Techweek, one of the largest technology conferences in the country, is coming this week to Kansas City for the first time. KC was chosen because of the incredible tech growth we have had in the area thanks to Google Fiber. The arrival of Techweek shows the nation that Kansas City is on the cutting edge. Besides the awesome parties and networking events, here are three events we are excited to attend during Techweek KC.
This is the event that really dives into how Kansas City has grown with Google Fiber and other tech initiatives along with predictions and plans for the future of Kansas City’s tech community. The Emerging City conference lasts for the majority of the morning on Thursday, September 17 with three separate sections. The first part is featuring a keynote from Mayor Sly James about the growth Kansas City has seen and what he hopes for the future. The second part focuses on the future of the KC tech landscape. Part three delves into next generation ecosystems that are planned or need to be planned to continue Kansas City’s technology surge.
Technology is the future of how all businesses will be constructed. There are so many options for tech available that picking and choosing which will be most effective can make a huge difference in a business’ growth against competitors. These conference looking at Kansas City’s growth will analyze how tech will shape the future and inspire businesses to adopt solutions in their own infrastructure.
All the Smart Things
All the Smart Things is a conference being held Thursday, September 17 in the afternoon. It will focus on the Internet of Things and what the future of connectivity means for us personally and professionally. MDL Technology sees an emergency of the IoT in some of our specialized industries, such as HVAC and construction. The problem with this rapid growth is the lack of security and accountability for data. We hope the conference will address the security issue IoT brings to businesses.
Engaging Kids Through Gaming
Engaging Kids Through Gaming is a conference led by John Kreicbergs, a digital engagement maven with 16 years experience. He is the president of a children’s entertainment startup among other accolades. MDL Technology believes educating kids in technology will greatly benefit the future of business. We are interested to hear Kreicberg’s strategy on what gaming can do to help children engage.
