ITEN WIRED: GROWING THE CYBER COAST
ITEN (Innovation Technology Education 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.
The summit, which began as an economic development initiative in 2008 by the Greater Pensacola Chamber of Commerce, is now hosted by IT Gulf Coast and Florida West Economic Development Alliance.
ITEN WIRED also operates as a not-for-profit, tourism-focused, community event with proceeds being donated back to local STEM initiatives, including an endowment with the University of West Florida’s College of Science and Engineering.
The next ITEN WIRED Summit will take place on October 6-8, 2021.
Meet the Team
The ITEN WIRED planning team is composed of volunteers from IT Gulf Coast, Florida West Economic Development Alliance, and other members of our local IT, tech and entrepreneurial community.
