In an industry where technology is constantly changing at a rapid rate, it becomes more challenging to stay in tune with the latest technology.  As industry leaders, it is vital that we share our ideas and perspective with peers and colleagues.


An important purpose of the Technology Convergence Conference is to provide high-quality educational sessions for IT Professionals, Facilities Professionals, Data Center Professionals, Chief Information and Technology Officers, Building Operators and anyone involved with the design, planning and project management of a buildings’ facilities infrastructure.

As a presenter, you will interact with an appreciative audience of IT and Facilities professionals who will apply your insights to meet their daily technology and facilities challenges.  Your firm will also have a significant presence as well as name recognition.


  • Gain exposure to over 20,000 IT, Facilities, and Data Center professionals from e-mail campaigns and other marketing promotions.

  • Significant presence as well as name recognition on the event web site and
    banner displays. The web site averages over 2,000 per event.

  • Interact with over 400 IT and Facilities professionals who will apply your insights to meet their daily technology and facilities challenges.

  • Cost-effective local event that is held in the heart of Silicon Valley.

“I had over 100 IT and Facilities professionals attend my session. It was a great opportunity to
share my knowledge about Data Centers and be in front of new prospective clients.”

~ Joe Hamilton, Cornish & Carey
