ITEN (Innovation Technology Education Network) WIRED Summit is annual conference of the Information Technology Association of the Gulf Coast, Inc. (IT Gulf Coast). It is known as 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.
ITEN WIRED is a not-for-profit, technology-focused event. Proceeds from the event are used to support IT Gulf Coast’s local STEM initiatives, including endowments to the University of West Florida and Pensacola State College. IT Gulf Coast, established in 2008, is a Pensacola based, 501(c)6 non-profit trade association for students, educators, IT professionals and corporate members of our community. Our business memberships range from government, non-profits, for-profit private and public companies. They also range from single owner/operator entities to multi-billion dollar conglomerates.
Our mission is to promote business and technology within our community, provide social and networking opportunities, produce educational content that specifically aids our member base, as well as assists in fundamentally changing how we inspire the youth of our community to the possibilities of a career in technology. Our partnership with corporations inspires them to not only expand here, but to be actively involved in developing programs in our communities that benefit all age groups and backgrounds.
