ITEN WIRED Summit 2021
Join us on the #CyberCoast on October 6-8, 2021 in beautiful Pensacola Beach, Florida.
ITEN (Innovation Technology Entrepreneurship Network) WIRED Summit is the Southeast’s premier cybersecurity and IT conference to connect, collaborate and build community with industry leaders, entrepreneurs and educators on innovation, technology and entrepreneurship topics.
The three-day event highlights the area’s cybersecurity, information technology and entrepreneurial communities and explores emerging technology and innovators in start-up tech, artificial intelligence, robotics, and emerging technologies on the national scene.

“We average $150,000 in new business a year from the direct contacts we make as a corporate sponsor of ITEN WIRED! I would recommend that any company doing business in Northwest Florida sponsor this event!“
– TJ Edwards, RJ Young
“ITEN WIRED significantly contributes to the development and expansion of the Cyber Coast. The summit highlights emerging trends and thought leaders in cybersecurity and technology and brings the community together to enhance collaboration, innovation, and entrepreneurship. We are honored to continue supporting ITEN WIRED and the Cyber Defense Competition, which provides opportunities for students to gain real-world experience and network with professionals. We appreciate the opportunity that the summit provides to exchange ideas, develop partnerships and advance the Cyber Coast.“

Hilton Pensacola Beach overlooking the stunning emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico, just steps from water sports, shopping, dining and entertainment.
Blue skies, sugar white sands and emerald waters. There’s a reason why ITENWIRED is held on beautiful Pensacola Beach, recently named #5 on TripAdvisor’s Top 25 U.S. Beaches.
“What ITEN WIRED does is bring together the community dedicated to business growth in IT Services for NW Florida. It attracts talent, business leaders and innovation to connect at the event and learn from each other. At the 2018 ITEN WIRED, a small business outreach initiative (SBOI) attracted agency representatives, large prime contractors and small businesses actively working on and pursuing federal contracting.”
