Carolina Technology ConferenceThe Carolina Technology Conference, taking place on October 18, 2011, at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center in downtown Columbia, will bring industry leaders from some of the most well-known technology companies, including EMC, Microsoft, Google, Citrix, VMWare and others to the conference. The Carolina Technology Conference will offer training, hands-on labs, security sessions and exciting announcements from major technology companies.

IT-oLogy, a non profit collaboration of companies and academic institutions, is partnering with the Carolina Technology Conference through the IT-oLogy Career Corner, an area in the Expo Hall geared toward students, underemployed and unemployed who are searching for ways to increase their value in this competitive and dynamic field. IT-oLogy is also whipping up a recipe for success with an education track aimed at professionals looking to enhance their skills.

“When IT professionals come together in a conference like this and share knowledge, especially with future talent, every company represented benefits from the potential new ideas,” says Lonnie Emard, IT-oLogy Executive Director.

The Carolina Technology Conference started as a joint venture between several local user groups, and has expanded over the years to include many different partners, industries and tracks. Early registration runs through October 7, 2011 and is only $7. Registration includes breakfast, lunch, door prizes and full admission to the Expo Hall and Career Corner. A portion of all ticket proceeds will be donated to local charities. STUDENTS – register for free by October 13!

“The Carolina Technology Conference is a not-to-be-missed event, and we look forward to participating again this year with much anticipation,” says eGroup’s Tal Lassiter. “Participants can expect all the bells and whistles of a conference that they would normally spend thousands of dollars attending.”
