The IT Symposium provides the regions IT leaders an opportunity to gather for a day of networking, collaboration, and knowledge-transfer through peer-led keynotes, breakouts, panels, and networking sessions.

The Utah IT Symposium is the region’s premier single-day event designed for the IT executive community.

Sponsoring vendors of the IT Symposium will have the opportunity to share information about problem-solving technology that local executives can use in their day-to-day business practices.

Due to the rapid changes in technology and the constantly evolving business climate, it’s more important than ever to stay current with trends, strategies, and digital solutions. The rapid pace of your work environment is no longer conducive to week-long tech expos and tradeshows taking place hundreds of miles away; that’s why attendance to the Utah IT Symposium is so beneficial. You get all the advantages of a national event without any of the travel or excessive time out of the office. In addition, the peer group is local, which means that you can build relationships with familiar faces to help you navigate your way through the technology landscape.

The opening keynote speaker this year is Sara Jones, President of InclusionPro. In “How The Best Leaders Build Diverse and Winning Teams”, Sara will explain how to shift your mindset, how to engage the talent around you, and how to apply an inclusive lens to the work of building your team culture. Sara provides practical takeaways and ideas on how leaders can focus on performance-driven inclusive behaviors.

After lunch, author and speaker Tom Triumph will take the stage with a talk titled “The Future of IT: Business and Technology Luminaries On The Next 20 Years”. This discussion distills the thinking from tech and business luminaries as to the ways in which information technology will impact IT executives and management over the next two decades.

The closing keynote this year is Braintrace’s Senior Director of Cyber-Threat Intelligence, Aaron Sherman. Aaron’s guided tour of the dark underbelly of the internet will shine a light on criminal marketplaces and forums hiding in the shadows. This session will show where and how leaked data is stored and trafficked in the underbelly of the internet. Aaron provides information on how that data is leveraged to target organizations, while also explaining simple and safe ways to explore these sites and use the intelligence gained to protect your organization and clients.

In addition, the IT Symposium includes multiple breakout sessions led by actual IT practitioners (instead of vendor-led product pitches).

Sponsoring vendors of the IT Symposium will have the opportunity to share information about problem-solving technology that local executives can use in their day-to-day business practices. Most sponsors use this opportunity to present themselves as experts who can be utilized to help with the issues that present themselves in the workplace. Vendors will also be recognized as organizations committed to supporting and helping grow the region's IT industry.

A limited number of sponsorship opportunities are still available, giving vendors the perfect opportunity to get face to face with top local business leaders. Non-sponsoring vendors, consultants, or sales representatives are NOT ALLOWED to register or attend, which is beneficial not only for our attendees, but also for our sponsors underwriting the event.
