A message from our team

The ITEN WIRED Summit Planning Board has decided to cancel the October 6-8, 2021 Summit. We weighed heavily on the uncertainty of the future status of COVID-19 and being able to ensure a safe environment. The summit’s value and experience for attendees, speakers, and sponsors, relies heavily on an agenda that allows for networking and small sessions that are such a crucial element of the summit.

We are pleased to confirm that the Career Opportunities Expo on October 27 will be held on an all-virtual platform. We are working with Clark University’s Tech Quest and CareerSource Tampa Bay to provide this valuable opportunity to our tech community. The Expo will be free of charge.  Register at

All tickets that have been purchased are 100% refundable. Ticket holders will also be given the opportunity to roll their ticket over to our 2022 Summit that is already being planned for the first week in October. Ticket holders can contact us at to let us know their preference. We will be reaching out to our sponsors and speakers to discuss participation in next year’s summit.

During the time leading up to the summit, we will continue to support the community by offering opportunities to remain engaged.
