We’re combining our two most popular events, Live IT Innovation and IDC Analyst Series, to bring you an evening filled with cocktails, networking, good food, and cutting-edge information from IT innovators. TechTalk events are designed to bring the technology community together to relax, network and hear about the latest mission-critical technologies in a social setting. Enjoy your beverage of choice; munch on appetizers; connect with colleagues and discuss cutting-edge technology with innovative IT manufacturers and their partners.

This event features market analysis from our strategic research partner, IDC, the global leader in market research and analysis. Following the event you’ll be granted access to its highly-valued research package. IDC's CIO Recovery Guides empower IT executives with the strategies needed to optimize IT’s contributions to business success in a post-COVID-19 world.
