The PPAI Tech Summit, scheduled to follow NALC in Irving on August 13-15, focuses on the needs of IT professionals, decision-makers and executives responsible for their organization’s technology environment, and will explore some of the most important developments affecting the industry today.

Tech Summit approaches its mission from several different angles, including a briefing on the state of the promotional products industry and what that means for its technical professionals. The conference’s program will also tackle the prevention of IT security threats and the future of cybersecurity, and sharing data in visual storytelling formats, along with a host of other subjects from speakers both within and outside the industry. Tech Summit’s popular roundtables will also return, bringing attendees together to discuss a wide range of trending technology topics.
