The South Florida Technology Alliance announced its 5th annual ITPalooza will take place on Thursday, Dec. 8, at a new venue, the Signature Grand, located at 6900 W State Road 84 in Davie.
ITPalooza is an annual gathering of South Florida's technology professionals, CIOs and CTOs, user groups, educators and companies. Anticipating more than 2,000 registrants, 30 speakers, 100 sponsors and 30 tech groups from across South Florida, it is primed to deliver unbelievable value to the South Florida Tech community.
This event is one of South Florida’s largest tech conferences and includes educational speaker tracks, a hiring fair, hackathon, Agile Group, CIO track, IT Expo, charity toy drive and after-party. ITPalooza will feature a dedicated Management Track in conjunction with the iCoast CIO Council and will focus on the unique needs of CIOs and other top-level IT executives. Last year, about 1,500 attended ITPalooza, then held at Nova Southeastern University (pictured above).
“ITPalooza 2016 is a celebration of technologists in South Florida,” said SFTA President and ITPalooza event chairman Rick Sebaly. “Connie Cabrera and her ITP Planning Committee have done a great job making this year’s event the best it can be.”
Registrations start at 8 AM and there will be a 9 AM keynote speech from Centrify. The event will also feature a second keynote at 5:00 PM featuring an executive from Amazon Web Services. The evening party and social event will commence at 6 PM.
