ITEN WIRED: GROWING THE CYBER COAST

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.

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.

ITEN WIRED is a not-for-profit, technology-focused conference.  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.

The next ITEN WIRED Summit will take place on October 18-20, 2023.

Meet the Team

The ITEN WIRED | TechNet CyberCoast planning team is composed of volunteers from IT Gulf Coast, AFCEA Blue Angels Pensacola Chapter, and other members of our local IT, tech and entrepreneurial community.
