Forum description

The SINC TOLA IT Leaders Forum will bring together the top innovative IT leaders across Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas for 2 days of engagement.  The Forum will address the topics that most directly impact the resource challenges of the attendees, which in turn, will drive the growth of the TOLA region’s IT industry and community.

With the massive technology boom in Texas widely covered in the mainstream media, little has been mentioned about the coupling effect that Texas’ growth has had on the rest of the region.  Many major businesses like Walmart, Dillard’s, FedEx and CenturyLink have been operating throughout the region for years, establishing IT best practices, developing some of the top IT talent and keeping the region at the forefront of business.

The Forum will be geared towards strengthening the IT community across TOLA, while creating beneficial networking opportunities that will contribute to the IT industry’s growth throughout the region.  IT service providers and executives alike, will engage through presentations on top industry trends, one-on-one engagements, and open-discussion group meetings.With support from local institutions, associations and government bodies, this program will redefine executive level networking in one of the fastest growing regions in the United States.

Dates: April 8th – 10th, 2018
Location: Four Seasons Dallas at Las Colinas
