The Tech Coast Conference is being held here in the City of Jacksonville on Wednesday August 21, 2019. The location is at the Jaguars Stadium also known as TIAA Bank Field. If your local then you know that downtown Jax is essentially vacant near the field and its an easy drive in and out to the stadium.
For Jacksonville Florida it has been a busy “tech conference summer” and I wrote back in May about the Top Five Tech Conferences in Jacksonville and Tech Coast Conference was on the list.
Here is the link for the post I made back in May on Medium.
Generally, I attend between 12-16 seminars, conferences or tech related events per year so I have to admit it was sort of nice to not have to huff it off to Orlando, Miami or my usual flight to DC this summer.
I would go to Atlanta more but apparently Delta is the only way to get there non stop and they lost their sense of humor when I skiplagged:)
Apparently, people in Jax are getting stiffed by Delta and like it.
Now lets review what the conference is about and what are the top five reasons to attend. If you a local to northern Florida and your in technology the event should be on your priority list.
What is the Tech Coast Conference?
“The Tech Coast Conference provides a forum for local businesses, IT decision makers, technology innovators from around the world and the skilled local talent pool to present, discuss and share advances, opportunities and solutions.?
