2021 State of Tech Speakers

The 2021 State of Technology conference will explore the intersection of the customer, employee, and user experiences, otherwise known as the Total Experience (TX). Enabled by hybrid cloud, artificial intelligence, data, automation, IoT and edge computing, and more, the Total Experience gives organizations a competitive advantage, especially in response to circumstances such as the COVID-19 pandemic.

The virtual summit, scheduled for the mornings of May 12 + 13, is NC TECH's flagship annual tech conference with engaging keynotes, interactive panel discussions, fast paced startup pitch competition and a virtual Exhibit Showcase.
