The event will feature nationally recognized keynote speakers, winners of the Top 40 and Top 10 Innovative Georgia Companies competition, the newest inductee into the Technology Hall of Fame of Georgia, networking opportunities, and a two-day exhibitor showcase. Moreover, through interactive strategy sessions and more than a dozen breakout sessions, attendees will help chart the course for the State’s technology community for the coming year and beyond.

Attendees will enhance their knowledge of the most important global tech trends and be inspired by industry leaders. The Summit is designed to fuel the tech innovation economy.

Registration is now open and early-holiday pricing and sponsorship packages are available and going quickly.

TAG is also now accepting applications for the “Top 40 Innovative Companies in Georgia.”

Interested companies from across the state have until January 31, 2018 to apply to be considered for this annual recognition as one of Georgia’s most innovative companies.

“Top 40” recognition will be awarded based on specific criteria focused on innovation, including: degree of innovation, scope and financial impact of innovation, likelihood of success, and promotion of Georgia’s innovative efforts nationally and internationally. To be eligible, companies must be Georgia-based and focused on the creation, development and dissemination of technology.

Companies selected as the “Top 10” and “Top 40” Innovative companies will be showcased at The Summit, including the opportunity of the “Top 10” to address the Summit’s attendees.
