KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (PRWEB) November 06, 2020
The Knoxville Technology Council (KTech), in partnership with the Innov865 Alliance and the Knoxville Entrepreneur Center, is hosting the first annual KTech Pulse Technology Summit on November 12. This fast-paced virtual event will celebrate the technologies and partnerships driving innovation in East Tennessee and beyond.
“After a successful first year, we wanted to highlight the year’s achievements, look ahead to what’s next, and give attendees the chance to hear from innovative companies on key initiatives shaping the technology landscape,” said John McNeely, KTech co-founder and President. “Attendees will come away informed and excited about what’s happening in our region and the promising future for tech before us.”
Sponsored by Google Cloud and Verizon, KTech Pulse will provide attendees with a wealth of information and the opportunity to participate in lively Q&A and network with fellow technology leaders and entrepreneurs.
Presentations will include an update on Verizon 5G and the Future of Everything by Majid Khan, Verizon’s Managing Director of Strategy and Business Development for Network Engineering and Technology nationwide. Alberto Arechiga, Enterprise Account Executive with Google, will discuss the latest developments on the Google Cloud Platform that have made it the fastest growing cloud provider.
Other speakers will highlight Knoxville’s role as a hub for technology and innovation in the region, new initiatives KTech will be launching in 2021, and ways that local companies can get involved.
“I am extremely proud of our first year successes at KTech. The KTech board and its members have navigated through what has been a year of constant challenges,” said Tom Lakins, KTech Chairman and AVP for Elavon / US Bank. “From planning and conducting sold-out in-person events late in 2019 and early 2020, to providing informative virtual events once the pandemic occurred, we have strived to meet the needs of our growing technology community.”
“KTech hosted 32 great events over the past year. Two of the biggest events, PolitiCode and Google Cloud Hero, helped put KTech on the map,” remarked Brandon Bruce, technology entrepreneur and co-founder of KTech. “We have big plans for 2021, and we expect that KTech Pulse will build on the current momentum and help bring attention to our members and our community on a national level.”
