Technology and tech talent are huge parts of what’s driving the success of our region’s companies these days. That’s been true for a while, and the quest for tech is only increasing. See below.

Tech-focused Summit
After adding a Women in Technology Conference in 2017, the NWA Technology Summit has expanded this year to include a MedTech Healthcare Conference. It’s great to see the continued growth of the summit that’ll occur on Oct. 23 in Rogers, and its sister events (both on Oct. 22).

We’ve heard only 200 tickets remain (no surprise when you consider the featured speakers!), so purchase your tickets ASAP!
