthusiasts are expected to attend for a day packed with innovation, education, and unparalleled networking opportunities.
Elevating Content and Expertise
Building on the success and excellent feedback received from the 2023 Summit, ATC is infusing even more topical content into each panel, with a special focus on data analytics and AI. As ATC’s focus areas encompass voice, network, cloud and security, this year’s discussions will go into the latest trends in these domains. Where applicable, every presenter is being asked to weave in their play and positioning on data and AI.
Key Highlights for 2024
Title Sponsor Returns
Zoom is back as the title sponsor, reinforcing its commitment to fostering innovation in collaboration with ATC. A crowd favorite, Brandon Knight, global head of channel CX at Zoom, will likely return this year as the keynote speaker.
Data and AI Panel Added to Agenda
This year’s summit will feature a dynamic Data and AI panel on the main stage right after the opening keynote.
Cybersecurity Keynote and Cyber Showdown Panel Discussion
The afternoon will feature an engaging cybersecurity keynote and panel discussion, adding a layer of depth to the summit’s diverse agenda.
Educational Breakout Sessions
Every breakout session—eight in total—is designed to be thoroughly educational: No sales pitches!
This year, ATC has reserved the entire 4th-floor conference space at the Summit Hotel, allowing for a dedicated main stage and four large breakout rooms. This promises to provide a streamlined flow and better wayfinding for an even more enriching experience.
The event opens with a complimentary up-scale lunch in the Summit Hotel Market located on the 4th floor. Last year’s popular carving station will be back.
ATC’s 3rd annual Tech Summit has incredible networking opportunities. Networking is at the core of the summit, offering a chance for attendees to learn from their peers and build valuable connections.
ATC views the summit as an opportunity to give back, aligning with its #BuildingIntoIT pledge to support the IT community in the region. This commitment extends beyond the summit to various local non-profits such as The Circuit and Technology First, where ATC has been long a long-time platinum and annual partner.
Technology Provider Appreciation Afterparty at Madtree Brewing
As an expression of gratitude to the summit’s generous sponsors, without whom the event wouldn’t be possible, to cap off the day, ATC is hosting an afterparty at Madtree Brewing. It’s a gesture of appreciation for the vibrant IT provider community that makes events like these possible.
A Must-Attend for IT Teams
ATC encourages IT teams to attend, highlighting the abundance of breakout sessions that allow teams to “divide and conquer,” ensuring they gain maximum insights from the diverse content available.
