As a long time member and proud sponsor of the North Carolina Technology Association (NCTA), Beacon is excited to be participating in NCTA’s Spring Conference, “State of Technology: Technologies for a Smarter Business.” NCTA puts on several great events through out the year.  They serve as an awesome opportunity to hear industry experts speak, network with like minded folks and keep your finger on the pulse of technology within the state.

The Spring Conference should be another fun and informative event.  The event kicks off at Durham’s Sheraton Imperial Hotel with a cocktail reception on Monday night, April 25th and continues through Tuesday.  There are several interesting panel discussions queued up that feature some of the states brightest IT minds.  I’m sure there will be some valuable take aways from their insights on hot topics like: operation optimization, customer acquisition & satisfaction and the evolving role of the modern CIO.

Beacon will be a sponsor, attendee and exhibitor at the event.  If you will be at the event as well, be sure to drop by our booth and say hello.   It would be great to meet you and hear your perspectives on the sate of technology.
