San Antonio technology event a good opportunity to learn more about south Texas technology opportunities
Rare is the event in this part of Texas that brings two different technology events events together with one trade show. If you are someone who wants to expand your network within San Antonio, the Innotech event (see press release below) is an excellent opportunity to meet some potential business prospects.

With the help of two local south Texas organizations, the March 6 Innotech trade show should have a program or event for every technology business leader or advocate. The event will be held at both the Norris Conference Center, located within the CrossRoads Mall, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the San Antonio Technology Center, 3463 Magic Drive.

“We are fortunate to have the help of the North San Antonio chamber and the Technology Connexus Association working with us to promote the growth of technology within the San Antonio region,” said Sean Lowery, the executive director of Innotech.

The event begins at 8:30 a.m. with the opening of the exhibit hall, and the first sessions begin at 9 a.m. Program includes: eMail Marketing, Search Engine Marketing Building Blocks, Virtualizations, Managing a Virtualized Environment, The National Security Cyber Threat and Maneuvering PCI DSS Compliance.

The North San Antonio Chamber CIO Panel will begin at 11:30 a.m. The panel features Gary McKnight, chief information officer at Frost, Tom McDonnell, executive vice president, Business Banking Administration, Frost Bank, Eddie Cuellar, CIO, Methodist Healthcare Cystem, Dean Alexander, chief executive officer, Methodist Stone Oak Hospital and Boerne Medical Center, Jerome Charleston, Director of IT, Time Warner Cable, and Jon Gary Herrera, vice president of government and public affairs, Time Warner Cable.

The last sessions for Innotech start at 3:30 p.m., and the exhibit hall closes at 4:30 p.m. The Second annual Technology Connexus Association Technology Showcase and Hi-Tech Mixer starts afterwards at the San Antonio Technology Center.

Program information is available at www.innotechsan.com.

(Note: Innotech has retained my firm as their local public relatons firm, but I believe this event is noteworthy in helping expand the growth of technology along the DCI corridor.)

The Digital Convergence Initiative of the Texas Technology Corridor –

An opportunity to be a leader in establishing Central Texas as the world center of innovation for Digital Convergence.

As more intelligent, smaller digital machines are developed, as digital circuits evolve, and as digital communications becomes ever-more pervasive, they will continue to converge with computers, televisions, security systems, electric appliances, and many other devices, to provide new and useful functions for both the home and work environments.

This is Digital Convergence, and is the tip of the iceberg - the symbiotic coalescence of technologies, markets, and functions forming the foundation for present and future innovation and growth.
