ITPalooza Tickets at Prices for Every Budget – A Tremendous Value!

We are just about 3 weeks away from our big event, ITPalooza, which is being held on Thursday December 7th at the Broward Convention Center. Part of what we wanted to insure is that we continued to get our South Florida Tech Community involved and thus make sure that this was affordable for everyone that wanted to participate. We also wanted to make sure that we continued our support of the US Marines Toys for Tots Program, which last year ITPalooza was the 3rd largest contributor of Toys in the region, which is acknowledged in the video clip by the US Marines, who presented us 2 awards at the bottom of this message.

The pricing for #itp17 is simple, if you bring a Toy for donation to the US Marines Toys for Tots, then your cost is $35 + the Toy or you can pay $65 to attend. If you choose to attend our Evening/After Hours Event from 5pm-7pm, your admission is free if you again bring a Toy for donation. Finally for those that want to attend our VIP Experience, that cost is $250. You can register for any of these options at www.itpalooza.org.

ITPalooza is a great opportunity to Learn-Connect-Grow with the Strategic Technology Leaders of South Florida all under one roof in one day! We have Thought Leaders, Speakers and Panelists from some of the most impactful organizations in our area such as AutoNation, Modernizing Medicine, Dell/EMC, Vitas Healthcare, Miami-Dade County Public Schools, IronHack, ABB Optical Group, Jackson Health System, Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance, US Gas & Electric, First Green Bank, IBM, Mount Sinai Medical Center, WLRN Public Radio & Television and many, many more!

There is tremendous value in what ITPalooza is bringing to the community so please purchase your tickets today at www.itpalooza.org.

Thanks in advance for your support!
