NJ’s Largest Tech Expo, IT Connect, Is Set To Launch on September 9th, Garden State Expo Center
September 9th and 10th at the Garden State Expo Center in Somerset will be the home of the first ever IT Connect Expo. The two-day extravaganza will include over 30 Top Notch Speakers with 5 Panels and over a dozen Seminars, 60 Plus Exhibitors, Interactive Technology Exhibits, Start Up Competition with the ability to receive up to $1 Million in Venture Capital Funds and that is just the start of it.
The event is free for Attendees and supported by more than a dozen plus Partners ranging from NJ Advance Media, NJ Tech Council, NJBIA, Big Data Alliance, NJ Community College Consortium for Workforce & Economic Development, NJ Small Business Development Center, Rutgers University, Saint Peter’s University, iCIMS, SAP, Nimble, Radiant Heritage, to the Health Care and Technology Talent Networks plus a dozen more.
The vast Partnership and all-encompassing program of the two day event reflects the vision of the organization’s Chairman, Nimish Kadakia of Aha Designs. Kadakia envisioned a Technology Expo, which more than showcased the newest, latest and greatest, but an event which was the destination to “Connect” with anything or “IT,” thus the name IT Connect Expo.
This year’s event will focus on 5 key areas to help make the event, the “IT” Connection destination: Educate & Develop Tomorrow’s Technology Leaders, Highlight Industry Trends Through In-Depth & Targeted Panel Discussions, Empower Women To Move Forward In Technology Based Careers, Provide The Support Necessary For IT Innovation & Start-Ups, and Showcase Emerging Technologies & New Innovation.
“This event will have something for everyone from Business Leaders to Techies, Entrepreneurs, Investors, and Casual Tech Users to Students” explained Kadakia. He went on to elaborate, “We carefully selected topics, speakers, exhibits and partners to ensure a great experience for our attendees and all involved. The end result is an excellent event, which is ready to launch; after almost 2 years of dedicated work. I could not have done it with the great team we have.”
