NTC Tech Talks

 

The Tech Talk series is a monthly event where members of the Nashville tech community are invited to hear from those people and companies who are driving change and leading innovation in their fields. We want you to showcase, share, and learn from the ideas, skills, strategies, and technologies that are transforming our community.  Event includes email and social media promotion and registration through NTC’s event calendar. Additional options can be added to include photographer, video recording, and live streaming.

Hosting a Tech Talk means you have the opportunity to give a thought-leading presentation on a topic in your field, the opportunity to do an introduction that more directly promotes your company, a clickable logo on the event website, an opportunity to distribute information/ handouts to all attendees, and logo/promotional inclusion in all marketing materials.

  • Tech Talk content should be framed through the lens of thought-leadership and industry innovation NOT a sales pitch. While you will certainly receive significant company promotion as the Tech Talk host, our goal is to showcase content experts in different industries who can share knowledge with fellow tech community members.
  • Host spots will be filled on a first come – first serve basis, pending content approval.
  • Spots are filling up quickly!
